For the entirety of its existence, Browncoat Cat Rescue has operated as a series of foster homes. All of our cats and kittens are raised as beloved members of their foster families. As the years have passed, we have trapped in more locations, and taken in more unwanted cats and kittens.
The need has always been higher than our ability; one person cannot remedy all the wrongs of the world. Even with our wonderful community of caregivers, there's always more that can be done.
And so, the Alley Cat Cafe was conceived. We wanted a place that could serve both as an adoption center for a number of our adoptable crew members, and also as a community hub. A safe space for rescued cats and people needing a little rescuing alike.
Our purristas love to feed people, and the urge to nurture everything is strong!
So we have the cafe, where people can get fair trade, organic coffee, or tea from a family run business. We feed the body, with food both savory and sweet. And we feed the soul, with visitable cats who are also available for adoption. Our community is a diverse and wonderful organism, with some connection issues. We help people connect to cats, each other, and themselves. The simple joy of watching kittens play, or the comfort of a cat choosing your lap to sleep in cannot be underestimated. There's no pressure to adopt; we want everyone to make responsible decisions with their lives. We've found fantastic foster families through the cafe, which allows us to save the lives of even more cats and kittens.
Browncoat Cat Rescue strives to provide a safe and loving environment for all our crew members, and we are utterly delighted to have expanded that territory to include cat loving humans!
The Captain of Browncoat Cat is a self proclaimed crazy cat lady. Of course, we're all mad here...
