The Hervey Foundation for Cats is a no kill cat shelter, and
sanctuary located in the Edmonton area.
Our founder and president, Marjorie Hervey , works for the Foundation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Marjorie has been referred to as the "Mother Theresa" of cats. She is the person who provides the inspiration and drive. There is no doubt that the sick, the homeless, and the neglected felines that she willingly and without reservation devotes herself to, have never felt the warmth, love and compassion that she dotes on every one of them. You will note that the cats are rarely isolated, and they live in a warm familial environment after being acclimatized to live in harmony with our other guests.
The Foundation's Mission is Three-Fold:
- Our First Mission is Rescue. We give each cat immediate medical care. Each is spayed or neutered,
fully vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, tested for Feline
Leukemia & FIV, and rehabilitated physically and psychologically. We find loving homes for those who can be adopted. The rest live out their lives in peace and dignity in our family..
- Our Second Mission is Rehoming finding good, loving and caring homes for those cats that are adoptable. Being a private Foundation our screening procedures are strict to ensure that our cats will receive the best care possible.
- Our Third Mission is to educate people to have compassion and respect for all animals. We promote that an animal is a lifetime commitment -- we advocate early spaying & neutering as a solution to the overpopulation of animals.
In addition, we recommend Micro-chipping of all animals as a means of identification should they stray
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray this cushy life to keep,
I pray for toys that look like mice,
And sofa cushions, soft and nice.
I pray for gourmet kitty snacks,
And someone nice to scratch my back,
For window sills all warm and bright,
For shadows to explore at night.
I pray I’ll always stay real cool,
And keep the secret feline rule,
To NEVER tell a human that,
The world is really ruled by CATS.
