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.

Alexandra Umlas won the Tom Park Poetry Prize!
