We care for some of Michigan’s most vulnerable cats
Our rescue is dedicated to providing medical care, comfort and stability to the cats we can and we are typically operating at maximum capacity. As a non-kill rescue, this means we turn away cats we do not have space and finances to offer a great environment. We realize our intake procedure is quite limited, but due to the exceedingly high numbers of homeless cats in our area, we have had to fine-tune our intake process to better serve the cats most in need.
Update July 15th, 2019: Sadly, due to space limitations, a full house, and a slow adoption season, we are no longer accepting cats into our program at Crash’s. Once we are able to open our doors again we will let the public know. It is difficult for us to have to do this, but our shelter can only do so much – and we are trying!
We do not accept:
- Owner surrender cats
- Stray kittens less than 6 months old
- Cats outside of Michigan
- Cats dropped off without contacting us in advance
- We take in a very limited number of cats from email and phone requests
We hope that you will continue to care for the stray cat you have found. If you are not in a position to wait for us to have an opening, please contact The Humane Society of West Michigan or another shelter. Please note that we have no control over when there will be an open spot available at Crash’s or Sid’s; be prepared, as the wait could be several months. Contact us at 616-826-1303 or email our intake director at firstname.lastname@example.org
- There is a $40 to $60 intake donation needed to cover the initial costs of getting your stray program-ready.
- You are welcome to email us back periodically to see if we have an opening for your stray, but we do recommend that you seek alternate placement options in the meantime. Due to the high number of emails we receive on a daily basis, it will not be possible for us to contact you weekly or monthly.
Thank you for caring about the stray cat in your possession; we need more folks like you!
It may take up to 48 hrs to respond to your call or email. We will do our best to respond to your inquiry as soon as possible.
For cats we do not accept, please contact The Humane Society of West Michigan, Reuben’s Room, or one of the other fine shelter or rescue organizations in the area. Please understand that ALL shelters, whether open door or not, are always at maximum capacity. They have finite resources and when they reach maximum capacity, with more still coming in the door, they have to make the hard decision to euthanize perfectly healthy animals.
