Your contributions save lives.

Whether you donate online, at the lounge, or in any of the other ways listed below, your contribution helps homeless cats of Western Pennsylvania find their forever homes. Rescue and Relax is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and your donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law.

Other Ways to Donate

Donate through Payment Apps

Donations come immediately to us and allow us to cover what's needed most, whether we're in need of food, veterinary care, or daily supplies.

Our rescue is run by volunteers so the donations we receive go exclusively towards the care of our kitties and the upkeep of the cat lounge.

Employer Matched Donations

Check with your employer to see if they offer donation matches. Different employers have different methods and systems for processing charitable donations from your paycheck.

You get to choose the amount and frequency of donations and your employer may match a certain percentage of your donation. We will either receive a check in the mail each quarter or the donations will be instantly transferred to our bank account.
