A Cat Café
River Kitty Cat Café 
226 Main St

Only in DTEVV - River Kitty - Copy

At any time, River Kitty Cat Café is home to around 16 cats who are available for adoption. Owned and operated by the Vanderburgh Humane Society (VHS), every dollar spent at the café supports their efforts to care for homeless animals in our community. When a cat finds it’s new family, VHS welcomes another cat from the shelter, making space at the shelter and giving another cat a new audience with hopes of finding a forever home. As of April 2023 more than 1,200 cats have been adopted from the café.
