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.

You can also support our cause on Amazon.

Meet Tess of the P'urrbervilles

Our Featured Feline

Tess sure has had a tough life for such a young cat. Having a litter of kittens was hard enough, but to live outside fending for herself AND her little family must have been so difficult. She is a very sweet little lady who loves nothing more than to follow us around and soak up all the well-deserved attention. She completely trusts people, but is still somewhat cautious being around the other cats. She’s not physically aggressive, but does growl when she feels threatened. She really needs to either be an only cat or live with one other with the proper, slow introduction. She would make the perfect girl for a family with kids as she is very gentle and likes her lap time.
