Adoptions in 2016!

Thanks PETCO!

Happy Jack Cats,  Inc., is a proud recipient of funding
from the Petco Foundation

in 2016 & 2017.

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

Our Mission: 
"To save all the healthy and treatable kittens under our care and for every kitten
to have a chance to live, grow and thrive.""

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.

What We Do
Rescue. Adopt. Everybody wins.

  • 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.

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
