Furbabies In Need Are Added Often

Pledge campaigns close when the target goal and/or deadline date is reached. Please check back to see how your furbaby's pledges are progressing. (especially if death row cats or kittens)

The Duncan Home For Wayward Cats is a private endeavor devoted to the welfare of homeless Henderson, Texas cats, and orphaned kittens. We are not a rescue nor a 501 (c)(3) non-profit. We merely provide a safe, healthy, and enriched environment for hapless Henderson cats and kittens while seeking to find forever homes for them because we care.ย 

Read our origin story and view photos here.ย 

We seem to end up with lots of hapless furbabies at the Duncan Home For Wayward Cats.ย 

Maybe we need to learn to say, “No?” ๐Ÿ™‚ย 

The cost of caring for them and getting them healthy and ready for adoption may not be apparent to some, but substantial costs are incurred for every cat or kitten that is taken in and that is why we must continually request your support. It is also why we have an intake fee for new cats and kittens.

If you own a pet and take proper care of them, then you already understand the costs of pet ownership, now multiply those costs times 60+ cats to understand our position.

If you don't own a pet and have no experience with the cost of their care, then this is an opportunity to learn about that aspect of pet ownership as you browse through the profiles of those needing your donations.

This is also an opportunity to understand the costs incurred by others (shelters, rescues, good samaritans, etc.) who endeavor to help homeless, abandoned, and orphaned kittens often due to irresponsible pet ownership.

We know all too well about good-heartedness compelling you to want to help a cat or kitten in need that may not even belong to you and we want to help you help them. We'd help them all if we could, but without your support, we cannot afford to.

Our $100 intake fee is less than half of the cost of properly caring for a cat or kitten to prepare it for adoption.ย  We want to be your partner in your action as a good samaritan, but we need you to be our partner in making it possible.

If you can provide the $100 donation outright per cat or kitten, then we can take them right away provided we have space.

However, if you cannot afford the $100 intake fee, then read the next section about how we can help you raise that fee so we can help the cat or kitten you care about as quickly as possible.

If you need to surrender one or more cats or kittens and cannot afford our $100 intake fee per cat, we can still help you and them – with a little effort on your part.

If you want them to have the best possible life, but cannot keep them and cannot find someone to adopt them from you, then send us a few good photos of them and a brief paragraph telling their story about how they came into your life and why the cat or kitten(s) need help.

When you send us the photos and their story, then we will list them here as needing help and indicate that they are pending enrollment at the Duncan Home For Wayward Cats and will be admitted when their campaign reaches $100.

You can then direct your family and friends to the furbaby's page to donate $5, $10, $15, or more until the $100 fee or more is raised. As soon as it is, then your baby can be enrolled at the Duncan Home For Wayward Cats where they will begin living their best life.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚ย 


ย 

It is also relatively easy to launch a Facebook Personal Fundraiser or a GoFundMe page and ask friends and family to help you get the cat you care about enrolled in the Duncan Home For Wayward Cats.

Generous animal lovers have supported a number of our general and community campaigns for the benefit of Henderson, Texas cats and we now provide an opportunity for those who care to donate to a particular furbaby's needs.

For example, some cats like Josh have significant needs that cost far more than normal care and can quickly deplete our general fund that is required to support all the others while they await their forever homes.ย 

The costs that are typically incurred per cat or kitten are listed on each contribution page and you can decide how much you want to contribute toward one or more furbabies.

In addition to general donations, you can now make donations to benefit particular furbabies.

In addition to your generous donation of any amount, the furbabies also greatly appreciate you sharing their page with your family and friends and asking them to also contribute to their health and well-being.ย  You will find that when you tell your family and friends that you care about a particular furbaby and ask them to donate (and share the link), then they will also care because you care and will very likely donate to help you, help them.

Some campaigns are Pledge Campaigns and those accept your pledge, but your contribution is not processed until the campaign goal is reached. If the goal is not reached then your pledge is not processed.

PLEDGE CAMPAIGNS MAY BE VERY TIME-SENSITIVE to save the lives of cats in need of emergency medical care or death row cats and kittens held in shelters and scheduled to be euthanized on a particular date. We generally work with rescues on these last-minute endeavors to save lives.ย 

For example, many times a shelter that has animals scheduled for euthanization will only release them provided enough pledges are received by a particular date for the particular cat or kittens. If the campaign goal is not reached, then they are euthanized and that campaign fails and no pledges are processed.

    A Box of Dirt For June

    Cats don't ask for much from humans โ€” until after we spoil themย ๐Ÿ™‚ย โ€“, but at minimum, indoor cats do need a box of dirt (a litter box) and a bag of food.

    Can you help us by contributing a box of dirt and/or a bag of food for theย Duncan Home For Wayward Cats?

    Walmart has one of the least expensive clumping clay litters at aboutย $12 for 40 pounds.

    A Bag Of Food for June

    Cats don't ask for much from humans — until after we spoil them ๐Ÿ™‚ –, but at minimum, indoor cats do need a box of dirt and a bag of food.ย 

    A high-quality dry food like Purina Pro Plan runs about $27 for 7 pounds for one cat for one month.

    Or you can give just $5 a month to the furbabies and make a huge difference by doing so.

    Please help feed the hungry kitties. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Baby Girl

    Baby Girl weighed in at 350 grams when she was retrieved from under a car by a store employee and then placed in the flooded walk-in cooler at the business.

    Another employee contacted us at 9:30 PM to say that unless someone could take the kitten by 10:00 PM when the business closed, the kitten was going to be put outside at the busy highway intersection.

    The employee who called was unable to pickup the kitten because they were out of town, but had been told of the circumstances.

    Your contributions will help cover the estimated $207 in costs anticipated to be incurred by The Duncan Home For Wayward Cats to get Baby Girl ready for adoption in a few months.

    Full breakdown of cost details in the description section.

    Please give what you can and encourage others to give what they can to help provide for this little one's needs until a forever home can be found for her.
