Saving Outlawed and Unwanted Lives

A Feral Cat Sanctuary

What is SOUL?
​​ Saving ​Outlawed and ​Unwanted Lives, inc. is a no-kill, cage free facility for adult feral cats. It is located on a late 1800s, 5+ acre farmstead among the beautiful rolling hills of Chenango County In New York State.
 At SOUL cats are free to roam large, fenced in, outdoor areas where they have access to heated indoor rooms and many fully insulated outdoor shelters.

 SOUL does not adopt out any of its residents as they are not suited as "pets". SOUL cats have come from near and far and were brought here by caring individuals. At SOUL they can live out their lives in peace and harmony in a setting suited to their lifestyle.​
 Can I visit the sanctuary?
 No, the sanctuary is not open to the public. The sanctuary is located in and around my personal home and property, it is not a commercial building. The sanctuary is not open for visitation, it is not set up to accommodate human traffic. Please understand, this is "home" to feral cats, it is not a zoo where one can visit to admire the animals.
  Can I visit the cats I brought to you?
 No, visiting cats you brought to the sanctuary is not possible. I do understand some people are very attached to the cats they bring to the sanctuary, but once you place cats at SOUL, ownership of the cat(s) is transferred to SOUL.
Do you adopt out your cats, or take in kittens?
​​ No, SOUL does not adopt out any of its residents. .
