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!

Our Featured Feline
Roald is doing so much better than when he first arrived. He was a bit of a stinker, making it clear that he required some time and patience as he settled into his new surroundings. He is getting along pretty well with all his new roomies now that he’s comfortable with us. He’s not real crazy about being handled or brushed yet, but he’s getting there. He will need to go to a home with older kids because he can be unpredictable at times, and we think he might do well with a playful dog. He’s pretty handsome so I definitely see him developing quite the fan club. He’s trying to be a good boy, it’s just hard for him sometimes. 🙂
