About Our Rescue


MMCR was formed in November of 2003 and since then has found quality homes for thousands of animals in Michigan. MMCR primarily assists cats and kittens, but either directly or through partnerships with other Michigan shelters MMCR has sometimes assisted other animals.

Mid-Michigan Cat Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit, non-state and non-federally funded 501.C(3) volunteer based organization that depends solely on donations from the general public and fundraisers in the Mid-Michigan area.


We are dedicated to finding lifetime homes for abused, abandoned, neglected or owner-relinquished cats and kittens. All rescued cats or kittens are temporarily fostered in our homes (not a shelter) until a qualified, responsible applicant can be matched to each individual cat and permanently adopted. We maintain the highest standards of comprehensive veterinary care which includes but is not limited to: practicing spay/neuter of all cats, immunizations, FIV/FeLV testing and parasite control.

We are a non-euthanasia organization (except when injury, disease or temperament makes other options impossible) and we will never sell to research facilities.

MMCR maintains a feral colony of over 80 cats and we practice TNR (trap, neuter, release) whenever possible. MMCR also aids the general public with low-cost spay and neuter. We assist in public education about the importance of sterilization to reduce animal over population and the humane treatment of domesticated animals.

We accept personal, lifetime responsibility for any animal that has been in our care and make every attempt to adopt out healthy, well-socialized and mentally-sound cats and kittens. We keep the highest standards of professionalism and excellence in care including love, tenderness, dignity and compassion for our foster cats. We are a dedicated and responsible group of volunteers with many years of in home foster care experience who are motivated and focused on cat and kitten rescue.

Our Commitment to Non-Euthanasia

We do not use euthanasia as a way of controlling our cat population, and will keep a cat for its entire life if a suitable home is not found for them. The only exception would be in case of extreme injury, disease, or disorder. We take the cat’s quality of life into account and we have the highest standards of professionalism and excellence in care including love, tenderness, dignity, and compassion for our foster cats.
