Why Run for Cats?

We need your assistance now more than ever to help keep cats in homes with their families. Please consider running or donating to support our efforts.

Founded in 2003, Cat Depot's mission is to save lives, find loving homes, and provide resources and education needed to improve the destiny of homeless cats. Cat Depot, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, limited-admission, free-roaming adoption, rescue, and education center, is recognized for its progressive design and commitment to helping homeless, abandoned, and injured felines locally, regionally, and nationally.

In addition to our rescue, adoption, and education efforts, Cat Depot also assists the community through:

Community Food Bank: Cat Depot provides food for nearly 850 community cats and underserved personal pets each month. In addition, spay/neuter and trap-neuter-vaccinate-return (TNVR) services are also offered at no cost to qualifying individuals for both community cats and personally owned pets.

Cat Care Clinic: In an effort to care for sick and injured cats and their distressed owners, Cat Depot opened an affordable care clinic in November 2014. Reduced prices have helped people and their pets not only in Sarasota County but the surrounding areas. Over 4,300 cats and kittens receive treatment each year in the Cat Care Clinic. Directed contributions also provide veterinary services for qualifying cat owners.

The Fall Feline Fun Run will support the above programs. Together we can save more lives! Please donate because if everyone is able to give just a little – our work, like saving Merlin (pictured), could go so much farther. Thank you all for continuing to make kindness matter today and every day. This truly takes a village – of all of us working together to continue what we do on behalf of cats and the people who love them!
