A Crazy Little Thing Called Hope

Something wonderful is happening for cats at the shelter.  Here’s the story. 

Our shelter has one communal room where cats can move about freely.  All our other cats live in kennels.  They have not had a designated play area and have had to wait for our multi-purpose, cat evaluation and adopter get-acquainted room to be empty in order to stretch their legs, play, race around the room and cuddle with volunteers.  Now, thanks to a grant from Petfinder Foundation Rescue U and BISSELL Pet Foundation, a play room has been built.  Our cheerful and generous dogs, who get outside to play at least once a day, gave up two kennels that were remodeled into cat play space.


This ability to play is serious business for our cats.  Stress is a problem for shelter cats and stress leads to illness, most commonly upper respiratory infections.  The ability to play and socialize helps reduce stress and we think our cats will be healthier as a result.  We have that crazy little thing called hope – hope that this playroom will, literally, save lives. 


As always, we strive to use your support to create new possibilities. Whether you volunteer, donate or adopt, we are grateful for the hope you bring to the animals at our shelter. 


CRHS is a member of the No More Homeless Pets Partnership.

We recently received a grant from Best Friends Animal Society to reduce the adoption fee for select animals who might be harder to place because of a medical condition, breed or personality trait such as shyness.  For these animals there is a $40 reduction in the adoption fee, $20 from the grant matched by $20 from CRHS.
