Lucky Cat Café & Lounge Announces Holiday Activities

Congratulations!  Shamrock is pleased to announce that Lucky Cat Café (2230 Dundee Rd) recently received approval as a 501(c)3 nonprofit animal charity! That means they have the same status as groups like ASPCA, Best Friends Animal Society, and of course, Shamrock Pet Foundation. Their mission is to find homes for homeless and abandoned cats by having them live in a comfortable, homey setting plus a small café that sells coffee, tea and homemade bakery items. Their place is a unique family attraction that has already had hundreds of visitors from all over Kentucky and the US. They are an all-volunteer organization just like we are.

New Residents Don’t Stay Long – Two new Shamrock cats were reported to have moved into the Lucky Cat Café on Friday. Caity-Kat has already been adopted (two days later), and Ashley’s application is pending, but she may be headed to her new home today!  Maggie was also adopted yesterday.  It has been a GREAT weekend!  We love it when a plan comes together…especially when it involves saving lives and placing our animals into new homes.

Please join us for our activities in December.

Lucky Cat Café and Lounge is the only nonprofit hybrid coffee shop and cat adoption center located in the Belknap area.  Come and join us!  Just look for the “Blue House” at 2230 Dundee Road. There are two metered parking spots in front of the building, and free on-street parking just a little further down the block.



Join Us for Cat Therapy.  If you have a friend who has lost their cat in recent weeks or months, bring that person for “cat therapy.” Although it may be too soon to think about adopting another cat, purr therapy goes a long way toward healing a broken heart.

Note from Shamrock.  More than a dozen cats from Shamrock Pet Foundation and Louisville Metro Animal Services will live at The Blue House until they are adopted.  All Shamrock cats have been spayed/neutered, microchipped, and have had all their shots.

Volunteers Needed.  Lucky Cat Café has a team of about a dozen volunteers, and there is room for a few more! If you are interested in volunteering in a Cat Café, check their website: or email:
