A goal is set…


…and it requires your help! But first, a little background.

When I started Three Chatty Cats in January this year, I had no idea what I was doing. I just knew that I loved cats, enjoyed writing and thought a blog focused on cats would be a fun thing to do. (And it is!)

But after starting the blog, I quickly realized that I was drawn to cat rescues and anyone doing their part to help cats in need – be it an entire animal rescue group, a single person doing TNR efforts, a foster parent or someone who simply rescued a cat off the street. With all of the bad in the world and all of the kitties out there suffering, I feel it’s important to highlight the good – because there is so much good out there, too – and to showcase groups and people who live their lives devoted to cats and animals in general.

My first few profiles on cat rescue groups featured out-of-state rescues. Being a blog with readers all over the world, I define out-of-state as not being local to me here in California. I have since featured a local rescue group and of course plan to continue with any that come my way.

Then it hit me. Wouldn’t it be a fun goal to feature a rescue group from every state? I certainly think so! But I’ll need your help. It’s one thing for me to do a quick internet search and find an animal rescue group, but I would love to receive your suggestions of rescues and groups to feature. Perhaps it’s a group you volunteer with or that you adopted from. Or maybe it’s a group that you simply admire. Please – don’t be shy! It might take me a while to get through all 50 states (and let’s also throw in D.C. and Puerto Rico for fun), but I’m not going anywhere. And to be clear, I want to feature any rescue that comes my way. If it’s from a state that I’ve already covered – well, I say the more the merrier.

Let’s get those suggestions rolling in! And bonus points if it’s an out-of-country rescue! Feel free to either leave a comment below or use the Contact page. I thank you kindly.

It looks like the Three Chatty Cats have some suggestions! What about you?

P.S. It doesn’t have to be a 501(c)3 group. I understand that not all rescue groups have their 501(c)3 status yet, but they’re still doing great rescue work!


Here is where I am to date. I will update the graph as I’m able to cover more states and you can follow along on the Profile Goal page.

So far, I have these states represented: Alabama, California, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, Ohio. And tomorrow, I will be able to add New York!

  1. This is a great idea! But I’m also in California so can’t help you out there! Good luck, though, this sounds interesting! Oh and I also think it would be cool if you could do posts on cat cafes which I’ve heard about in other countries but don’t think we have any in the US?

    1. What a wonderful idea! I know, I’m so jealous anytime I hear about a cat cafe. I actually think there is one in the San Diego area, which isn’t too far from me. I will have to Google it to find out more. But I love your idea and will start looking into it!

      1. 472 3rd Ave, San Diego, CA 92101
        “in the heart of downtown San Diego’s Marina District, at 472 Third Avenue. Our venue is at the intersection of Third Avenue and Island Avenue, with the entrance on Island Avenue.” Open 8-3. http://www.catcafesd.com/
        pics allowed – but no flash

                  1. i recall that it was also a day which looked cool but was actually quite hot & humid. I thought it would be worse inside the building. combined with the crowds, i might have turned murderous. better to drive back home!

                    then i ran into a nightmare in LB that prevented me from doing whatever I was planning as an alternative. i think i just went home and drank vodka for the rest of the day.

  2. Wonderful idea!! I love to read all about the good people are doing all over & think this is a great goal!!

  3. You can interview me for the photography (of course!), but I can find you someone from the rescue that I photograph for here in Seattle, WA. I am so proud of it! Talk to me any time.

  4. Utah, with branches in CA and I don’t remember where else: Best Friends Animal Society. they’re a pretty big & well-known rescue group, which may not be what you’re seeking, but it’s a starting point.

    1. Great minds think alike! I actually visited Best Friends last year in Utah and LOVED it! Their sanctuary is such an amazing place. It’s funny though, I’ve never been to their LA location even though it’s much closer. :-)

  5. What a pawsome idea! For Vermont I would suggest Franklin County Animal Rescue. I adopted Angels Tara and Truffles from them and they are just wonderful.

Any thoughts to share?
