Boarding for Cats and Kittens!

Mitten's Motel has been a 'Home Away From Home' experience for many cats while their owners are vacationing.  We are a family owned business, and opened in May 2010.

Here at Mitten's Motel, we believe every cat is a cherished member of the family. We cater to every cat or kittens' specific needs with compassion and understanding. In the past, we have had to make heart wrenching decisions; putting cats up for adoption or placing them in shelters, when they have been abandoned by their owners. We would love to keep them all, but unfortunately due to rising living costs, they end up costing us more than we can spare. Most shelters in our area are over ran with surrendered cats and many are euthanized.  We ALWAYS do EVERYTHING in our power to find these cats loving homes, but sadly this is not always possible.  Our philosophy is that every cat or kitten deserves a second chance at life in a loving, and caring 'forever home'. 

This is why we have also decided to help out our local shelter by fostering 1-2 adult cats until they are able to go back to the shelter and be put up for adoption. In this busy time of year, the shelter also has A LOT of abandoned kittens and pregnant mothers. These precious kittens need their chance at a loving responisble home.  Many of these kitten's are still being bottle fed.

We would like to use the money we raise for food donations for these cats only. The shelter has a limited amount of funds and we usually pay for their food ourselves. Please help us provide continued care and the opportunity to foster some cats and kitten's from the shelter by making a donation today.

Together we can all make a difference!

Sincerely, 

Brandy Slack, Denise Struzan, and Stacey Searcy.
-Mittens Motel owners and staff.

Donations of cat food, gently used cat beds, toys, and blankets are greatly appreciated and always more than welcome! 

Thank you again for your support. Anything helps!

We haven't done much with our Go Fund Me page in a while, so we have decided that our Go Fund Me page will now go directly to buying food for Multnomah County Animal Shelter foster cats & Kitten's. As we foster, cats will stay with us until they are able to go back to the shelter and be put up for adoption. Donations will help by providing much needed food (some cats need a specialty diet or grain free diet food. The shelter, of course, have limited funds for food. They give food donations to their fosters that they have received when they are able to. Which means, many fosters are paying for food with their own money.

Please share our page and help us raise money for food.

Thank you for your continued support,
Mitten's Motel

I have not had to board my cat at Mitten's but you guys did an amazing thing when you took in a litter of practically newborn kittens that I rescued from the yard of a tire shop where the mom didn't return to care for them. Prior to getting in touch with Brandy I had made countless calls trying to place these kittens with someone qualified to take care of them and was met with dead ends. Brandy agreed immediately to take them off my hands and care for them. I admire and respect the work that you do and the dedication. Taking care of the kittens for the few days I had them in my home was no easy task. It's hard work but you guys are willing to do it. Kudos to you and I wish you luck with your projects and expansion.
