More commonly funded by donations, private foundations and feline welfare groups, no-kill shelters promise every cat that enters a home until home. Each cat may stay as long as it takes to find a forever home, without the threat of being killed. Unfortunately, space is limited and adoptable cats are turned away. And for some, especially senior cats, a no-kill shelter does become home, forever. Adopting from a no-kill shelter gives one life a real home while freeing space to save another.
