Success! Thanks for posting your review of West Side Cats. You’ve done the world some good today.


I've adopted two beautiful cats from West Side Cats. I've been in there many times to donate. I have NEVER seen the things the people below are saying. OMG, this place is AWSOME! It's clean, there were two ladies on their hands and knees scrubbing floors by hand! The cats are very well fed and cared for. The vet that they use is MY vet as well...and I love them dearly. Stop by and visit this shelter and see for your... view more

West Side Cats is a terrible shelter. My boyfriend and I adopted two cats there, I adopted an older one he adopted a kitten. They left aggressive animals in the room with disabled, blind, or deaf cats and let it bite, scratch and terrorize them. Kimm is very rude, she called me and my boyfriend dumb and animal abusers, and that we were killing our cats feeding them certain foods. Throughout the visit she insulted me,... view more

The cats in this facility suffer from serious neglect. There is unassailable evidence of the total lack of even nominal health care provided to the cats there. The only thing that matters to Kimm Koocher is taking people's money. The animals get no medical care. If they are sick, they are simply left to die. Kimm makes no apologies for allowing these animals to suffer horribly. She is sadly lacking in empathy f... view more

The poor cats get no real medical care. Healthy cats go in there and come out near death. We adopted a cat who was so sweet, but very ill. We could not leave him there, as we were sure he would die quickly. He needed nearly $800 of veterinary care. He had pneumonia, calicivirus, three types of worms, an ear infection, ear mites, three open abcesses, fleas and ringworm. The poor cats suffer horribly in that plac... view more

The only reason this rescue is still open is because of the internet. It is a terrible facility who do not care for the animals they take in. They are hoarders, both of cats and items. They spend donated money on toys, nice meals, and whatever else they fancy. All the while, the animals get no vaccinations, no medical care. If they are sick, they are left to die. It is an awful rescue that needs to be shut down... view more

terrible condition of cats

This is not an animal rescue. Any cat that comes in gets a bowl of food and maybe a filthy bed and litterbox. These poor animals are so sick, yet will never see a vet. West side cats claims they test and vaccinate, yet many have feline leukemia, distemper and calicivirus. You are charged for the tests and vaccinations, yet they never get them. Three yesrs after adopting my two cats from there, they are still req... view more

This should be called the "no care" facility. The people that run this do nothing but sit and play on the computer, while cats are walking through feces filled litter boxes. They are always crying online telling horrible stories about these poor animals. Most times, the animals die because they get no care at all. Kimm Koocher thinks she is veterinarian, prescribes and compounds her own medications, experimenting... view more

Adopted a cat that needed surgery. This shelter is adopting out sick cats. Should be shut down.

Got our cat from west side. About 3-4 months old and weighing under 3 pounds. Brought her home with worms, conjunctivitis, fleas, a sneeze, and emaciated. Took her to Dr. EBERT for her spay and rabies vaccine. West side told us we could get her the next day (today 12/6/13) at 3:00 we call the vet in the morning they laugh and tell us to get her tomorrow morning. West side calls me at 7pm telling me they picked her up... view more

Well... My Wife and I adopted two 3.5 month old kittens from West Side Cats. UNKNOWN TO US, One had RINGWORM & the other, prior to our knowledge, had all the tell tale symptoms of The CALICI VIRUS!!! After some Googling and a couple hundred dollars spent at our Vet, we discovered that one of the kittens were NOT given their booster shots, while the other one had. We ALSO found out that this CALICI VIRUS woul... view more
