All 4 Cats is a no-kill cat rescue and community outreach located in Wilmington and Jacksonville, NC. We are an all-volunteer organization and our mission is saving and improving the lives of cats.  Our primary focus is working with the community to rescue stray cats.  We nurse the animals back to health, spay/neuter, socialize, and then we find them permanent and loving homes.  When we are able, we also work with local animal shelters to rescue and re-home pets. ​

We are a foster-based organization, so our volunteers are able to closely observe an animal's behavior to match them with the most suitable forever home.  In addition to adoptions, our volunteers are always thinking of other ways to keep cats safe, such as our courtesy re-homing program, posting lost cats on social media, and providing the community with education and resources.

All 4 Cats is a 501(c)3 registered organization and your donations are tax-deductible.  Please support our cause by becoming a foster, volunteer, donor, or adopter!

Justin's affinity for cats began about 10 years ago when he rescued a one-eyed cat named Uno. Not having much sentiment towards animals at the time, Justin's life was changed completely by Uno's unwavering love. Now his feline family consists of 4 rescue cats.  In his free time, Justin enjoys video games, art, and vegan cooking.
