As a one-of-a-kind cat sanctuary, Tabby’s Place is:
An Adoption Center, finding loving homes for cats. Most of our residents will go on to be adored in forever homes of their own. But, any cats who are not adopted find a home for life at the sanctuary.
A Hospital, providing first-rate medical care for every one of our cats. When a homeless feline becomes a Tabby’s Place cat, she can count on having her needs fully met. Cost is never a consideration in caring for our cats, and we will do everything in our power to give each cat we rescue the happiest, healthiest and longest life possible.
A Hospice, nurturing chronically and terminally ill cats in a warm, loving environment. For some of our residents, Tabby’s Place will be their forever home, where they can live out their lives in dignity and comfort.
Most Tabby’s Place cats come from crowded public shelters where they were once scheduled for euthanasia. From healthy kittens to frail seniors, these courageous and cherished cats find a true haven at Tabby’s Place.
Thank you for helping us to save and love the neediest cats. Good luck landing your purrfect prize in the auction.
You can visit the Tabby's Place cats seven days a week from Noon - 5:00 pm at 1100 US Highway 202 South, Ringoes, NJ, 08551. Or, visit the kitties online by clicking here. If you have any questions, please feel free to call [masked]) or e-mail us any time.
