Tribute Plaques

Our Tribute Plaques are a meaningful way to commemorate animals and those who love them. Not only do they provide a special way to celebrate a loved one’s life and legacy, they also help sustain and support our lifesaving work for cats. A gift of $1,000 or more entitles you to a tribute plaque honoring your loved one. The inscribed plaque will be placed on the wall of our headquarters. With a gift of $5,000 or more, an image of your loved one will be added to the plaque.
