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
Aoife is as sassy as she is pretty! If another cat gets too close to her, she’s likely to let out a scream that sends them all scattering. She’s never been aggressive, but with her high pitch howl, she’s just demanding her own space. Aoife looks like a princess and acts like one too! She likes to sit above the catio, the picture-perfect regal entity that she is, and look down among the peasants. She loves to be brushed and will require this to be undertaken often with her fine, but thick hair. Because she is very sweet-natured with people, she would do well in any type of home – if there were no other pets. She’s a little more reserved and not as in your face as some of the others like Lil’ John, Raylan, The Fonz, but she can often be found reaching her pretty paw out to lure a volunteer into lavishing her with attention. I think I’ve always thought of her as the perfect playmate and companion for a little girl who is looking to adopt her very own kitty. 🙂
