Our Mission

half the way home is focused on the forgotten ones: the feral mommies and babies, the injured and sick, the seniors that deserved better than being left in animal control because they weren't wanted anymore, the itty bitty hissy spitties that with a little love will turn into the most wonderful kittens and of course, those in rural shelters with little to no hope of rescue.

*HTWH never euthanizes cats due to lack of space. However, many of the cats we take in are at risk due to injuries, illness, or very young age (“bottle babies”). Despite our best efforts, a small number of cats die or must be euthanized to end suffering from incurable medical conditions.
