House of Broken Cookies is a volunteer organization that rescues and rehabilitates kittens with an emphasis on those with special needs. We consider all our kittens/cats to be special and unique, but some have the added need for special care because of physical and/or neurological trauma, illness, and congenital abnormalities or deformities. We also rescue bottle babies that are struggling to survive. Lovingly, we call our rescue kitties “Broken Cookies”.
We rescue from local city and county shelters but our goal is to work within the community and rescue those that we can before they enter the shelters. Our team puts a strong emphasis on educating the community about kittens/cats with special needs so that they will be better understood and have the opportunity at a happy life in homes of their own.
We foster all these cute kitty cookies in our homes where they are able to thrive and we can better understand their needs. Each will remain in foster care until they find their forever home. Some will be with us longer on their journey and they will receive care, love, and understanding for as long as they are with us.
House of Broken Cookies was founded because some very special kittens we have cared for whom are no longer with us but touched our lives forever. It is in their honor that we continue our work to restore as many “Broken Cookies” to wholeness as possible. After all, a “Broken Cookie” is just as precious as a whole one.
At House of Broken Cookies, we love what we do and we love every single special soul that walks, limps, or hobbles into our care. Cats and kittens with special needs, “Broken Cookies” as we lovingly call them, are at the heart of who we are and why our charitable organization exists: to serve these broken ones who are often overlooked. We have come to see that there is something inspiring about the joy, love, and appreciation for life that these special cats possess. This drives us to fight for their lives and for the second chances that they deserve.
When people consider adopting a cat or kitten, the thought of caring for an animal with special needs may be overwhelming, but the truth of the matter is that these creatures are far more resilient and passionate than their peers; they have learned to adapt to challenges, and more often than not, surprise us with their unique abilities to thrive and overcome obstacles! It is heartbreaking that finding homes for these special cats can take years, but when a placement finally occurs, the lucky adopter realizes what we have known all along….these cats were truly never broken at all!
We understand the reservation…. the fear of caring for these “broken” animals, but encourage you to take the opportunity to meet some of these amazing felines. No commitment is ever expected, but it is our belief that interaction with these special souls is good for all; they will feel seen and heard, YOU will feel the outpouring of love that this world has to offer.
There is love and strength, even in the most broken places. It is our hope that you take the opportunity to meet a cat with special needs at some point in your life; give them the chance to show you the beauty we get to witness every day at House of Broken Cookies….or better yet, make room in your heart and home for one of these special cats.
