Financial Donations

CATS Cradle Shelter is a 501©3 Non-profit organization that receives no city, state, or federal funds. We rely solely on private donations, fundraising events, and adoption fees to continue our rescue mission. These funds help cover the cost of food, litter, spay/neuter, medical supplies, and veterinary expenses and more. The generosity of supporters like you goes a very long way in helping CATS Cradle Shelter cover our day to day expenses and we are extremely grateful for every gift regardless of the frequency or size, and because we are 501©3 your donations are tax deductible.

Please consider helping us continue to rescue, rehabilitate and find loving forever homes. We accept donations in person, by mail or via PayPal. You can submit a one-time gift or set up a recurring donation! If you are making the donation on behalf of a loved one or pet please let us know in the notes with your gift.

Checks can be mailed to:
Cats Cradle Shelter

Fargo, ND 58103

12 X 12 Medical Fund

Our 12 X 12 medical fund helps CATS Cradle Shelter provide extra medical services to very sick or injured cats that would likely be euthanized because of their condition if they were not in our care. These funds cover diagnostics, surgeries and treatments for illnesses that are above and beyond our general intake medical procedures.

Corky’s Angels

The average length of stay at the shelter is around 3 months, but some of our cats need extra time to find their forever families…maybe because they are shy, don’t show well, or simply because the right people haven’t walked through our doors yet. Corky’s Angels are donors who contribute to the monthly expenses of one of our long-term residents. Donors may choose a cat to support, or we will pick one. Sponsoring these tenured shelter cats is a great way to help the shelter and that specific cat. You can also choose to make a one-time donation (using the link above) to subsidize the adoption fee for one of our cats. Just type “Subsidize [cat’s name’s] adoption” in the comment section.
