Love is a gift of Purina Kitten Chow and Litter! With over 100 kittens to feed every day, we need your help.

Kitty City is always honored when families choose us to make memorial donations, birthday honorings, and other gifts. Recently a lady passed who loved cats and the Beatles - so we were pleased to name "John, Pauline, Georgina and Ringo" in memory of her passions, and the family asked that donations to Kitty City be made in lieu of flowers.
The Nicholas Stoner Kitten Fund
Kitten season is almost here and the Nicholas Stoner fund will help pay for the care of many of the kittens that come into Kitty City.
Please consider making a donation to this fund and save a kitten!

Letters to Mom from Kitty City kittens
Rescue can be overwhelming. Each day our staff deals with hundreds of unwanted puppies and kittens and dogs and cats. Unfortunately there is not space or resources for them all. Please understand that we may not be able to accept your animals in need.

Once again, Cabarrus CARES won the NC Veterinary Medicine Association award for our education programs. Summer camps are awesome! Three sessions are scheduled – Basic Animal Care for grades 3 – 5, Advanced Care for grades 6 – 12, and “So You Want to Be a Vet?” for 6th grade and up. The Basic Care Camp is scheduled for June 23 – 26. Advanced Care Camp is July 7 – 10 and Vets Camp is July 14 – 17. Cost of each session is $125. Camps begin at 9 a.m. and end at 2 p.m. Class size is limited to 12. This is intensive learning and many campers return each year to pick up new knowledge. Reserve your spot now.
Kitty City is dedicated to the proposition that effective spay/neuter programs are the only way to control overpopulation of companion animals – we can never just adopt our way out of the dilemma. We constantly preach it to our students and encourage them to create programs within our community to help with the surgeries.
A young man
named Joshua is about to embark on an ambitious Eagle
Scout project that will help Meals on Wheels clients
spay their cats and dogs. For many shut-ins, a
pet is the only friend they have to talk with during
long lonely days. Preventing one cat from becoming a
family of rapidly multiplying kittens can be essential
to keeping that friend.
Obviously the more money he raises, the more pets we can alter. After reaching his goal of $1000 (or exceeding it!) he will work with Meals on Wheels staff to identify the families where he will pick up pets for delivery to the spay-neuter clinic. He will then return the pets a day after surgery.We congratulate Joshua on his efforts to bring joy to so many people!
Lenny and Squiggy who just came to Kitty City on 4/19
and are ready to be adopted.
New Cats and Kittens are added all of the time.
Be sure to check the 'Current Available Pets' that are Ready to be Adopted often to see who is New!
School programs are perking up, and just in time – many accidents involving dog bites occur during warm spring weather. Patsy and beagle Abby visited in Kannapolis Intermediate School in February, and Patsy took our teaching dog Tinker to Coltrane Web Magnet School in March. Both schools held fundraisers to help us prepare for kitten season, when we take in so many baby animals.We are already stockpiling Purina Kitten Chow and litter in anticipation of our rising numbers.

Kitty City Welcomes Students!

We’re Not Just Another Pretty Face …
(although we do adopt a lot of cute critters into loving new homes) – But Kitty City is also an education center and a community resource center.
We teach pet safety and responsibility to thousands of children in schools in five counties. We mentor Eagle Scouts and high school graduation projects. We show kindergarteners how to survive an attack and we teach teenagers compassion and respect for life .
We also partner with Meals on Wheels, Concord Parks and Recreation, area veterinarians and many other rescue organizations to improve life for pets and the people who love them through innovative spay/neuter campaigns and health care programs.
To promote COOPERATION, COMMUNICATION and EDUCATION among animal advocates and companion pet owners.
Kitty City thanks all the kind souls that make donations of time and money through out the year. Kitty City could not operate without your gifts!
