We are hoping for a miracle

If we were to acquire land in Ada County for a sanctuary for unwanted cats, it would be the miracle we need. This cannot happen without the donation of land and/or funds from a patron(s). We know asking for this is a long-shot, but the need is huge, and we are not able to make this happen without help, so we are going public with this appeal. Please keep us in mind.

Who Is Happy Jack Cats?

Happy Jack Cats, Inc., is an Idaho Non-Profit Corporation. We are a foster-based, rescue and adoption group based in Meridian, ID. but serving Meridian, Boise, and outlying communities. We were founded in 2015 by individuals concerned for the welfare of "throwaway" kittens. We house all of our animals in foster homes throughout the area, excepting those showcased in two Petco stores: 3006 W. State St., Eagle, ID. and 3548 S. Findley Ave, Boise.  At this time (10/19/2018), we have no storefront location but look forward to having one in the future. For now, all of our kittens are in foster homes.

We save all the healthy and treatable kittens and cats under our care, with euthanasia reserved only for untreatable animals.

Happy Jack Cats, Inc., is an exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal
Revenue Code, EIN #47-5455805.

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 and cats until their adoptions. Felines 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 strongly support and promote spay or neuter.
  • We are a no-kill rescue, and DO NOT euthanize to free up space.
  • We applaud and support the efforts of other shelters and rescues.
  • We proudly partner with Petco and The Petco Foundation.

What We Don't Do

We are not licensed or practicing veterinarians. All opinions are our own and obtained through our own experience. We encourage you to seek out and speak with professional veterinarians about anything you are concerned about! A lot of the information that we know about is from speaking to professionals and we would be nowhere without them!
