The Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary helps blind cats see a future.
A non profit started in 2005, the Blind Cat Rescue is a life time care animal rescue & sanctuary located in St Pauls, NC, started in order to answer the need for a safe place for blind cats that were deemed unadoptable by regular shelters and were going to be killed just because they were blind. In 2011, we built a second shelter to answer the need for a safe place for FEL+ & FIV+ cats that were going to be killed just because they test positive for these viruses.
Rescue isn't glamorous. It's about comforting the scared cat whose owners abandoned him at the shelter after living together for 10 years, it's about holding a young animal's head as they take their last breath when it has been determined that their previous owners abused them so badly that they can't be saved. It's about restoring hope and dignity to creatures for whom no one else cares about. We are but humble vessels to help these magnificent creatures find their forever homes. You cannot place a value on the look of contentment that comes when an animal is clean, exercised, warm, fed and safe for the first time in its life.
