Support our Claws

Crash’s Landing is Grand Rapids’ largest no-kill shelter for at-risk and stray cats, devoted to taking those without a home and putting them in a loving and caring environment. We are a big family, and many of our kids have had a rough life so far.  Many have been abused, abandoned or neglected, so we do our best to make sure their home has everything they need. Keeping everyone happy, healthy, and safe is no small task. With over 80 of our guys to take care of, our monthly budget is over $14,000. Medical supplies, food, rent, utilities…and that’s just scratching the surface! We rely exclusively on donations and volunteers, and that is why it means so much to us that we have friends to help take care of us.

Because our focus is on helping at-risk cats, their medical needs can be quite extensive when they first arrive at our doorstep. Many have severe injuries or illnesses that need serious care. It is not uncommon for one of our new fuzzbutts to need an operation or two to get back on all fours.

Meet Irene

Our Featured Feline

Irene is a gentle girl who desperately needs an environment that is less boisterous than ours at Crash’s, as she tends to keep her distance and perch herself up as high as possible until things settle down. When all is quiet, she will make her way down to ground level and wander about, and during her weekly cat checks she is easy to handle and doesn’t scurry off immediately there after, but she most definitely needs a home where she can come out of her shell at her own pace. Placing her with another shy feline would be ideal—someone she can chum around with who is also a calming, confident presence. She will have to go into a home with another cat, as too much time spent alone has made her wary of getting too involved with the others, though she is slowly acclimating. She has been extremely healthy, other than needing 2 teeth extracted upon intake, and honestly she is extremely low maintenance; as long as we can find someone who is patient and kind, who has no expectations for her, and will allow her to determine her own comfort level, we feel Irene will be content and continue to let her guard down.
