Cats R Us (CRU) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 cat and kitten rescue organization in the Annapolis, Maryland area whose focus is educating communities about non-lethal and humane care of community cats; controlling the community cat population through TNvR (Trap, Neuter, vaccinate,and Return); and the promotion of low-cost community spay/neuter clinics and initiatives. TNvR means community cats are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and ear-tipped (for identification) by veterinarians.
Kittens caught early enough are tamed, vetted, and available for adoption once they are spayed and neutered and at a minimum 8 weeks of age. We have a small team dedicated to this segment of rescue, along with socializing and care of abandoned adults, both of which have grown to be an integral part of our overall efforts.
As a feline rescue group, it is all too common to find abandoned, domesticated cats. These tame cats enter our adoption program, are vetted, and once deemed healthy, begin the search for their forever homes.
CRU does not accept owner surrendered pets, but we can direct you to other organizations that may assist you.
In our 20 years of existence, CRU has facilitated the spay and neuter of approximately 15,000 cats. This has contributed greatly to the effort of controlling the problem of feline over-population in our area.
