The Cats’ Cradle is a nonprofit, cat rescue operated solely by volunteers serving the Unifor area. All Cats’ Cradle kitties are in foster homes, they are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, litter box trained and indoor only kitties. The adoption fee for our felines is $90 and we have a 30 day refund or exchange policy for those situations where the kitty does not bond with the family or resident animals.

Mission Statement

The Cats’ Cradle is a no-kill nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing, sheltering and finding homes for homeless cats and kittens in Burke, Caldwell and Catawba Counties.
