Our Mission

Cat Guardians is a no-kill, cageless shelter for cats in Lombard, IL. For over 30 years, we have matched abandoned and stray street cats with loving families, and provided a permanent home for cats that have not been adopted due to age, medical conditions or socialization issues. We're funded entirely by your generous donations and staffed entirely by dedicated volunteers.
