Tabby’s Place hosts opening of Quinn’s Corner


Tabby’s Place: a Cat Sanctuary will host the grand opening of Quinn’s Corner, an expansion for a unique class of cats, noon-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 7.

When you meet the cats of Quinn’s Corner, you’d never guess there’s anything “different” about them. Cheerful Charles is a marmalade comedian, while snuggly Sammy is the queen of hugs. But each of these cats lives with feline leukemia virus (FeLV), a diagnosis that leaves them with few options.

For 20 years, Tabby’s Place has been the world’s haven for cats in hopeless situations. Yet FeLV is so easily transmitted and poorly understood, not even Tabby’s Place had the capability to house these cats.

That changed with the opening of Quinn’s Corner, which expands Tabby’s Place from 7,000 to 12,000 square feet. Meticulously designed to meet the needs of FeLV+ cats, the expansion is a haven of hope and happiness for the “final frontier” of desperate felines. Already, numerous FeLV+ cats have been adopted, proving that nothing is impossible with love.

The grand opening, which coincides with Tabby’s Place’s 20th anniversary, will include tours, visits with the cats, vendors, refreshments, and activities for all ages. Admission is free.

This is a costly labor of love, and Tabby’s Place survives on public giving, receiving over 90% of its support from individuals.

Tabby’s Place, located at 1100 Highway 202, Ringoes, N.J., is a registered nonprofit with a four-star rating from Charity Navigator.
