Every pet deserves a safe place to call home, and the Cat House on the Kings in Parlier aims to do just that. The Cat House on the Kings is California’s largest no-cage, no-kill, lifetime cat sanctuary and adoption center. Its mission is to place rescued cats and kittens into loving, permanent homes; to provide a safe, happy and healthy home for unwanted cats and kittens in a unique, no-cage facility; to prevent pet overpopulation through spaying and neutering; and to educate the public about responsible pet ownership. “We offer a perfect setting for animals that would otherwise be put down in other shelters,” says Lynea Lattanzio, who founded and runs The Cat House on the Kings. “We are known as a sanctuary.” They have rescued cats from all over the world, including Sri Lanka, Saudi Arabia and Puerto Rico.
The Cat House is a nonprofit corporation, receives no government or public funding and relies entirely on donations from the public to carry out its mission. Since its founding almost 26 years ago, the Cat House on the Kings has saved more than 30,000 cats and 7,100 dogs, spayed and neutered 56,000 animals, and currently cares for more than 700 cats and kittens, a dozen or so dogs and dozens of peacocks.
One way to get involved with the Cat House on the Kings is to adopt a cat or dog. If you’re not ready to adopt, you can foster or sponsor a cat or dog. You can also donate funds or items, volunteer or shop. The Cat House’s online shop includes T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, beanies, bags, books and more.
