Kuranda Cat Bed and Cat Tower Program

 

Our cats really enjoy their Kuranda beds, because the beds add an extra level to their cages. The cats would also love to have a new Cat Tower or two to play on in the cat room and give them easier access to their catwalk. You can donate a Cat Bed or Cat Tower and Kuranda will ship it directly to the shelter.  Please click this link for details:

About the Shelter

In September of 1998, Grosse Ile Township and T.A.I.L.S. took a dirt-floor horse barn and turned it into a spacious, animal-friendly shelter.  We have come a long way since then.  

Our dog kennel area is bright and cheerful.  Our individual kennels are large and spacious with comfy armchairs that allow the dogs to be up off the floor.  Our dogs are only outside when we can supervise them, either in fenced-in dog runs or being walked around the farm by volunteers.  We attempt to housebreak and leash train all of our dogs, in addition to working on basic commands.

Our cat room is a very unique place.  Each cat has its own cage with cozy cat blankets and toys.  After being tested for FelV and FIV, they are allowed to roam free for most of the day, interacting with other cats. Volunteers built a catwalk in 1999 to encourage fun cat play.  There are also seats at each window to allow daily bird watching.  An addition was added in 2007 to provide quarantine space for sick cats and a quiet area for nursing mothers and their young litters.  

The Grosse Ile Animal Shelter houses stray animals picked up by Animal Control and those turned in by Grosse Ile residents only.  Stray animals must be picked up by Animal Control at your residence or the location where the stray animal was found.  We are not able to house surrendered animals from other communities.

All animals are housed under the direction of the Animal Control Officer only.  Volunteers cannot accept animals.
