Our mission is simple, it is to provide a caring, loving, cage-free home for elderly homeless  cats to live their days out.

Jack's CatShack is a 501(c)3 non-profit  haven for elderly cats.  We provide a home for cats 10 yrs. or older who have been surrendered to our local shelter due to their owner becoming too ill to care for them, their owners passing away or they are just no longer wanted.  They are the hard to adopt out ones, the "less" desirable ones.  We give them a home where they are loved and cared for the rest of their lives

Time to salute mothers. What better way to show your appreciation for your mother than take her to a wine tasting and buy her a bottle of her favorite wine? For those of you still lucky enough to have her around bring her by and she tastes for free. It’s a good excuse to spend quality time with her while doing something that you love (she expects that you know). For those like myself whose mother’s are no longer around to spend that quality time with how about if we tip a glass in memory and salute her? Mother’s are special (you only get one) and this weekends tasting is designed with special wines that I am sure she will love whether they be white or red or even a sparklie. For all you adult children who accompany you mother to the tasting, I’ll help you celebrate and her tasting is on us.
