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.

Meet Thorfinn

Our Featured Feline

I couldn’t be happier with his progress! He still isn’t crazy about being brushed or having his nails trimmed, but he’s starting to relax and let his guard down a little. He may be on borrowed time with us, but if there is anything we can do to make his life quality its best, I’m there to spoil him. He absolutely loves to be around people, and that makes me happy knowing that he is soaking up all the attention he deserves. He’s a great cat that has fit right in with The Clubhouse gang and I don’t think he’s complaining! Thorfinn is a talker who is large in both size and personality. He certainly doesn’t hold back in letting you know he doesn’t like something! He has come out of his shell quite a bit. He’s gone from spending most of his time in the cat check room to spending most of the day strutting around looking for attention…when he’s not snoozing. He had a lot of fun playing in a cardboard box I put on the floor the other day and quickly claimed it for himself. I think it’s interesting he has been a stinker for brushing because I brushed him when he first came in and he was super into it. I got A LOT of hair out and he never protested in any way. I guess with a cat you never know what they’ll change their mind about!
