RAPS Cat Sanctuary Visiting Hours

Sundays 1-4pm

Due to fluctuations in COVID rates in the province, we have taken the difficult step of temporary closing the RAPS Cat Sanctuary to non-essential visitors again. We know how meaningful visits are for so many individuals and families and we hope to reopen to the public again safely … and as soon as possible. We will keep you updated as changes occur. Thank you for your understanding and continued support!

When visiting the Sanctuary, please follow these rules to ensure a happy, safe experience for you, your family and the feline residents. THANK YOU.
