About the PCS Organization

Our History, Goals, and Process adopting a Cat from PCS.

We have had struggles and milestones throughout the years trying to adopt cats into the community.

Our History

In early 2006, a call for help went out from an animal shelter in Cleveland, Ohio. The owner had taken in over 100 cats from two hoarder homes in another county. The cats came from deplorable conditions - some had lived in windowless rooms with only artificial light by day. Others lived in 6 x 8 pens covered with chicken wire and kept in a warehouse. They did not know what litter pans were and were never vaccinated, spayed or neutered. When the owner of the original shelter announced the shelter would be closing and the city would be taking the cats, most likely euthanizing them.

The Founder and Executive Director of Purr-fect Companions Sanctuary, Ann Wilson, sprang into action. With the help of volunteers, she purchased and renovated a facility in Cleveland to house the cats in one half and placed a caretaker in the other half. In early September of 2006, over 100 cats were moved to their new home at Purr-fect Companions Sanctuary where they could roam free without cages - as close to "home" as a shelter can be. Since then, the Sanctuary has found homes for many of them and have taken in others. Once acclimated to the shelter and liter-box trained, they socialize with other cats and humans to prepare for adoption. We have cats of all ages all with their own unique personalities. Make an appointment to visit us and open your heart and loving home to one or more of our residents.

Our Goals and Passions

Purr-fect Companions Sanctuary, we have created an environment where rescued, disabled and senior cats are treated with unconditional love. Our cats live in a free-roaming environment where they socialize with volunteers people and other cats. We take the time every day to stimulate our cats' minds and bodies through active play, brushing and petting, making sure they all get the individualized attention that they need to thrive in a forever home.
If you have any questions, are looking to adopt a cat, wish to donate or, become a volunteer, please contact us.

We depend on Humans to care for us.

Our Process to adopt a Cat or Kitten from PCS

Finding a permanent home with a loving companion is priority #1!

Once you have found a cat or two, or more on the website, please contact us via our contact form or by phone 1-216-671-6369 (click to call mobile) and leave a message with your name, phone and any questions you may have. Please be patient, as we will get back to you.

If you are interested in a particular cat, we ask you to Download our Adoption Application, print it out and complete it. If you can not, it can be filled out while you visit the cats at the Sanctuary. It may seem long, but we want to be careful in matching our residents with new forever homes.
When we contact you, we will speak with you, answer any questions and set up a time for you to visit the shelter and review your application. Our best viewing time is between 1-4pm Monday through Friday, but we can also arrange for a special time if necessary. You will speak with the Director or one of our great Volunteers and have a chance to socialize and meet all of the cats and kittens.  You are encouraged to make more than one visit to the shelter if undecided about a cat. Our adoption committee reviews all adoption requests carefully, so we cannot allow cats to leave on your first visit to the shelter.

Please note: Our shelter is located in a private building and not open to the general public to maintain privacy for the cats. We are almost always full and cannot handle drop-offs of unwanted kittens and cats from the public. Please keep our address confidential so that the cats we are able to take in can be cared for appropriately by our volunteers.

We look forward to finding great homes for our cats and welcome all serious inquiries.

My Regards,

Ann Wilson, Founder/Director of Purr-fect Companions Sanctuary.

We want you to be happy with your feline and have it fit into your life and lifestyle.
