WE HAVE MOVED – temporarily!
We have temporarily relocated so our building renovations can begin. Our 5278 E 21st St location will be closed to the public as of August 25, 2016. Our temporary new home is located at 4501 E 22nd St (between Alvernon & Swan). This location will open to volunteers and guests on September 6, 2016.

 

What Makes Us Special

For 50 years, The Hermitage has been 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.

No-Kill Philosophy

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.
