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 50 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 Tilda

Our Featured Feline

Tilda was terribly injured prior to her rescue (by none other than Southside Sandi,) so her left rear leg has quite the pronounced limp to it; in fact she walks as if she has been sitting in the saddle for a bit too long, but the hitch in her giddy-up doesn’t hamper her mobility – or agility – in the least.

Our shelter director states that she secretly loves attention, but she won’t act like it though if you move towards her too quickly. She’s a bit jumpy, but once she doesn’t feel threatened she can be a sweet girl. I can see her becoming a lap cat with the right person. I think if she went to a quiet home where they DO NOT pill her directly but rather put it in her food like we do she could be adopted. She still gets upset if anyone gets too much in her face. Little girl likes her space. 🙂
