Where others close their eyes, you open your arms.

When others turn away, you turn towards the little ones gazing at you with hopeful eyes.

For eighteen years, you’ve made Tabby’s Place the beating heart of love for cats who no one else wants. From all over the world, lonely cats journey here to be cherished. 

But there’s a group of cats still dreaming: cats infected with the feline leukemia virus (FeLV).

Infected with a poorly understood, difficult to predict disease, these beautiful cats have almost nowhere to turn. Very few shelters in the world can accommodate FeLV+ cats, and most of these cats are tragically euthanized upon diagnosis.

While Tabby’s Place is the world’s trusted haven for cats no one else can help, we haven’t had the accommodations to properly care for these precious cats…until now.

They will be loved at last…but not without you.

their lives are precious

a letter from Jonathan Rosenberg

In eighteen years of Tabby’s Place history, it has been gratifying to work with you to give the neediest cats not only a life, but a future filled with love.

But, over the years, we have been unable to help cats from the most hopeless situation: infection with the feline leukemia virus, FeLV.

This limitation has been heartbreaking, but not surprising. FeLV is a confusing condition that is challenging to manage. The more we study the disease, the less we seem to understand:

  • Some cats succumb to the disease in months, while others live a normal lifespan.
  • The virus can be transmitted via casual contact, which means proper housing is crucial.
  • It appears some cats can eliminate the virus after infection, while others become persistently infected. Yet others remain in limbo: not infected, but not uninfected.
  • Caring properly for FeLV+ cats requires flexible space, easily reconfigurable to accommodate changing situations. This has made it infeasible for us to save these exceptionally needy cats, becoming a source of heartache at the sanctuary for cats from “hopeless situations.”

But that is about to be ancient history.  Thanks to one extraordinary gift, we are beginning a significant expansion that will provide the quantity and type of space required for these most desperate cats: Quinn’s Corner.

For 18 years, helping FeLV+ cats was just a dream. Now, it’s about to come true. I hope you’ll join me in welcoming the cats who need us most.
