West Side Cats first opened it’s doors in 2008. We are a non-profit, no-kill rescue and adoption facility in Youngstown, Ohio. We were founded by individuals who didn’t want to volunteer for kill shelters any longer. We have always been operated by volunteers.
We like to take in injured and disabled kitties and have no problem adopting them out. We have taken in kittens that are blind, missing limbs or have been born with Cerebellar Hypoplasia (a birth defect that affects balance). We also take in normal kitties in dangerous circumstances.
We outgrew our first location and moved to our current location in 2010. With the exception of our clinic, all kitties await adoption in colorful, open rooms with plenty of beds and toys. We have plenty of climbing trees including a huge wood tree upstairs where there are also climbing walkways.
We serve Mahoning County and surrounding areas. People have come from other states to adopt our kitties.
Every year we adopt between 300-900 cats and kittens.
