Along the banks of the Kings River, just outside of  Reedley, is California’s largest no-kill sanctuary and adoption center for abandoned cats.
Cat House on the Kings founder Lynea Lattanzio estimates that more than 38,000 animals have been rescued through the organization’s efforts in its 26 years of operation.
The 12-acre property is home to about 700 adult cats (and a few tolerant dogs) at any given time. Most come from the streets of Fresno, Kings, and Tulare counties.

Lattanzio estimates that more than 38,000 animals have been rescued through the organization’s efforts in its 26 years of operation.

Living Out Their Lives

Lattanzio describes it as “a place where an animal can come out, if it’s not adoptable, and live out its life.”
But, providing a compassionate home for hundreds of abandoned and neglected cats that would otherwise face daily danger from injury, hunger, and disease is just part of the Cat House mission.

Promoting Responsible Pet Parents

The larger goal is to reduce the size of the Valley’s unwanted pet population. Every animal that comes through Cat House on the Kings is spayed or neutered. In addition, the facility provides these vital medical services to the public at low cost to encourage responsible pet ownership.
“We’ve probably spayed and neutered a couple hundred thousand (cats),” Lattanzio said.
Cat House on the Kings is committed to expanding on that already impressive achievement. At the same time, the organization and its cadre of dedicated volunteers will continue to provide a safe haven for its large family of furry orphans that call Cat House on the Kings their home.

Visitors Can See for Themselves

Lattanzio encourages visitors to schedule an appointment to see for themselves what her organization has accomplished.
“People can come out here and bring the family, walk to the river and play with the cats,” she said. “It turns into an experience.”
