S.A.I.N.T. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization with several goals. First, to capture, neuter and release feral cats in order to combat overpopulation and reduce the overall number of feral cats; second, to remove animals from situations where their livelihood is at risk and place them in loving, forever homes; third, to provide services to people who need financial assistance to spay or neuter their pet.

SAINT Rescue has been in existence for over 16 years, rescuing and adopting out cats and kittens. All veterinary and medical expenses were funded primarily by our founder for the first 15 years of our existence. SAINTs was formally incorporated and obtained its 501C(3) status in 2010. Donations are necessary and greatly appreciated to help us continue to do our work. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.

All of the animals we take in have been abandoned by someone. We adopt out approximately 250 cats and kittens every year. Unfortunately, more kitties need to be rescued than we can possibly help.


SAINTS is staffed 100% by volunteers. No one in our organization receives compensation for the work they do. The majority of our volunteers have families and work full-time jobs in addition to their volunteer duties. We do our best to respond as quickly as possible to requests and inquiries but we do this work outside our normal work hours and time is at a premium. If you contact us, please give us 24-48 hours to respond.

  • Cat Adoption Center in Cedar Rapids - The new adoption center on 12th Avenue SW in Cedar Rapids will be open to the public on Saturday, April 19th from Noon until 6 pm. We'll also have volunteers and cats at the Tour for Life event at Newbo Market during the same hours. If you're interested in adopting a cat this would be a great time to stop by. We'll also have a fundraiser with items for cats and cat lovers and possibly a small bake sale too!
  • Animal Intake Suspended - On October 20, 2013 the Cat Adoption Center in Anamosa was destroyed in a fire. The structure was a total loss and will be razed. The cats who resided there had to be placed into foster care. Because this has used all the available housing sources we have, S.A.I.N.T cannot receive any new animals.
