Pallet Cat Foundation

We are a non-profit rescue organization focusing on feral and free-roaming cats in our area and how to help them by trapping, neutering, vaccinating and returning to their locations if found to be safe enough. Suitable homes are found for kittens younger than 4 or 5 months, as well as for docile, socialized cats that were stray or abandoned, found living in colonies where we trapped.

We have placed more than 300 cats to-date!

The focus of Pallet Cat Foundation is TNR (trap-neuter-return) of feral cats living in colonies and neighborhood cats with dedicated caretakers. We do not manage a facility for housing of homeless cats. However, in the time since we started our work in 2021, we have placed over 300 cats and kittens in good homes. They are housed temporarily in foster homes until we can find permanent placements. Below are featured some of our re-homing success stories.

If you would like to volunteer to foster cats or kittens, please contact us here.

Our Latest Success Story!

Mindy, Mandy and Martin

Mindy, Mandy and Martin were very small kittens first noticed at the local Walmart hiding out in the pallets looking for food scraps and depending on the kindness of strangers for food and water.  They were noticed by a passerby and brought to the attention of local concerned volunteers who immediately set about trying to secure them and get them to safety.

After countless nights and much effort, all of the Walmart kitties were successfully trapped and relocated to homes or rescues.  This was the start of the idea for the Pallet Cat Foundation. 

Mindy, Mandy and Martin were the sibling group who were successfully located to happy homes. Mindy and Mandy were adopted together by an older couple in Bullitt County and Martin was also adopted to a loving family in Shepherdsville.

Please help our doggie friends in the Nelson County Animal Shelter

Transportation to Northern Rescue Organizations

Since 2018, many dogs and puppies from the Nelson County Animal Shelter have found new homes through a program which requires that they be transported to rescue organizations in the Northeast United States and in Canada. With the help of this program, the live release rate for canines in this rural county shelter has increased to as much as 85% in some years. A “no kill” shelter is defined as 90% of animals saved.

Although the shelter is now managed by our county government, the Humane Society of Nelson County, as a friend of the shelter, is still committed to paying for the cost of transportation by providing a vehicle, auto insurance, driver wages, and other expenses. The Humane Society must contribute over $10,000 each year to cover this life-saving program.

Please help us help dogs and puppies, many of which would be facing euthanasia without placement through this program. Northern organizations often take dogs that are older, hard-to-place because of breed or behavior, pregnant and nursing mothers, and others with special needs. Over 200 dogs and pups found new homes through this program in 2022.

Our goal is $10,000. We are accepting tax deductible donations through our GoFundMe page.
