  • 5. Loving and caring staff

    by: tuxedocat1

    Jakes Place is a wonderful sanctuary for unwanted cats who have been abandoned, abused, or had little or no human contact in their early years. The staff work hard to develop trusting relationships on the cat's terms and help them to feel comfortable being around people. They carefully screen potential adopters to ensure placement is a good match and the cat is placed in their forever home. In the mean time, the cats are free to roam around the multi-room apartment which is completely furnished and their every need to looked after.

    Pros

    caring and knowledgeable staff

    Cons

    none

  • 9. Used to be Part of Ten Lives CLub

    by: 7789

    Jakes Place was once part of Ten Lives Club until TLC purchased our shelter property and moved all our operations to one shelter place. This now serves as our shelter and we closed down all our rented locations such as Jakes Place. They kept in their care some of our very hard to place cats which were not very adoptable as in being able to move them into our program, move them out through stores, shows, adotptions. We need more org. such as Jakes Place to help the cats and older cats in need out there!

    Pros

    This rescue group is ful-filling a need in our community

    Cons

    We need more of such groups

  • 10. Taking care of unwanted cats

    by: swansong82

    Jake's place became a sole adoption center after Ten Live's Club decided to give up this site. Many of the volunteers concernced about the cats took over this shelter and chip in to pay the expenses. They are taking care of many cats that most people overlook for adoption. They are in great need of financial assistance and because they are not as well known as Ten Lives Club don't receive as many donations as Ten Lives does. I commend the volunteers at this shelter and praise them for their level of committment. If you are looking for a shelter to support or volunteer at, check out Jake's place. You won't be sorry.

    Pros

    great caring staff

    Cons

    none
