The Cat House found homes for 367 cats in 2021

Happy New Year! The Cat House (TCH) has two resolutions that never change from year to year, and those are helping our cats find their forever homes and meeting all their needs while they are in our care. We are proud to say that we found homes for 367 cats in 2021!

The cats living at TCH have many ongoing needs -- such as food, medical care and litter. TCH thanks all of the generous donors who continue to make financial donations and assist us with supplies. Another way that TCH helps to cover the costs of these needs is through our retail store. Our busy volunteers make pet beds, carrier linings and catnip-stuffed sticks and mice that your cat will love. We even have t-shirts, sweatshirts and paw design necklaces for you!

When you purchase items from TCH, you are helping us continue our work of sheltering and finding forever homes for the cats in our care – as well as cats in our community. TCH has a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program that works to humanely control the local feral cat population. Kittens and tame stray cats may be taken into TCH to find good homes, space permitting. Healthy cats too feral to be adopted are returned to their familiar habitat under the lifelong care of volunteers.

TCH is Lincoln’s only no-kill cat shelter and adoption facility. Come visit us during open hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., or on Sundays between 1:30 p.m. and 4 p.m., if you are looking to adopt a cat or kitten. Visit to see the latest COVID-19 restrictions for visitors.

Don’t forget to “Like” us on Facebook and follow us on Instagram. We are always posting pictures of new adoptable cats and kittens, updates on our recent adoptions, and fun cat facts and pictures to brighten your day! To receive updates directly to your inbox, send an email to and ask to be added to the mailing list.

The Cat House is a 501(c)(3) organization; contributions may be tax-deductible. TCH is funded by donations and adoption fees and is staffed by volunteers.
