The Goathouse Refuge, Cage-Free Cat Sanctuary

Siglinda Scarpa, founder of The Goathouse Refuge

Many wonderful animal rescue groups have gone unnoticed. Today we have chosen the Goathouse Refuge to accept the fund we raised through the Save Meow Project (we donate 5 cents for every comment you make on LoveMeow.com) and we would like to share their stories with all of you. Thanks Licia Grainger for referring this lovely organization to us. The Goathouse Refuge (located in Pittsboro, North Carolina) is a no-kill animal sanctuary dedicated to providing cage-free care for cats regardless of age, medical issues or disposition until a permanant loving adoptive home can be found.

All the rescues can roam freely all day except for the sick cats who are taking medication and the new arrivals who are temporally caged until they are vetted and ready to transition into the population as a whole.

Who is the hero behind the organization? Let’s hear the story from her, Siglinda Scarpa, founder and primary benefactor of The Goathouse Refuge.

When I was a little girl my father, who sometimes worked late at night, came home with a little gray tabby cat wet and cold and put him under the blankets in my bed. I warmed him up and kept him on my heart until he started purring and for the rest of the night. There was where he slept for the rest of his life. I called him Muci.

He’d become sick when he was just about one year old and all my bicycle trips to the veterinarian didn’t save his life. The pain of his death was so devastating that I started to bring home and care for as many cats as my mother would allow me to bring into the apartment. I loved animals, especially cats, and many shared my life. Many are not here anymore, but I remember them all.

So I formulated a dream … a dream of a sanctuary for cats. This would be another chance; a safe haven for cats that were dispossessed or scheduled for euthanasia by public shelters. In my dream, no cat would be euthanized unless it was suffering with no hope of recovery. The Refuge would be a place where even cats that were unadoptable could live in comfort, with the care, attention and love they deserve. No cat would be refused due to age, illness or disposition.

Goathouse Cats -All at attention

The ultimate goal for each cat would be adoption into a loving home. But the Refuge would be designed so that they could spend ample periods of time living comfortably, awaiting adoption. In fact, it would be designed so that a cat could spend years, or its entire lifetime, at the Refuge. This meant that the cats would be cage-free. Groups of cats would live in large rooms, where they could roam and play without restraint. And, of course, all of the cats would be given human attention and interaction, along with high-quality food and on-site medical care.

Day by day my dream is unfolding. Though still in its infancy, The Goathouse Refuge has placed many cats and kittens in forever homes and more then forty are permanent residents here. One building has been dedicated for their home and more construction and improvements are planned. The Refuge was founded with my personal resources and with income from my pottery, I find a way to feed and care for all the creatures in transit and in residence. Along the way some immensely valuable friends and volunteers have joined the Refuge.

In order to carry on fulfilling her dream, Siglinda has dedicated her life to the animals. You can check out this beautiful cat sanctuary at their facebook page or their website.

Trevor may be the most laid-back cat at the refuge. He enjoys walking along the fence catching the rays of the sun, or lounging around the studio on his back, legs akimbo. He enjoys being held like a child, on his back, you name it. Belly rubs? He loves 'em.

Cookie (also known as "Crookie" because of her bent tail) is an extremely sweet and gorgeous cat. She came to the Refuge in the summer of 2009 with a litter of kittens and was a very loving mother to her babies.

The Goathouse Refuge completed a 3-acre enclosure for the cats to roam outside earlier this year. “This was captured just moments after we opened the gate for the first time so that our cats could enjoy their new, 3-acre enclosure!”

    Wonderful people, wonderful cats.
    :)

  143. Anne says:

    Have just discovered this wonderful sanctuary, thanks to Love Meow. I would love to find this place, have to find out where Pittsboro is in N.C. I must go there if possible. I live in Kentucky, am familiar with the Cherokee, N.C area, but don't know Pittsboro. Can anyone tell me what part of N.C. it is in? I am so amazed when people are able to do this, I only wish I could also. There is one in Florida that has over 500 cats that roam freely, have beautiful little houses and all the comforts of home. Florida is a little too far away for me, but I may be able to make N.C. God bless you and keep up this wonderful work. We need to find some organizations that will help you. Too bad you don't get funded for every WORD in each comment instead of just each comment-ha. I am just thankful to Love Meow for choosing you and I LOVE this site. Thanks for all you do. Sorry for such a lengthy comment.

  144. Kris says:

    Awwww this is so sweet. I love the video with the ginger running around with it's tail all puffed. My baby girl does that when she gets excited too.

    A Dream Come True~~Would Love to do the Same…

    Blessings to You for ALL You Do…

  148. Jill says:

    I have often thought of doing this sort of thing. One day when I have property, I really hope I can help lots of kitties!

    What a wonderful place!!!!! I only wish I could do the same – I have always said that if I won the lottery, there would be a whole lotta lucky kitty babies in SW FL… we have one shelter in my town that is a no-kill, and they keep the cats (and dogs) till someone adopts them…. but they are kept in cages, what a wonderful concept for them to be able to live outside a cage!!!!!! God bless you people and all that you are doing for those wonderful babies!!!!!

    The pictures do not do this awesome place justice. Went to Open House last year..and it was so great and oh so beautiful. Thanks Siglinda for that you do! These kitties are really even more beautiful in person and it is great to talk to the volunteers and to hear some of the stories on how they came to have the kitties.

    So amazing!

  155. Alina says:

    Thank you for making a difference ! These cats are so happy in your care.

    OK, that’s an absolutely beautiful idea, but . . . regardless of disposition? What’s done about cats that bully other cats? I have to go to great lengths to protect my little calico because our other cats pick on her. With so many, how can such measures be taken?

  157. MadGastronomer says:

    And how on earth do they protect that many cats from fleas and ticks, if they’re all allowed outside?

  158. Sarah says:

    What a fabulous place! You folks are amazing.

  159. Nashira says:

    What an awesome place!

  160. If I weren’t overfull of rescued cats of my own, I would be on my way to you right now to pick out a bouquet of fur folks! You have my dream right there, and I am so envious–keep up the good work!

  161. Kit Russell says:

    Aww, what a wonderful place!

  162. cat says:

    thank you to those with kind hearts… this is such a wonderful idea

    Siglinda and all helpers….you are beautiful humans with big hearts, may you be richly rewarded for your love and compassion given to the animals. If only I had the resources to do such (currently feeding nine homeless cats twice a day now that my three beloved dogs have crossed the rainbow bridge).
