SAUK RAPIDS - Some lucky cats and kittens are being saved everyday thanks to a non-profit organization in Sauk Rapids. "Lucky's Place" was started a little over 10 years ago by Jan Hansmeier and her husband. They are a no kill shelter and rescue for cats and kittens.

Hansmeier says they couldn't do the work without all of their volunteers.

Right now we probably have about 25 dedicated volunteers that come and help with the daily needs of the cats and their socialization.  Some just come and play with them.

Hansmeier says they're always looking for more volunteers to come help them out.

She says they're also looking for donations of money to help pay for the cat's vet bills, as well as supplies.

We're always in need of money for the vet care, but with the kitten season approaching if there's somebody out there where it falls on your heart to help us out, we could use kitten food as well as milk replacer and bottles.

She says they usually have 20 to 30 cats and kittens at a time, but that number will probably grow to up to 50 during the spring kitten season.

Hansmeier says she's guessing they've helped save up to 2,000 cats and kittens. She says "Lucky's Place" tends to cater to the cats that are less adoptable than other shelters.
