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.

Our Featured Feline
Ramoana is starting to interact more with other cats, most specifically Karen—and if you know Karen, well, you understand that the two are polar opposites! When its quiet, I see them chasing each other and having fun; I thought it seemed like an unlikely friendship, but they sure do have a blast. She is still very shy and unsure of people, and I feel she will need a little more time before she is ready to be adopted. She’s getting used to living inside and is letting us approach her more, but will still run off if she feels threatened or scared. When she is ready, she will do best in a quiet home with another cat or two. Like Melvin, she will need a very special place that will suit and support her timid personality.
