Welcome to The Cat House on the Kings

Our Mission

The Cat House on the Kings is California's largest no-cage, no-kill, lifetime cat sanctuary and adoption center. Our mission is to place rescued cats and kittens into loving, permanent homes; to provide a safe, happy and healthy home for unwanted cats and kittens in a unique, no-cage facility; to prevent pet overpopulation through spaying and neutering; and to educate the public about responsible pet ownership.

In a Nutshell

Lynea Lattanzio, who founded and runs The Cat House on the Kings, talks about how it came about and gives you a peek into our unique environment in these videos by Jack Perez and Chris Poole:

The Cat House is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, receives no government or public funding, and relies entirely on donations from the public to carry out its mission.

Since its founding 32 years ago, The Cat House on the Kings has saved an estimated 52,311 cats and 7,900 dogs, not counting the 90,000 animals (est.) we have spayed & neutered! We currently care for more than 700 cats and kittens, a dozen or so dogs and dozens of peacocks.
