A Home for Life

The home for life goal is to provide resources to keep cats and kittens in their homes for life and out of the shelter including community cats.  We have resources to help you provide a home for life.

Human Education and Surrender Intervention

While our goal is to get as many pets into homes as possible, we want to keep them there for the remainder of the pets’ lives. Because of this, we have resources to help cat guardians resolve the most common behavior and medical issues.

Our surrender prevention counselors are available to meet with to discuss your cat’s problem behavior.  Our volunteers are knowledgeable and are able to redirect your cat’s problem behavior. We offer this service free of charge. Sometimes just very small changes in your home modifies your cat’s behavior to become the same cat you fell in love with as a kitten!

If anything happened to you, what would happen to me?

Thousands of companion animals are surrendered to animal shelters and euthanized every year when their pet owners die or become too ill to care for them.  Have you made arrangements to ensure the lifetime care of your pets?

Bringing Low Cost Spay/Neuter Resources To Underserved Neighborhoods

88% of pets in the United States are living in underserved communities are not spayed or neutered.
20 MILLION pets in the United States are living with their families in poverty.


These are disheartening statistics and are occurring not because they are unloved, but because these families lack financial resources for veterinary care or it is nonexistent in their community.

Small Lives Matter Kitten Rescue is working with committed partners in the underserved counties nearby. Funding for our first free spay and neuter pop-up clinic will be announced with date and location in 2020.  Donations for this specific cause will be used to connect people and pets to veterinary services and keep them living happy, healthy lives together for life.
