Carol’s Ferals is a free-roaming facility, and as such, we follow strict cleanliness and disease-prevention protocols, as set forth by our vet and the state of Michigan.

Therefore, we are unable to accept donations of used litter boxes, food and water dishes, scratching posts, cat trees, cat beds, or cat toys. It is for the health and safety of our cats.  We encourage you to donate such items to Goodwill or other charities, where the items can either be sold or recycled.

We accept open bags of dry cat food and off brand canned food within expiration date.  We can share these specific items with community cat caregivers.

You can drop any of these items off in the breezeway of our rehab facility. Just call 616 560-0555 or email to get directions.
