PLEASE READ: NEW INTAKE AND ADOPTION PROCESS STARTING IN 2021
We have decided to revamp our entire intake and adoption process. We will no longer be using Petsmart as our adoption center. Instead, all of the cats that we intake will be transferred to local shelters once they have been rehabilitated and are healthy enough for adoption.
A few of our special needs cats will be adopted out directly through us, and their profiles will be located at Petfinder.com.
We will only be accepting sick and injured cats as we have space for them. We will no longer accept healthy cats and/or kittens. We will accept pregnant cats ONLY if we have fosters available.
12-1-2018 - 2-28-2019: We were so lucky to be selected as the nonprofit supported by the Greller Gallery this year! Patti Schermerhorn is an incredible artist and donated a portion of the proceeds of her artwork to Wayward! She is also selling personalized pet portraits.

The Wayward Shelter is Officially Open!
After a year of construction, we were finally able to move our cats into the shelter! Our building features a quarantine room with six large stainless steel kennels, an open area adoption room and an outdoor enclosure where the cats in the adoption area can explore the great outdoors!
|Wayward Whiskers was selected to participate in the first ever Bexar County High School Film Festival! We partnered with the amazing students and teachers of Central Catholic High School to create a promotional video. We hope you like it!|
Wayward Whiskers Cat Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in San Antonio, TX founded in January 2013. We take in stray special needs cats and kittens that may otherwise be abandoned or euthanized.
We accept cats from the public when space is available, as well as pull from local shelters. We provide top-notch veterinary care including any surgeries or treatments the cats may need, and then find forever homes for them. We also are one of the few shelters in San Antonio that accepts FIV positive cats.
Wayward Whiskers operates solely on support from individual and corporate donors. We do not receive any city or government funding.
