Our resident felines arrive from near and far. Some are born locally,
others hail from as far away as New Mexico or Florida. They are referred

and support our cause.
A day in the life...
In the sanctuary, we currently house about 100 cats in two main catteries.
The catteries are spacious open areas with skylights, huge windows, heated
floors, piped soothing music and outdoor runs. They are filled with climbing
trees, toys and beds of our own special design.

We also have a special, separate cattery for another 25 cats that
test positive for feline leukemia. No cat at Home For Life®

Read more about our feline leukemia refuge, the Porsche
and Mercedes Steffens Oasis for Feline Leukemia Cats. Meet more leukemia-positive
cats on our Feline Leukemia page.
