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.

Building Capital Campaign

Helix is one of our most amazing cats at Crash’s! He and another kitty named Nebula were rescued from a hoarding situation in Montcalm County. His eyes were so severe that they reached out and asked for our help. If you watch him in action, you would never know that he is completely blind. We feel he is the perfect representative for our capital  campaign and embodies why we want to give all of the kitties in our care more space to romp and roam and play…and in his case, climb like crazy!

Meet Cedric

Our Featured Feline

Cedric is one of our most affectionate boys, and he is absolutely obsessed with being close to your feet or at your heels at all times. We do have to wonder if this is a separation thing with him because once you sit down by his side he quickly crawls into your lap, begging you not to get up and leave. He doesn’t have a mean bone in his body, is often seen hanging out with the quieter cats, and LOVES attention. He is as adorable as he is friendly. We would love to see him in a home with kids that will spend every spare minute with him, whether it be just hanging out or engaging him in play with his toys. He deserves all the endless attention he can soak up and a home where he never has to worry about being distanced from his very own family. We don’t think this is too much to ask for and are happy to make it our mission to provide Cedric with the life and family he has always dreamed of!
