We here at ILRA have a huge love for black cats. So we are especially fond of Crash, the black cat that today’s group is named after. He was also hit by a car and left to die, just like our own O’Malley, and we understand how hard that can be. So it is our pleasure to support Crash’s Landing Cat Rescue and Placement Center and all the awesome kitty cats they have saved through their hard work and dedication.

About Crash’s Landing Cat Rescue and Placement Center
Crash’s Landing is a non-profit, no-kill, cage-free cat rescue and placement center. We opened our doors in Grand Rapids, Michigan on October 21, 2002. Since then, we have been taking in unwanted, abandoned, and neglected cats and giving them a second chance. We do not take in owner surrenders or kittens under 6 months – instead we focus our efforts on getting adult cats off the streets. In our short existence we have had over 2800 success stories (and counting!).
Crash’s Landing was founded by veterinarian, Dr. Jennifer Petrovich. Dr. Jen is a wife, mom and non-stop miracle worker for some 240 cats at any given time. Crash’s Landing is Dr. Jen’s dream and 190+ non-paid volunteers help to insure that her dream stays a reality. Our volunteers staff the shelter a minimum of 12 hours each day, 365 days a year. Crash’s could not exist without this dedicated group of people.
Crash’s Landing is actually a two shelter operation. Crash’s Landing houses over 125 adoptable, healthy cats. Big Sid’s Sanctuary is the Midwest’s largest FIV/FeLV rescue shelter. Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (similar to HIV in humans) and Feline Leukemia Virus are viewed as automatic death sentences at the majority of shelters and humane societies, but not at Sid’s. Through education, we hope to put an end to the stigma that surrounds these diseases. Big Sid’s provides more than 110 “Sid’s Kids” all the comforts of home. The immune systems of these cats may be more fragile than their “normal” counterparts, but they can still live long, happy lives when given the chance.
Crash’s Landing is a 501c3 non-profit shelter. We do not receive any Federal or State grant monies to run our programs. We run solely on donations and sponsorships from caring individuals who believe in our cause. At Crash’s our motto is “saving our little corner of the world, one cat at a time”.
