Castaway Critters

Our Mission is to save the lives of and provide new beginnings for lost, sick and abandoned companion animals through rescue, rehabilitation, adoptions and spay/neuter programs. Our Mission is to be the help that these animals would not otherwise have.

Castaway Critters, The James A. Hueholt Memorial Foundation for Animals is a local grass-roots No-Kill animal rescue founded by Barbara Holmes and friends and family of James A. Hueholt, who died in 1994 at age 37. Jim rescued and cared for many animals himself. Our work in lessening the suffering of companion animals is a tribute to him and to his love of life.
Castaway Critters has a unique focus on sick, hurt, and special needs animals. We never turn our backs on the ‘hard cases’, and in fact open our arms to them. Our mission is to offer hope and new beginnings to the lost and forgotten, the sick, injured and abandoned animals in our community. We believe every life is worth savings!

We are a volunteer and foster network. We do not have a public shelter. Our rescue animals stay in the homes of our foster caregivers until they find their forever homes. In addition, we do use kennel partners when needed for dogs and community businesses who open their doors and hearts to foster cats.
