What RappCats Does


General Assistance

RappCats assists with the spay/neuter, vaccination (including rabies), medical treatment, feeding and adoption of stray, abandoned, injured, sick or homeless cats in Rappahannock County. RappCats also helps with trapping of stray and feral cats, and provides education and information on the safe handling, treatment and care of cats.


Adoption Center

The RappCats Adoption Center is the only community cat shelter in Rappahannock County. It is also the only privately operated animal facility in Rappahannock County that is licensed by the  Virginia State Veterinarian. The RappCats Adoption Center is a cageless, no-kill shelter that accepts adult cats that are capable of being adopted. We feed, shelter, socialize and provide medical care for all cats at the Adoption Center. We strive to find each of them a loving, permanent home, and to maintain a healthy and happy shelter environment until they can be adopted.


Kittens, Nursing Mothers, Feral Cats and Certain Special Needs Cats

Because of their special vaccination and other needs, we cannot presently take kittens, nursing mothers, feral cats, or certain special needs cats into the Adoption Center. However, for these cats RappCats provides foster care, spay/neuter, vaccinations (including rabies), veterinarian care, adoption and other assistance including guidance and education on their care. Please contact RappCats for further information.

We Need Your Help!


RappCats is not affiliated with the County government and relies entirely on the generosity of people like you to support our operations. Please consider supporting RappCats!


We depend on volunteers to run the RappCats Adoption Center, to provide foster care and to help with many other needs. 


Your financial contributions, of whatever size, will help us to continue to provide a safe haven for Rappahannock’s abandoned and homeless cats, and to help Rappahannock County families and senior citizens with spay/neuter, rabies and other vaccinations, veterinarian care, and food for sick, stray or needy cats. Even small donations are important!


We sincerely appreciate your help!
