Road Construction on Howell Avenue

Attention: Howell Avenue is currently under construction. Right now, you cannot turn east on to Bolivar from Howell Avenue. It is best to take East Layton Avenue to either South Quincy or South Pine, turn and go north, turn left on to Bolivar Avenue, and then go west to the shelter. There is parking on Bolivar and South Burrell. Another route is to take East Howard Avenue to South Pine, turn and go south on Pine, turn right on to Bolivar, and go west to the shelter.


We are open from 6 p.m. - 9 p.m. on Thursdays and 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. on Saturdays. You can also view our adoptable pets at   voice mail line: 414-727-7877 (PURR).

A sanctuary for abandoned cats and kittens, Second Hand Purrs believes that every cat deserves a second chance at love. While we have several residents in long-term care, our goal is to place each animal in a loving forever-home. Your help ensures our success!
