Meet The Fab Fur !
The Beatles

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!

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.

  It is Kitten Season and Kitty City has scores of kittens. All needing food, litter, spay/neutering, shots and loving homes. There are always more kittens in need than Kitty City has room and resources to help.


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

lab pups

This past week nine frightened little lab puppies were dumped at an animal shelter. Somehow their photo and plea for help went through channels just when our director was wondering which of a hundred tasks she ought to tackle that day ... So she dropped everything and spent hours driving through heavy rain to fetch them to safety. That night they were snug and dry in a puppy-pile in her kennel. Seeing them frolic in her yard just before rain came back made her feel like she did something worthwhile that day. But think of it - how many perish? What makes the message go through for some, while so many unwanted pups and kittens don't make it to a safe haven? Do animal mamas have prayers that their babies will be safe? We don't know - but we like thinking that she might have been the answer to someone's prayers that day.

Kitty City/Cabarrus CARES is more than a kitty adoption center, it is also animal education and community resource center.
Part of our education programs involve teaching our kids to teach others.  Learn how a special student named Maddie Seabold played a part in a school reading program.

kittenWe’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 .

kittenWe 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. 

Our Mission:
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!
