​   Catmandu takes a different approach in caring for homeless cats. Instead of shutting them in individual steel cages, we provide them with a homey, cage-free environment that helps them become more adoptable.

  Many of the cats that come to us have been abandoned and are living on the streets. We help them feel safe and teach them to love and trust people again.  We are an adoption driven facility; our goal is to find good furever homes for the cats and kittens in our care.

   Catmandu is completely community supported. We receive no government funding or support from other organizations. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization; donations are tax deductible.

Here is a short video about us

Catmandu is funded entirely by donations, adoption fees, and sales from our gift shop. We receive NO government or outside funding. We depend completely on the support of the community for our continued existence. The more assistance we receive from donations and volunteers, the more we are able to do. If you like what we are doing, please give what you can to help us continue.


Looking for a new best friend? Catmandu is the place to go! With approximately 60 adoptable cats/kittens on site, there is a big variety of sizes, ages, colors, and temperaments to choose from. The one thing they all have in common is that they are patiently waiting for their new family to come and take them home. Meet them online at Petfinder.

You Do What You Can Do




Volunteers are what keep Catmandu purring along.   Without the wonderful people who donate their time, energy, talents, and love; we would have to close our doors.  If you have some time and want to help, we would love to talk to you! We have many volunteer opportunities available. Volunteer information, including forms and a schedule, are found here.
