Catmandu is not your normal shelter. We are cage-free: the cats go where they want in the 3900 sf building, catios, barn and fenced back yard.


We use homeopathy for much of our basic health care, but also use a vet when necessary. Dr. Sean Peck of All Creatures Mobile Vet does a fabulous job when one of our kitties needs testing, surgery or regular vet care. All Creatures supports Catmandu through discounted services; please support them with your business if you need a vet. 

Catmandu is community supported. We receive no government funding; relying on donations and community support to keep the doors open. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization; donations are tax deductible.

Catmandu accepts a limited number of kittens, as well as adult and senior cats on a space available basis. When someone is adopted, it opens up a slot for a new cat to come in.

We have many wonderful cats needing forever homes and would love to introduce you to your new best friend.

Every cat that you adopt makes room for another cat needing shelter and security.

Ways To Help Catmandu

  • Adopt

Senior 2 Senior

Long-term Foster Program


   The  Senior 2 Senior program places senior cats (age 10+) with senior citizens in a long-term foster situation. The cat remains with the person for the rest of their life. 

   However, if something should happen to the person the cat returns to us.

   Through a combination of nutrition, homeopathy and vet care, we provide for the medical needs of the cat.

   If needed, we can deliver food and litter to the foster. For those on a small fixed income, donations and sponsorships will cover the cost of their cat supplies.

Everybody Wins!
