    he original brochure for the ranch started out by saying, “Who has not had the urge to visit a ranch in the old West where one can enjoy western life to his heart’s content; where the glorious beauty of the wilderness will bring health, happiness and peace; where fascinating desert scenes, the tang of the mountain air, the smell of the pines, and the spell of the starlit skies mean forgetfulness and freedom from the mad pace of modern life! El Rancho Robles, a glorified ranch in the most beautiful section of Arizona, will make these dreams come true for you.” – El Rancho Robles pamphlet, circa 1930
    Hermitage No-Kill Cat Shelter
    The Hermitage Cat Shelter is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 organization supported entirely by donations. We are dedicated to the shelter, protection, and care of homeless cats, especially those that are often not considered adoptable by other organizations. We are an adoption facility and long-term sanctuary for those felines considered “adoption-challenged,” including felines who are FIV or FeLV-positive or have other types of chronic health issues. All of our kitties roam free within 9,000 square foot of outdoor/indoor living space.

    To advocate for homeless cats in our community by:

    •Actively seeking permanent, loving homes for the cats in our care
    •Providing lifelong care to those cats who for behavioral or medical reasons are unable to be re-homed
    •Educating the public about responsible companion animal guardianship
    •Adhering to the principle of “no-kill” in that no cat in our care will ever be euthanized to make room for another. Nor, will any cat in our care ever be destroyed except in cases of terminal and painful illness or when compassion demands it because there is no reasonable alternative.


    Our vision for the future is that:

    •Every cat is spayed/neutered and is cared for in a loving home by a responsible guardian
    •People treat animals as the sentient beings they are, ensuring that they are neither exploited nor harmed
    •Educating the public about responsible companion animal guardianship
    •The Hermitage Cat Shelter is a world-class organization, providing sanctuary care for cats needing temporary or permanent shelter, and promoting the innate value of all animals
