You Can Make a Difference

We have a variety of ways you can make a difference both directly and indirectly with money and with time as a volunteer or foster home.

Donate Cash

We are desperately in need of donations if The Cat House is to survive.

It costs us $1 per day to feed and provide for a cat, and with over 700 residents, we need all the help we can get!

Please give whatever you can, and rest asssured that your donation is being used to help the animals (we're a thrifty lot!). All donations are tax-deductible under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and receipts are available upon request. Tax ID: 27-0015288.

Make a Memorial or Tribute Donation

You may make a tribute donation in honor of, or in memory of, a person or pet. We will send an acknowledgement card to the person you choose and will display the tribute on our Memorial or Tribute page.

Sponsor a Cat or Dog

We know that some of our cats, for whatever reasons — old age, trauma, or medical problems — will never be adopted and will spend their lives here. We cherish these kitties and always want to be able to provide the best for them. We promised them that they would never again have to worry about having enough food to eat, a warm bed in which to snuggle, or a caring human to give them lots of love and to take care of their health.

We also realize that some of you may not be able to adopt one of our cats but would like to be , able to help them out. That's why we have the SPONSOR-A-CAT program. You can become a sponsor for just $15 a month. Your donation helps pay for the basic needs of each cat during his/her stay with us. You can see your sponsored cat's story and latest picture via the Sponsor Check-in form on the right side of this page. You are also welcome (and encouraged!) to visit us and "your" cat as often as you can. The cats do remember frequent visitors, and enjoy the individual love and attention their sponsors provide.

To sponsor a cat or dog, please choose one of them from the Sponsors Needed section on the right, click on the Sponsor link and then fill out the simple online form or email us if you want to sponsor a cat or dog who is not currently listed.

Donate items from our Wish List

We have set up wishlists for important things we need at both Amazon and Chewy. You can buy from them and have the items shipped directly to us.

When you send us something via Amazon, Chewy or Walmart, please forward your order confirmation e-mail from them to so we can send you a "Thank you" and donation receipt for your taxes. Otherwise we don't know who to thank because the packages do not provide us with any way to contact whoever had them sent.

We can always use donations of:

  1. Bleach
  2. Paper towels
  3. Canned cat and kitten food
  4. Scoopable litter
  5. Postage stamps
  6. Cat beds
  7. Puppy pads
  8. Pine cleaner

Shop to Give

When you shop at one of our Shop to Give partners or through one of the ads which appear on this website, we receive either a a donation as a percentage of your purchase or referral fee. The more you buy, the more you help the cats!

Our biggest Shop to Give partner is AmazonSmile. When you shop at Amazon via AmazonSmile with us as your designated charity, 0.5% of the order total is donated to us. This is for any shopping you do, not just things you send us from our wishlist.

Donate through eBay Giving Works

eBay Giving Works enables both sellers and buyers to support The Cat House on the Kings! If you sell on eBay, you can specify that a portion of the proceeds of your sale will be donated to us. If you shop on eBay, purchase from sellers who have indicated that they support us through eBay Giving Works. Click on the Giving Works button to the right for more information.

Donate Stock

There are several tax advantages to making a charitable gift of appreciated securities. You may hold appreciated stock and don't intend to sell it primarily because of the substantial capital gains tax due when an individual sells the stock.

As an example, if you bought stock for $1,000 several years ago and it is now worth $20,000. If you sold the $20,000 stock, you would pay capital gains tax on the $19,000 gain in value. However if you donate the stock you avoid paying capital gains tax and the full fair market value of stock qualifies for a charitable income tax deduction as permitted by law.

When the charity sells the stock, there is no capital gains tax due and the charity receives the full $20,000.
