SNAP Cats is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue and care of special needs cats. We were founded in 2013 and have grown to be one of the most well respected special needs rescues/sanctuaries in the World. With facilities in Santa Rosa and Sebastopol, and rescue partners all around the world, SNAP Cats is devoted to saving special needs, senior (15+), FIV+ and FeLV+ cats who would otherwise be euthanized. Since 2013, we’ve rescued and placed more than 600 (and counting!) special needs cats into warm, loving homes. (Tax ID: 46-2399499)

Lukie House

Dedicated to Leukemia-Positive Cats & Kittens

SNAP Cats is very excited to announce plans to open Lukie House, a facility dedicated to FeLV+ cats and kittens. SNAP Cats currently has a small FeLV+ habitat in our Santa Rosa facility, but with the high demand to rescue leukemia-positive cats and kittens, we’ve decided to build a separate and spacious facility to meet that demand.

About Us


SNAP Cats is dedicated to the rescue and care of special needs cats.


Animal shelters around the world are full. The first cats to be killed are special needs, seniors and those deemed “unadoptable.” That’s unacceptable.

Founded in 2013 by Darryl Roberts, SNAP Cats is a unique rescue and sanctuary based in Sonoma County, California. With campuses in Santa Rosa and Sebastopol, SNAP Cats rescues special needs cats from all around the world, houses them, then finds them warm, loving homes. We believe, if given time, that ALL cats can find the home that they deserve.

Every one of our SNAP Cats, regardless of special needs, age, or temperament, is available for adoption. Those who are not adopted are able to live out the remainder of their natural lives here, in a peaceful, healthy, serene environment.
