♥ What Makes Us Special ♥
For over 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. The Hermitage is a cage-free facility where the cats are able to roam throughout their designated areas (including catios) and interact freely with staff, visitors and volunteers. There are specialty rooms that provide indoor and enclosed catios for cats with FIV, FeLV, and Diabetes. Our Senior cats have a separate room and catio, as well. We are both an adoption facility and long-term sanctuary.
With the addition of our medical suite, The Hermitage can provide state-of-the-art care for our cats including spay/neuter surgeries; dental procedures; laser treatments to assist in recovery; and more. Every cat is given a full exam every six months, allowing us to take a preventative approach to their care. Our in-house X-ray equipment allows us to diagnose many conditions without costly visits to outside veterinarians. Our ability to now provide this comprehensive care greatly reduces the stress on the cats and improves their overall well-being.
♥ Our Mission Statement ♥
Advocating for animal rights and ending needless euthanasia of at-risk felines through protection, adoption, and 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.
