COVID-19 Update

As the country mobilizes to fight the coronavirus pandemic, we at KVCKR are continuing to keep our kitties sheltered and fed.  We are still open by appointment only and hope that everyone is staying safe during this time.  

If you have any questions, would like to know more about the kitties we have available or to schedule an appointment, please contact Renee at

Any monetary or Amazon Wishlist donations are greatly appreciated, especially during this time.



Kiski Valley Cat & Kitten Rescue is dedicated to the prevention of cruelty and neglect towards cats by providing shelter to homeless cats until we can find them permanent homes of their own. Necessary veterinary treatment, including spaying, neutering, Distemper, and Rabies vaccinations are obtained for them. Euthanasia is not considered unless a cat is gravely ill and it needs to be done to prevent or end the cat's suffering. 

In addition, KVCKR is actively involved in trapping feral cats, getting them altered, vaccinated against Rabies and Distemper, and then returning them to a location where they will be fed and provided shelter. Also, KVCKR offers discount spay and neuter referrals, as well as advice and encouragement to anyone involved in caring for abandoned or feral cats. 

The shelter runs solely on the help of volunteers and donations.  If you would like to volunteer, please click on the link below to email Renee.  Any monetary donations can be sent to the PO Box provided at the bottom of the page or by donating on our Facebook Fundraising Page (link below).



Featured Cats

Please go to our Petfinder page to see a more complete list.  If you you do not see the kitty for you, please email us as we get new cats and kittens in often and do not always have time to update the site.


Missey is looking for a new home as her owner has passed away.  Her sister, Callie, has been adopted; now it's Missey's turn to find her new furever home.

Missey is 7 years old and is described as being very friendly and playful.

Right now, she is being fostered at a volunteer's house as it would be difficult for her at the shelter after being in a home all her life. 

For any inquiries on Missey, please contact Renee at


Petfinder Senior Pet Adoption Assistance Grant Adoption Success!

Things have now slowed down for us and it was a great time to finally adopt.  Gracie caught our eye, then found Ragtime’s story and just couldn’t believe it. Got in touch with Renee, drove up to the shelter and the rest is history!
Ragtime is such a loving cat and really coming out of her shell.  She still gets a little nervous venturing outside of her cat room, but I suspect that won’t last much longer.  She is full of life and really doesn’t act her age (in a good way 😊)!

Harvey & Sarah




All of our kitties are back at the Shelter during this pandemic.  We are still doing adoptions at the shleter by appointment only.  Please contact Renee at if you would like to set up an appointment.

Kimmy's Story

Kimmy, who has a condition called Stomatitis, had surgery to have all of her teeth pulled on September 24, 2019.  Kimmy came through her surgery like a champ!  It took almost 3 hours but now, all of her teeth were removed and her mouth should be fully healed in about 6 months.

UPDATE 5/30/20: Kimmy is doing great, her mouth is fully healed.  She is bathing herself like she should but couldn't do before her surgery.  Since her gums are healed, she is back to eating hard food and bathing herself like she used to do when she was younger.

Thank you to all who donated to Kimmy's surgery!
