We want to provide a safe permanent haven for cats with uncurable, chronic or terminal illness, old age, and/or personality problems. These cats are not animals that would be adoptable or could even be sustained in a normal animal shelter setting. However, despite taking in these special needs cats, we do believe in quality of life, rather than quantity of life.We do not let any of our animals suffer and in most cases, we do not incur large veterinary bills to do heroic, life-extending medical measures.
Healing Hope Sanctuary is run from the home of Kim Rockshaw. Felines are kept both in the home and in the large enclosed back yard. This outside area houses mainly the FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) and feral cats. Animals are not housed in cages, except if they are being quarantined for medical purposes, or at the beginning of their stay, when their personality and health is being evaluated. Shelters and hutches are set up in the back yard, as well as an open garage.
Because Healing Hope is quite small and self-sustaining, we cannot have more than 35 cats on the premises at one time. We cannot take in new felines, unless one of the few adoptable ones goes to a home, or unless one of our senior cats dies. Exceptions are sometimes made to temporarily house an animal in crisis or until the cat can go to a shelter or another suitable setting.
