Cat Depot works diligently to rescue abandoned, abused, injured and relinquished cats and kittens and carefully find loving homes for these animals.
Cat Depot has partnered with the ASPCA, SPCA, Maddie's Foundation, American Humane and local humane organizations in Manatee, Sarasota and greater Florida to provide emergency medical relief for cats.
Cat Depot staff and volunteers have trained with FEMA approved Florida State Animal Response Coalition and assisted with hoarding rescues involving over 1,000 cats including assisting with the placement of cats from Gainesville, Bradenton, Longboat Key, Anna Maria Island, Port St Lucie, Sarasota and Venice.
An Emergency Disaster Plan is in place for Cat Depot cats.
