Groundbreaking on our new shelter was on Tuesday, July 21st! This day is so important to so many people - to many of you!
We will keep you updated on the shelter progress every step of the way.
Our fundraising is not over so please share this if you feel inclined.  Thank Mew to you all!

Shelter Update on Hours of Operation
Happy is doing his meowy best to calculate the days until we can be open again 😊
We actually have had some improvement but we still have multiple cats in the front area being treated. This area is where visitors enter into the shelter 😢
If you want to drop donations off or have a special request, please contact me via private message, email me at or leave a message at 440-582-4990 😊
Please know that we are working very closely with our vets to clear this up as soon as possible. We hope it is sooner rather than later 🐾
We miss you all very much! 💜🐾

Adopting a Cat at Stay-A-While

Stay-A-While wants only the best life possible for our cats and kittens. To ensure that they get responsible loving homes, new guardians are required to agree to the following policies. A legal contract is signed upon adoption agreeing to these policies. Stay-A-While has the right to refuse any adoption based on the information provided during the pre-adoption interview.
