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 Steve French

Our Featured Feline

Steve French is a sweet heart with people but he hates his roommates. He follows volunteers around and will climb right in your lap if you sit down. He is proving himself to be a ‘ONE CAT’ kinda cat, as he is not at all crazy about the others and is definitely not afraid to let them (or us!) know. He will hiss, swat and growl, but for all of his grumbling, we have never seen him actually physically fight with any other cat. He LOVES people and wants people to love on ONLY HIM. He can come off as a bit of a bad boy, but once he knows that it’s all about him, he is fine. We have placed him in a natural pheromone calming collar to help him settle down around the others. He will 100% need to be in a home where he is the only cat. One with adults and older kids would be perfect for him as he learns and begins to understand that he doesn’t need to sport his ‘tough guy’ persona anymore.
