DO NOT go to CHS..they were the most horrible people, they did not care about my dying cat and I didn't have much money, all they cared about was the almighty dollar and my cat suffered and died right in front of me! I never cried so hard in my life!! Cat Welfare wasn't any better they all want money before they will even think of bringing in your cat...the only answer i got from CHS, OSU, MedVet and Capitol was "sorry to hear that"

Do Not Get Your Cat From This Shelter
amylee101
I love cats and currently own one cat and foster regularly. However, I do not recommend getting your cat from this shelter. Try CHA or Pets Without Parents instead (the one other shelter to adopt a cat in Columbus is the Humane Society and I don't recommend them just because they are crowded, unfriendly, and it is difficult to see all the cats and play with them to decide which you want to adopt).

This shelter goes against what every other shelter holds as the golden rule. You can't let someone take a cat home if it can still make babies! That is the point. We wouln't need shelters if stray cats (born stray or left to roam outdoors by owners) weren't out there proliferating.

This shelter gets away with the shody practice by saying they don't spay/neuter until 6 months, and they will send you a reminder in the mail. Of course they never sent me a reminder! Why would they? They can pocket the extra money from the adoption fee and never pay a vet to spay/neuter.

I am ashamed that I adopted from here when they are contributing to the problem of feral cats

Pros: cheaper rates than any other shelter ($60 versus $100)
Cons: WILL ADOPT WITHOUT BEING SPAYED/NEUTERED

^^^^ This previous review is incorrect. I adopted a kitten at 8 weeks and she had just been spayed and a couple of days ago I adopted another at 6 weeks and he had just been neutered. I even asked to be sure and they said that no cats could be adopted until the procedure was done..and I know they weren't lying because there were a few kittens in one of the cages and when they saw me looking at them they said oh they aren't ready to go yet, they haven't been fixed.

I don't know where this reviewer got their information, but it is indeed incorrect. So adopt here it's a great non-profit!

Cat Welfare is a wonderful no kill organization. They care for almost 200 cats sick or healthy. The cats either have clean cages or wander on the floor and play with toys. They help cats and kittens get adopted or if they are not adopted, the cats are cared for at Cat Welfare their entire lives. No cat is ever put to sleep just to make room. Help Cat Welfare care for all these cats by making a donation today, or even consider vollunteering there.

My sister introduced me to cat welfare, where I got my adorable kitten Boo. This place is dependent on donations, both monetary and physical (food, toys, litter, etc).

It's a no-kill facility, so any cat that isn't adopted simply makes its home permanently at the shelter. Kittens run about $70, but it's well worth it because that includes all shots, tests for diseases, and when the kitten is old enough, spaying or neutering.

Older cats cost less, but need your love even more. When you walk in, most of the cats are roaming around or sleeping in the sun. I go in often simply to visit with the cats and give them a little love.

Don't go to the pet store when you can get an adorable, and affordable cat at Cat Welfare! It's worth the trip!!

PROS:
CONS: A little hard to find, but make the effort!

I cannot say enough about these wonderful people! This is one of my favorite places in the whole world! All 4 of our kitties came from Cat welfare! This no-kill shelter is a refuge for Columbus' cats! I love to just go and visit the kitties and pet them. ONe special thing about this place is that they have a long term care facility for sick and injured cats to live out their days. Complete with a sun porch! Please consider adopting from here!!!!

I have adopted two cats from this shelter. They are a wonderful shelter with very nice employees/volunteers. The cats are well cared for and the place is always clean. They even gave one of my cats a free dental before I adopted him. They are a NO KILL shelter. Some cats have been there over ten years! Give them a try if you are looking to adopt.

PROS: They keep their cats healthy!
CONS:

We have visited the Cat Welfare Saturday garage sale a funding for many years, and visited the shelter to just ""pet"" the kitties, sharing the love of ""homeless "" cats. \r
Cat Welfare is a very well-run organization.... filled with loving folks who truly care for all cats in their care. \r
We adopted Sasha Fierce who had been hit by a car as a kitten, and had received over $1000 worth of care by a compassionate vet. She had been tested, all shots, spayed, and micro-chipped....all for $80. An additional trip to the vet for a common kennel illness was covered by Cat Welfare.\r
Cat Welfare will ""TAKE BACK"" cats that do not fit into their adoptive homes. Many special funds for alteration surgeries, foster care, ""unsociables"", special needs,etc. are created and maintained for wonderful loving care of Columbus Kitties. I felt that an older unfavorable posted comment was unfair to this dedicated group of people.\r
Our kitten had been lovingly fostered throughout her femer pinning, and is now a delightful family member.

The staff at Cat Welfare are the best! They truly care about the welfare of the cats. The volunteers are very devoted and reliable. It is a shame that there is such an overpopulation of cats today. However, Cat Welfare is the best resource we have in Columbus to help. They are always in need of assistance (cat food, litter, monetary donations etc). I will continue to do my part to help this wonderful organization. I just wish I could do more!

Cat Welfare has been around for years and years and after visiting to check out the facility and their adoption criteria, we decided to adopt an adult cat that had been injured by a car and had lost all his teeth. We took to him immediately and he turned out to be the sweetest pet ever. Cat Welfare had received the cat from someone who brought him in after the accident. They had a vet see to his injuries and they tenderly took care of him, bringing him back to health and even neutered him. He had all his tests and shots and was clean. He was in a very clean cage with his own litterbox and food and water. He even had a handmade crochet blanket that they said volunteers made and donated to the shelter. Cat Welfare also had dozens and dozens of cats living outside of cages and wandering around, playing, or sleeping throughout the shelter. Their policy is that if a cat is not adopted or is found to be unadoptable, the cat will spend the remainder of it's life at their shelter with continued vet and loving care. How awesome is that?! We now have a family membership with Cat Welfare and will forevermore go to them for our furry little angels and recommend them to anyone looking for a cat...either adult or kitten. They are truly worth their weight in gold.
