About Us

Every cat deserves a loving home.

Our mission at Confluence Cat Rescue (CCR) is is simple - the prevention of cruelty to animals. How we go about it, though, is a bit more complicated. Specifically, CCR promotes safe feline adoption and fostering, spreads awareness of the importance of spaying and neutering pets, and it promotes public education regarding responsible pet ownership. Working with first responders, vets, and other qualified rescues during emergencies and sudden life events helps owners to keep their pets rather than surrendering them to shelters. Confluence Cat Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. 

A dedicated core of volunteers.
