The goal of Country Cat sanctuary is no more homeless cats

Country Cat Sanctuary is a registered non-profit charitable organization owned and operated by Gwen Thompson                 



Seeking some helpful souls to help at the Sanctuary


We are short volunteers for the sanctuary!   We are looking for mature people who have a car and who are physically in shape to fill in for clean up detail days at the sanctuary,  to do litters,  feed and water the felines and general clean up . 

Specifically there is no one for every second Monday,  lots of Friday vacancies and Saturdays. 

Please contact me, Gwen Thompson either on Facebook (Country Cat Sanctuary) or leave a message on my cell phone at 613-258-2622.   Please be slow and clear when leaving a message and if you can, kindly repeat it so that I do not miss it!   The Sanctuary is located about fifteen minutes south of Kemptville in the country. 

Thank you very much for your kindness

Things we always need

What Gwen holds to be true

Her undying affection and dedication for all cats

What country cat does for homeless cats



By adopting a feline from Country Cat Sanctuary, you save two lives  - one by providing a forever home to a very deserving cat and two, by making more room for Gwen to save another cat.  In addition, you are adopting a cat that has been spayed or neutered; treated for internal and external parasites and is or will be vaccinated as part of the adoption fees. You can view all the adorable adoptable cats by clicking on ADOPT in the menu list above.  If you see one that you think might be just the perfect one for you, call Gwen to arrange a visit.  Gwen is here to help you find just the perfect match!

Permanent Residents - Sorry we are at Full Capacity

Country Cat Sanctuary is at full capacity so is unable to accept ferals or surrenders any longer.  Ferals are a life time commitment to care and due to this requirement and with a heavy heart, Gwen is no longer able to accept any additional cats such as ferals and/or surrenders due to the numerous reasons why they can no longer be cared for by owners. 

Daily Care and Nuturing and Lots and Lots of Food!

Country Cat Sanctuary is a 100% volunteer charity dedicated to addressing the plight of homeless cats in the Greater Ottawa-Gatineau area and  relies solely on donations.  All donations support our life-saving work. A list of items that would lovingly help the sanctuary are listed under "THINGS WE NEED" button above.

Rescue, Veterinary Costs and Medical Needs

Country Cat Sanctuary undertakes humanely trapping of homeless kittens and abandoned or stray adult cats, feeding and providing medical care for feral cats, curbing population growth through spaying and neutering and vaccinating; and educating the public on the compassionate treatment of homeless cats and responsible pet ownership through our Facebook page.
