My neighbor had a beautiful and loving starving kitten dropped off on her front door. She can't keep this cat, because she can't afford to feed it. She has been layed off from her job and has 3 children. My daughter sends through PayPal money for Westside cats. She said she would gladly send 10$a month at least to help take care of this baby. The neighbor does not want this kitten to get hit by a car or for something bad to happen to it. I myself already have 2 female cats and he's a male unneutered. Can you please help? My phone # is 330719-7937.please this kitten is probably 3 months and very loving. I can't keep helping her. Thankyou for reading this Sincerely Lisa Wolgang

My Daughter and I have volunteered here since March of 2013, I spend ALOT of time working with the people and the animals, more than 20 hours a week. I find the reviews I've read to be vindictive ! I have witnessed first hand being threatened by an ex volunteer who was asked to return the cat they adopted as reports from neighbors and a home visit found things not up to our standards. I also witnessed someone get upset over being denied an adoption as they wanted to place a 2 month old kitten outside to live.. I guess if you didn't have the best interest of the cat or kitten in mind you would find the staff unfriendly because everyone I volunteer with LOVES the animals !

I've adopted two beautiful cats from West Side Cats. I've been in there many times to donate. I have NEVER seen the things the people below are saying. OMG, this place is AWSOME! It's clean, there were two ladies on their hands and knees scrubbing floors by hand! The cats are very well fed and cared for. The vet that they use is MY vet as well...and I love them dearly. Stop by and visit this shelter and see for yourself how wonderful West Side Cats is! I would ALWAYS recommend!

My experience is endless and ongoing. I spend six days a week here working as hard as I can within my physical limits. So do all of the other dedicated volunteers.We take in the cats and kittens that every other shelter rejects, we rehabilitate them, spay/neuter them, love them, and find them homes. Our volunteers kill themselves making sure the shelter is clean, the cats are fed & watered and receive proper vet care.

My wife and I strongly support WSC for their fine efforts caring for so many lost, neglected and abandoned cats. Everyone there takes great care and gives enormous love to all of the little critters in their charge. They all do a wonderful job.

We Love it here ! We are Volunteers, it can be hard work but very satisfying. We clean, fund raise, donate, foster, and have adopted. I'd tell my friend... you need some kitties :) or come on down and help out, we can always use more volunteers!!
Tips & Advices
Most city and county shelters offer affordable spay/neuter services. SPCA and Humane Society shelters also are known for their low-cost spay/neuter programs.
Shelters typically offer spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchipping and some essential medical treatment (deworming, mange treatment) to animals being adopted from the shelter. For other veterinary services, you will need to find a vet.
No-kill and low-kill shelters will state it in their online profile and other official materials. They will usually explain what their process/policy is for looking after the animals in their care. These are also known as “limited admission” shelters because they are usually at full capacity most or all of the time. Also, they often work with rescue organizations or county Animal Services authorities to accommodate animals living in inhumane conditions, abandoned or injured animals.
Anyone can bring a lost animal to a county or municipal shelter. However, private shelters affiliated with rescues often will not accept animals, whether lost or surrendered by owners. Shelters with low-kill policies often have a limited admission capability.
Adopting an adult dog from a county or city shelter usually costs $75-$100. Young adult purebreds and puppies often have a higher adoption fee.  The fee to adopt a cat is usually about $50– sometimes with discounts if one new owner adopts two cats. The adoption fee usually covers the cost of spay/neuter surgery and essential vaccinations.
