Saving the lives of cats since 1994

Happy Endings is a nonprofit 501(c)(3), no-kill organization run solely by volunteers who have been saving lives since 1994. It is the mission of Happy Endings to find permanent homes for unwanted, stray, abused or feral animals that are brought to us or rescued from the street.

Small Donation. Big Difference.

Each year we place over 200 cats into loving forever homes. Over ninety percent of the cats taken in are not up-to-date on vaccinations and are not spayed or neutered. Each year over $80,000 is spent on medical expenses. As an all donation run organization, it is generous people like you and many fundraising events that allow us to continue saving lives.

If you could save a life, would you?

Volunteers are needed for daily care of cats and kittens. Duties include: feeding, cleaning litter boxes and cages, changing and washing bedding from cages and overall general cleaning such as sweeping and mopping. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age. Training is held the first Tuesday evening of the month.
