Who We Are
We are Whis-Purr Rescue, Inc., a new 501c3 not-for-profit corporation dedicated to helping our feline friends. There are hundreds of strays, ferals and abandoned cats in neighborhoods in the community. Whis-Purr Rescue will work with these families, helping them find a lost cat’s home, trapping a feral, neutering and releasing back into the neighborhood where they can live and be fed daily or taken in to Whis-Purr Rescue for warmth and tender loving care until they can find their very own home.
