Darius was a Companion Cats' rescue kitten adopted by Sharleen.
You're too cute, Darius!
Companion Cats is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization made up of volunteers. Our mission is to spay or neuter un-owned cats to reduce overpopulation, thus ending the suffering of abandoned and homeless cats living on the streets.

.....Once spayed our goal is to place them in an environment that best fits each cat. This method provides the most humane living situation possible. Both friendly and feral alike deserve the perfect forever home. If the cat is not very friendly but is homeless, perhaps this means being a “Barn Buddy” or being introduced into a controlled colony. If feral kittens are found, it might mean living in a volunteer foster care home where they can be socialized until old enough to be tested for FIV & FeLV, spayed and vaccinated prior to adoption.
Member and volunteer, Sharleen Garrison, snapped this adorable picture of her rescue-kitty, Darius. Check this picture out in the March 2012 issue of Cat Fancy magazine (page 63.)
Did You Know?
During 2012 there were 250 adoptions and in 2011 we spayed/neutered 970 cats & kittens. In addition, approximately 200 of our Companion Cats went to their "forever homes". Woo Hoo!
"...'til every cat has a home."

No Silly Kitten Nonsense...
Take the opportunity to get acquainted with the older, more mature cats available at Companion Cats' shelter. Gracie is our featured Senior Pet. You won't catch Gracie rip-roaring through your house, climbing your curtains or playing with everything not nailed to the floor. This older woman would rather decorate your coach with her sophisticated-self or keep your lap warm during those cold winter months. Cats can live 20+ years, so Gracie could have plenty more years of love left to offer. No silly kitten nonsense from Gracie. She'll be too busy napping or asking for affection with a gentle brush of her head.
More about Companion Cats

While our main goal is to spay or neuter un-owned cats, the Companion Cats' spay/neuter clinic is also a no-kill shelter licensed through the State of Michigan. Unfortunately, like most shelters, our space is very limited. While we do offer shelter for un-owned friendly cats and kittens waiting for new homes, we can only take additional cats as space allows. Please be aware, we do have a long waiting list at this time. To be added to the waiting list please call 269-753-5594 and leave a detailed message.

The advantages of adopting a rescue cat: While there is no up-front fee for a “free to good home” kitten, typically that free kitten also has no vaccinations, has not been tested for FeLV or FIV and has not been spayed or neutered. The average cost of testing alone is $50. When adopting from Companion Cats, we ask for at least a $50 donation, which includes being tested, vaccinated and fixed. We can also tell you a lot about each cat's personality, including likes and dislikes, temperament, etc.

Adopt A Less Adoptable Pet
We're Special In So Many Ways
A few of our cats are considered "special needs", meaning they are less adoptable than most. They may have special dietary needs, they may be seniors, black cats, have special physical limitations, require daily medication, have a bit of "Cat-titude" or may be FIV or FeLV positive, but each cat will certainly make a loving companion and they are special in their own unique way.

Make this Tucker's lucky day. . .
Not only was Tucker abandon and left homeless with no shelter or regular meals, he is also the least likely to be adopted because people in the US are superstitious of black cats. To make matters worse, he's also FIV positive. It's been a hard life, but Tucker's luck is turning around. He is no longer suffering in the cold and always has a full bowl. He even has his very own clean bed to sleep in. At approximately 2-years-old he is now a healthy 16-17 pounds! Anyone who adopts Tucker will truly be lucky in love. He has so much to offer. Tucker is wishing upon a star for a forever home where he can snuggle-up in a warm lap. Make Tucker your 4-leaf-clover.
