Want to support the kitties of Ferndale and the surrounding Metro Detroit area? The Catfe Lounge is incredibly thankful for the wonderful item donations we receive, and the assistance goes a long way in supporting Metro Detroit kitties. Your item donations will directly support cats in foster care, our rescue efforts, and our trap-neuter-return program for feral cats in our region. The Catfe Lounge thrives off of the loving support of cat allies in the Ferndale area and beyond, and we greatly appreciate your consideration for donating.

Please note that we only accept new, unopened items. The Catfe Lounge is directly affiliated with the Ferndale Cat Shelter, and as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, all of your item donations to the organization are tax-deductible.
