About Us

It all Started with a VERY Generous Donation

Ralphie's Retreat for Cats

 Ralphie's Retreat is a no-kill shelter for cats who have been diagnosed with Feline Leukemia. 

Some of our feline friends come from homes where their owner could no longer care for them, or from a shelter that was set to euthanize them, 

just for testing positive. They all have a unique story to tell and hope that you will sponsor them with your donation.   

In 2011 we were able to start building our shelter because of a very generous donation of land.

Since then we have made many new additions and improvements to our shelter which is always filled to capacity.

It's taken a lot of love, hard work and dedication, but the animals make every day a joy for us!
You can share in that joy by sponsoring one of our cats.
Check out our SPONSOR page to find the purrrfect cat.
