Our cats enjoy roaming free in large rooms in a spacious, ranch home situated on an acre lot, which has an abundance of trees and wildlife. Stay-A-While is a no-kill shelter as we do not euthanize cats except for hopeless health reasons. We are a small, private shelter with approximately 80-100 cats/kittens and we are only able to accept new residents when vacancies become available.

Toby’s Critter Cove Rescue

Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio

Phones: (330) 790-1185

Toby’s Critter Cove Rescue was established in 2020. The year that everything seemed to be falling apart, our one glimmer of hope was starting a passionate program rescuing animals in Summit and surrounding counties. Our motto, no paw left behind, which we live and breathe to ensure no animal goes unloved or uncared for. Our goal is to educate not only our staff, but also the community about responsible animal ownership. In addition, offering a varied level of support structures to ensure the most positive home placement for all our critters.
