Katie’s Place is a volunteer-run nonprofit animal shelter in Maple Ridge B.C. We rescue and nurture small animals, adopting out those that we can and providing permanent sanctuary for the rest. The shelter is named after the cat who was its first resident and the rightful owner of the barn where we began. Katie’s Place houses up to 125 cats with separate enclosures for new or convalescent cats and for the FIV/FeLV+ residents — who still hope for loving homes of their own.
Two principals guide us: all life is valuable, and we are responsible for improving the quality of life for all those in our care. We make no judgment on whose life is worth rescuing. The sick, elderly and homely are as precious to us as the healthy, young and attractive.
