What Makes Us Special
The Hermitage No-Kill Shelter just celebrated its 48th birthday!
We are dedicated to the shelter, protection, and care of homeless cats, especially those that are often not considered adoptable by other organizations. We are both an adoption facility and long-term sanctuary.
At the Hermitage, we adhere to the principle of “no-kill” in that no cat in our care will ever be euthanized to make room for another, nor will any cat in our care ever be destroyed except in cases of terminal and painful illness or when compassion demands it because there is no reasonable alternative.
