Tabby’s Place: a Cat Sanctuary

Tabby’s Place is a cage-free, no-kill sanctuary for cats
from hopeless situations located in Ringoes, New Jersey.

Donations accepted online

Here are a few words from the amazing people of Tabby’s Place:

It is our passion to…

Rescue cats from hopeless situations: The majority of our cats come from shelters where they were on the list to be put to sleep. We embrace these cats into the Tabby’s Place family regardless of age, most medical issues, or personality. As such, Tabby’s Place is a haven for the neediest cats of all.

Supply medical care: Tabby’s Place makes a promise to every cat in our care: once she is a Tabby’s Place cat, she will receive all the medical care she needs to have a happy, healthy life, regardless of cost. Whether young and healthy or living with Special Needs, our cats receive first-rate medical care, both here at Tabby’s Place and at specialized treatment centers.

Provide a nurturing environment: When a cat comes to Tabby’s Place, she goes from desperate circumstances to a world of love. We provide cats with the tenderness, patience and personalized care they need to trust people, whatever their past. At Tabby’s Place, cats from hopeless situations enjoy life in bright, open suites that have been designed to meet their needs and delight their senses. Tabby’s Place’s revolutionary design was built for felines from the ground up.

Find loving homes: It is our dream for each cat that she find a loving forever home with a family of her own. Any cat who is not adopted has a home for life at Tabby’s Place, where we are honored to be her forever family.

Stretch & Scratch 

As a shelter volunteer, Joan Laisney saw scratch marks on cage walls and shelving by shelter cats’ attempts to perform natural behaviors: stretching their muscles, scratching to clean their nails and scent mark with paws.

After months of testing, Joan designed a scratcher for caged cats that is sturdy, easy to install and affordable in a tight economy.

Every Shelter of the Month receives a case of these awesome scratchers!  Thank you Stretch & Scratch!

  • attaches to most cage doors
  • mounts on the cage wall to save floor space
  • and keeps cage-cleaning easy
  • keeps cats exercised and entertained
  • encourages natural behavior
  • provides enrichment for quarantined cats
  • send scratcher home with kitty to ease stress
  • add Stretch and Scratch to your shelter’s “wish-list”
  • get scratchers donated by shelter supporters

Spirit Essences: Holistic Remedies for Animals

Every Shelter of the Month receives
a 32 oz. bottle of Stress Stopper.

Stress Stopper is formulated for all animals, not just cats.  It helps animals feel grounded and protected, which makes it great for the occasional, short-duration stresses that an animal faces: trips to the vet, thunder and lightning, fireworks, parties, vacuum cleaner, lawnmower, machinery, visitors and house guests, vacations (if the animal is boarded or has a pet-sitter), unusual noises (remodeling, construction, roadwork, etc.), arguments with other animals, repairpersons.  It is also good for animals who are left home alone all day, to prevent boredom and stress.

As you can see, Stress Stopper is an all-around remedy, which has made it one of the best-selling remedies in the Spirit Essences line.

    Big congrats (or, is that concats?) to Tabby’s Place! :)

    How does a shelter/rescue group get in the running to be a future winner???

    1. Holly   May 11, 2013 at 6:31 am  

      I, too, wish to know how to suggest a rescue shelter for this. Does anyone know?

  6. Deb Stransky   May 7, 2013 at 3:17 pm  

    Please consider the Blind Cat Santurary In NC as the next shelter. I think they do a wonderful job for not only blind cats but also FIV and feline leukemia cats.

    How do you apply for “Shelter of the Month?” I cannot seem to find anything.

  8. Alexander   May 10, 2013 at 8:05 am  

    Thank you.We see you in Russia.

  9. Team Cat Mojo   May 10, 2013 at 1:36 pm  

    Hey people! — thanks to all of you who are asking about being a future Shelter of the Month. I can tell that so many of you are incredible souls, so closely involved with all kinds of heroic work for cats in need. So I asked Jackson about how to become a Shelter/Month. (Full disclosure here: I have no say in the process whatsoever. I just receive the info and put together the announcements about it for you.) So anyway, I did ask Jackson about it, as well as the person I get the Shelter/Mo. info from. But unfortunately right now, there is no clear, official path to submitting nominations for being a Shelter of the Month. So what I would say is: probably your best bet is to suggest a shelter by tweeting @JacksonGalaxy and posting on Good luck. And please know that you are truly incredible people for the life-saving and life-enriching work you do for cats! – Toast (“Team Cat Mojo”)

    I need your help, please help….I understand Jackson doesn’t reply since he doesn’t know my cats, But I have a problem and if there is any way he could help that would be awesome. Im a cat lady having 4 cats, one for 8 years, another for 7 and the other two for 4 n ,3 years.. BT I’m at the point were I’m going to have to get rid of the two youngest due to peeing all over my house, one of them I gt when she was wild, n if I have to bring her to the pound she wouldn’t get adopted out..I love my cats so much n have tried everything I can think of to get em to stop n not thing has worked!! I just had a baby n don’t want that smell to affect the baby. They were peeing before I had the baby as well, I hope you can help I don’t want to get rid of them but I might not have an option, I don’t know what else to do. Please help me, I love my cats dearly n would do anything for them …I was trying to find out how to apply for your show but didn’t find anything….PLEASE HELP Ive been putting up with this for over a year now n don’t know how much more me n my family can take


We regret that Jackson does not answer questions posted in the comments. This is due to his demanding schedule and the high volume of requests he receives. But most importantly, since he has not met your cat, it would be contrary to his approach for him to give specific personalized advice for your specific situation. That being said, general questions and issues are addressed throughout this blog, in his book Cat Daddy and of course, the show My Cat From Hell.
