We are honored our very own Founder / Director - Lana Bajsel was featured on Souls of Society. Our Give Me Shelter team and ALL the cats that have been saved THANK YOU for starting this organization in 2003 that has saved countless lives!

Inspired by our Power of One Fundraiser, YouCaring featured our fund raising efforts on their blog and did an amazing video to help us raise much needed funds for the life saving work we do.

Thank you to Youcaring.com for putting together a wonderful video to help us raise funds for our beautiful girl Leila and sharing the work that we do at Give Me Shelter Cat Rescue. Watch the video on their Facebook page.

We are saddened to tell you Leila has since passed. Please read our tribute to her life here on our Facebook page. Unfortunately, we were not able to save Leila, but she was loved in her fospice home until she crossed the Rainbow Bridge. While Leila is no longer with us we save many precious lives. Please help us continue to save lives and contribute to their care. Thank you for your continued support!
