We are desperately in need of donations if The Hermitage Cat Shelter is to survive.

It costs us $1 per day to feed and provide for a cat, and with over 200 residents, we need all the help we can get!

Please donate whatever you can and rest assured that 100% of your donation goes directly to feed, shelter and care for each cat. All donations are tax-deductible under section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code (EIN 86-0213263) and receipts are available upon request.

Donations of cash are what we need most. You can donate online via PayPal or Pay Simple. You do not need a PayPal account to use a credit card to make a one-time donation via PayPal. You can also mail your donations to us at:

Hermitage Cat Shelter
PO Box 13508
Tucson AZ 85732

If you wish to make a donation on a regular basis and do not wish to use PayPal, your bank can set up automatic payments for you.

If your employer has a matching gift program, you can double the value of your donation! Many large companies match employee charitable contributions and all you have to do to double the value of your donation to us is to fill out their form and send it in.

Sponsor a Cat

We know that some of our cats, for whatever reasons — old age, trauma, or medical problems — will never be adopted and will spend their lives here. We cherish these kitties and always want to be able to provide the best for them. We promised them that they would never again have to worry about having enough food to eat, a warm bed in which to snuggle, or a caring human to give them lots of love and to take care of their health.

We also realize that some of you may not be able to adopt one of our cats but would like to be able to help them out. That's why we have the SPONSOR-A-CAT program. You can become a sponsor for just $25 a month. Your donation helps pay for the basic needs of each cat during his/her stay with us. You are also welcome (and encouraged!) to visit us and "your" cat as often as you can. The cats do remember frequent visitors and enjoy the individual love and attention their sponsors provide.

Make a Memorial or Tribute Donation

You may make a tribute donation in honor of, or in memory of, a person or pet. We will send an acknowledgement card to the person you choose and will display the tribute on our Memorial or Tribute page.
