Important Details - You Need to Read This
Whiskers cat rescue is not an open admissions municipal shelter. Please understand that Whiskers cannot accept every cat inquiring to be surrendered to our rescue. We respect the difficult decisions owners have to make when relinquishing their pets. Still, we firmly believe that despite difficult choices that must be made, the animal's life is equally important, and doing your due diligence to keep the animal safe and cared for is paramount.
We can only accept the surrender of
unowned or owned animals as our capacity and resources allow, and for those who truly may not have other options or favorable outcomes. In an effort to lower surrenders to municipal shelters or other rescue organizations, we may offer alternative assistance according to the need of that specific animal or resources towards keeping animals in the home when possible while at the same time working on getting the animal placed in another program. If an animal is accepted into our program, finding a foster home generally takes time, so we may not be able to immediately take the animal into our care. This rule also applies to medical cases, which we prioritize in order of severity. We are a small organization entirely funded by donations; resource availability is always a factor in the animals we can accept into our rescue. Please consider donating to Whiskers by visiting https://whiskersutah.org/donate/.
