is a 501c3 Non-Profit assisting homeless cats and dogs in Charles City, VA.

We have always had multiple cats, dogs and chickens on our 30 acres of land.  But 2009 changed expanded our view!

2009 we fostered 2 kittens for a local rescue.  We became foster failures and adopted the kittens, Shannon and Riley. They are still with us!  We continued fostering kittens and adopting them to loving homes. Well…at least 95% of them. For those that were not adopted, they remain here as permanent residents at our home!  We then started helping cats in our area and blossomed from there!

Kitty City was developed over a few years.
- 2012 we established an outside cat enclosure with 5 living areas, including a heated Cat Cottage, which are all connected by tunnels.  About the size of a 1 bedroom apartment!
Same year built the Cat House for  “free roamers” which is also heated.
- 2020 thanks to donations we added Free Roamer Satellite Houses for added comfort diversity!

MayGo Hound Haven was established!
- 2014 we rescued 9 hound puppies from a local hunter that could not take care of them. All but one puppy was eventually adopted.  The puppy that was not adopted,  Cato is still with us!
- 2019 A few months later we rescued 9 adult hound dogs that were starving and abandoned.   To take them in we had to build a large semi-enclosed kennel for the dogs.   With generous donations from of our friends, their new home gave them protection, care, love and socialization they never had before!

Our mission now is to assist the Charles City County, VA Municipal Animal Shelter by paying for cats & dogs spay/neuter prior to adoption and more!  Over the years we have assisted and rescued 300+ cats and dogs needing help and forever homes from the Charles City County, VA Municipal Animal Shelter!!
