Who We Are

The Ferndale Cat Shelter is a non-profit 501(c)3 dedicated to providing medical care, adoption services, foster homes and trap-neuter-release programs for felines in the Metropolitan Detroit area. As a no-kill organization, our mission is to improve the lives of felines in our community and elevate the standards of cat guardianship and adoption. Our licensed shelter is the Catfé Lounge, a cat café that serves as our hub for cat adoption, volunteering and fostering.

What We Do


Almost every day, FCS is contacted about a cat that needs rehoming. Sometimes it’s because their human passed away, or a family move or a severe allergy. We want to help all of these animals and families in need. We don’t judge, we just want the best outcome for the people that reach out to us and the cats in need.


All rescued cats are examined by our vet and all vaccines are updated prior to being rehomed. Cats in our care are also microchipped. Veterinary care comes at a cost to us and we do not receive government funding. Please support us with a direct donation, a purchase of merch from our shop or by visiting our Catfé.


Every cat deserves a loving home! Ferndale Cat Shelter is a no-kill shelter and our mission is to rehome each and every cat that enters our care. We provide adoption services, foster care and a forever foster care program for our older and special needs cats.
