Welcome to Happy Jack Cats, Inc.'s Official Website!

Our Mission: 
"To save all the healthy and treatable kittens under our care"

This site is for those of you who are full-fledged, card-carrying, crazy cat people; those who are one cat short of crazy; those who have learned that cats are like potato chips, so you can't have just one; and the poor lost souls who don't have a cat.

Who We Are

Happy Jack Cats, Inc. (HJC), is an Idaho Non-Profit Corporation and 501(c)3. We are a foster-based,
no-kill rescue  and adoption group. It is our mission to save all the healthy and treatable kittens in our care.

HJC, was founded in October/November 2015 by individuals concerned for the welfare of "throw away" kittens and cats in the Treasure Valley, as well as the significant feline over population problems in Idaho communities. 

HJC has a working Board of Directors of three members plus numerous volunteers. We have no employees, but we do have a strong foster parent program made up of volunteers throughout the area. These dedicated people shelter animals in their homes, providing kindness, care and socilization. To date we have no physical location, but look forward to having one in the future, when funds allow.

Our funds come from grants, donations, fundraising campaigns, and re-homing fees. HJC has a relationship with two Petco Stores in the area, where we can showcase our animals, and we are gratelful
to the personel at Petco for their continued support. Thanks Petco.

What We Do

  • We provide clean, healthy, and loving environments, food, shelter, and temporary housing in foster homes for abused, stray, orphaned or abandoned kittens until their adoptions. Animals are housed in cages only for special purposes: quarantine, injury care, other special needs, and display at Petco stores. 
  • We promote public health and safety by encouraging vaccinations,  including rabies.
  • We educate the community about animal welfare issues.
  • We find homes for cats and kittens in order to reduce the need for euthanasia. 
  • We promote the spay and neuter of pet cats and kittens.

  • We are a no-kill shelter/rescue. We do not euthanize to free up space.

  • We applaud and support the efforts of other shelters and rescues.

Dr. Elsey's has supported Happy Jack Cats, Inc. with donations of their cat litter for some time now.  Their litters are quality products, and we  recommend them to our friends and adopters. My grandaughter describes Dr. Elsey's litter as the BOMB! She's right. It really is good and cats love it.

Happy Jack Cats has been accepted to the No More Homeless Pets network program by the Best Friends Animal Society (www.Best of Kanab, Utah. Happy Jack is honored to partner with Best Friends to help "Save Them All."
"At the core of Best Friends' work is the dream that one day animals will no longer be killed in America's shelters. By implementing spay/neuter and trap-neuter-return (TNR) programs to reduce the number of animals who enter shelters, and increasing the number of people who adopt pets, we know we can end the killing. We know we can Save Them All."  ~ Best Friends
