NEADY Cats is a small, no-kill cat shelter located on the National Training Campus of NEADS in Princeton, MA. NEADS is the oldest national assistance dog program in the US, opened in 1976. The cat shelter was started in 1987 to help homeless cats by giving them good veterinary care and then placing them in loving homes. The cats “earned their keep” by teaching the dogs to mind their manners when they were around cats.
It is the mission of NEADY Cats to place adoptable cats and kittens in loving “forever” homes, promote spaying and neutering, and provide feline health care education to the public.
We have enjoyed a high success rate in our cat placements. We take pride in careful screening of prospective adoptive families. We familiarize ourselves with each cat’s personality and decide what will be the best environment for a lifetime placement. Very few cats have been returned.
Our goal is to place 80 to 100 cats a year, and we have no plans to expand the shelter. In 1987 we had 8 used cages and a dream of saving a few homeless cats. Today in our new quarters on the NEADS campus, our dream is a reality. To date we have placed more than 1752 NEADY Cats.
NEADS furnishes us our space rent-free, but we depend on your donations and volunteer labor to provide food, litter, maintenance, and medical care. See "How You Can Help Us" for ways in which you may make monetary donations or donations of your time in helping to care for our cats. In February 2000 we became a non-profit corporation. Your donations are tax-deductible.
