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

"To give every healthy kitten a chance to live, grow, and thrive in a forever home."

​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.


Kegs 4 Kause is a unique event created by Payette Brewing, Co. as a means to give back the community. They love to feature those that work hard to make an impact in our community, and donate to their unique efforts in making Idaho a better place. That's where Happy Jack Cats, Inc.
comes in.

Monday evening, January 22; 5 PM to 10 PM, 50% of proceeds from beer sales in the Tap Room will be donated to Happy Jack Cats, Inc. Happy Jack invites all of our friends and family to come and help promote our night in the community.

Who Is Happy Jack Cats, Inc.?

Happy Jack Cats, Inc., is an Idaho Non-Profit Corporation. We are a foster-based, no-kill rescue  and

Happy Jack Cats, Inc., (HJC) was founded in October/November 2015 by individuals concerned for the welfare of "throw away" kittens and cats in the Treasure Valley.  HJC has no employees, but has a strong foster program made up of volunteers in homes throughout the area. Our funds come from grants,
donations, crowd funding campaigns, and re-homing fees. All of our kittens are in foster homes throughout the area, and, at this time, we have no storefront location, but look forward to having one in the future.

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,  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.

Feline Stomatitis

Feline stomatitis is a severe, painful inflammation of a cat's mouth and gums. In most cases, the condition causes ulcers to form in the mouth; these ulcers can involve the lips, tongue, gums, and back of the throat. Cats of any age or breed can be affected.
