What Makes Us Special?
For more than 55 years, The Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter and Sanctuary has been dedicated to the shelter, protection, and care of homeless cats. We believe every cat is adoptable and deserves a chance at a happy, healthy life. Our 9000-sq-ft, cage-free shelter houses 200+ cats at a time and we rescue about 700 cats annually. All of our cats roam freely in their designated sections of the shelter, including outdoor, enclosed ‘catios’. We are one of a very small number of accredited sanctuaries in the entire United States which shelters cats with FIV (Feline Immune-Deficiency Virus) and FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus). Our goal is to find the perfect adopter for every cat, but, following a no-kill philosophy, we provide cats with a safe home for as long as they need it. At The Hermitage, we ensure that every cat who enters our shelter is given the best in medical and physical care, including affection. Here, each cat is treated as an amazing, individual being.
