We have so many stories of donations making a real difference. Every dollar helps us save a life.


The Odds Were Against Harmony.
Harmony's leg was broken as a kitten, and it healed creating a deformation in her foot. Then to top that off, shortly after Harmony came to Give Me Shelter we discovered she had juvenile stomatitis, which required major dental extractions. Thanks to your contributions, we were able to treat her medically, and she's now enjoying her happy life in a loving, forever home.


Tripod Kitten Winter Came All the Way from Iran!
Winter was hit by a car. His leg was crushed and needed to be amputated. He traveled to San Francisco all the way from Tehran, Iran. We cared for him medically, and he stayed in one of our foster homes. Winter was ultimately adopted into a family with another tripod kitty. Purrfect!
Please donate to help special-needs kittens like Harmony and Winter.


Your Support Makes Real Transformation Possible

Rubin was surrendered to the San Francisco city shelter. We believe he was traumatized and abused in his previous home.  He was terrified and aggressive in the shelter and rescue was his only option. After spending time in a foster home, Rubin learned to trust again. We took the time to ensure he found an appropriate family and environment. It sure paid off!. Look at Rubin now in his loving, forever home!


Senior Cats Get a Second Chance Because of You

Opie was Left Alone After Her Person Died. After losing her only person, Opie was scared and confused. She ended up at the San Francisco city shelter. She's now learning to trust, and relearning what it's like to be loved in her foster home. Opie was just adopted into a loving, forever home.
Please donate to help us save more senior cats like Opie.


OVER 75 cats and kittens have found their forever homes so far in 2019. Kitten season is about to kick in again. This means we're are about to get overwhelmed with cats and kittens. Adult and senior cats lives will be most at risk, because they're often overlooked. These cats may have minor, treatable medical needs. Some may need a costly dental procedure, while others are in need of being spayed/neutered or just basic veterinary care. Most are just scared, and have the unfortunate luck of ending up in a kill shelter. We desperately need your help to save their lives. Give Me Shelter takes in some of the most vulnerable cats and kittens from San Francisco Animal Care and Control and from many high-kill shelters in the Central Valley. Our focus is on saving the most vulnerable special-needs, senior, FIV+, scared, shy, abused, neglected abandoned kitties. With your help, we can save many more!.

Please consider donating to help us to continue our life-saving work and keep our doors open. We couldn't save so many special kitties without YOU.
