Love and Purrs Sanctuary is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization
dedicated to caring for at risk cats and kittens. Founder and
President Kimberley Dolan is the operator and visionary of Love
and Purrs Sanctuary.
Over 95% of our cats and kittens come from the streets! They are the
forgotten, abused and neglected. We believe human contact and
companionship is needed to foster security and trust with these
forgotten second chance kitties.
We truly take the time to understand a cats needs and personality. Our
furry feline friends have all the love and care they desire here. All of our
cats and kittens live in a fully free roaming environment with us. With
catios and cat towers galore, every cat and kitten can find a perfect spot
We are not a foster based “rescue” and the majority of the cats and
kittens live with us until they find their special person that wants to adopt
them. We are a “sanctuary” because unlike a “rescue”, cats
and kittens can stay with us for as long as they need to before
they are adopted. For some that has been years and that is
okay with us.
Love and Purrs Sanctuary was founded in the Nashville, Tennessee
area. Because of the amazing support of those who love cats, we
rapidly outgrew our facility and needed to expand. We found a great
facility and a large need for a Love and Purrs in Clyde, North Carolina.
We are happily settling in and excited to add Love and Purrs Sanctuary
to Haywood County's efforts to save cats, one purr at a time! Be sure to
look for adoptable pets from us now in both the Middle Tennessee and
Western North Carolina areas!
Cats, kittens and supporters say: Love and Purrs Sanctuary is fur-everly
purr-fectly paw-some! Thank you all so much for your continued
