What is a Desperate Housecat?

Desperate Housecats are cats that are often overlooked in the shelter. In order to be classified as a Desperate Housecat they have to 7 years old or older, have been in the shelter system over 60 days or have a physical issue such as FIV, glaucoma or food allergies. 

Many of these cats have a very hard time with life in the shelter.  They are quickly overwhelmed.  These cats usually end up in a foster home where they can receive more attention and relax.

The Desperate Housecat program was created and is run by volunteers/fosters to help these cats find their forever homes.
