Hadley Home for Wayward Cats is a 501(c)(3) organization focused on providing a new beginning for unwanted cats who might otherwise be euthanized. We provide a safe, loving foster environment for rehabilitation and medical needs, with the ultimate goal of finding them new forever homes. We educate the public on the importance of spaying and neutering and how to choose the right pet for their family in order to reduce the population of unwanted pets in our community.
Many cats surrendered to local shelters are placed on the Euthanasia List because of medical conditions or diagnosis that the shelter has determined too costly to treat. Our goal is to pull these cats out of shelters before their Euthanasia date and provide them with the necessary care so that they too have a chance of finding a forever home.
Cats who have been diagnosed with a chronic illness or have long-term special needs often are often considered “unadoptable”. Our goal is to provide these types of cats with a healthy and safe environment where they can live out their days until a special person comes along to adopt them.
Hadley Home for Wayward Cats has volunteer and foster opportunities available at all skill and interest levels. Our goal is to nurture a team of experienced and dedicated cat-lovers who will contribute to our mission by educating their communities about the animal welfare issues that will help to reduce the homeless pet population.
“Time spent with cats is never wasted.”
Each year, 2.7 million adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized in the United States, simply because too many pets come into shelters and too few people consider adoption when looking for a pet. The number of euthanized animals could be reduced dramatically if more people adopted pets instead of buying them.
It is the policy of Hadley Home for Wayward Cats that all potential animal adopters complete an Adoption Consultation Form and an interview with an Adoption Coordinator in order to be considered as a forever home for our animals. Hadley Home for Wayward Cats will determine the best home for each animal based on the application process and interview. After review of the adoption consultation form and the completion of the interview with the Adoption Coordinator, Hadley Home for Wayward Cats may recommend a different animal that is more suited to your household. Completion of the application and interview process does not guarantee an approval or guarantee the adoption of a particular animal. Hadley Home for Wayward Cats is a privately run, non-profit organization and reserves the right to refuse any adoption that is not in the best interest of the animal based on our policies and standards.
