Meows for Military

The Hermitage’s Meows for Military is a program for veterans at the Southern Arizona VA Healthcare System in the Community Living Center. Each week our outreach coordinator and a feline ambassador visit our proud veterans and provide supportive therapy to help heal their wounds and lift their spirits.

Snuggles for Seniors

For seniors, interacting with a pet can be life altering. Feelings of loneliness or isolation can melt away with a simple stroke and purring response. The physical and mental health benefits of interacting with a furry companion can be many-from reduced blood pressure to elevated serotonin levels.

Snuggles for Seniors takes place at multiple retirement homes located in Tucson several times a month. For more information, email our Community Outreach Coordinator, Ashley at [email protected] or call (520) 571-7839.

Kids’ Club

The Hermitage hosts a 2-hour club the first Saturday of each month (September thru May) for children ages 6-12. Join us for a craft, educational presentation, snack, and KITTY CUDDLES!! Parents are free to stay or drop off. The registration fee for the club is $20 (sibling discounts available.)

For more information, email our Community Outreach Coordinator, Ashley at [email protected] or call (520) 571-7839.

Read to a Cat

The Hermitage No Kill Cat Shelter has partnered with Literacy Connect to establish our children’s literacy program. All kids of any age are welcome to drop in during the summer and read to a cat! At the end of their visit they are welcome to take a book home and continue to read throughout the summer. All kids are welcomed from Tuesday – Saturday 10am – 4:30 pm.
