CENTRAL PURRK: MORE CATS, LESS CAFÉ. Exciting news! Central Purrk and Zoomies are restructuring to become one, allowing us to expand our rescue efforts under a nonprofit umbrella.
Central Purrk has become its own rescue and retail, not affiliated with any outside partners or groups. Our resources are focused on adult cats, as they are the ones who languish in shelters as the kittens beside them are adopted quickly. They deserve our dedicated time and attention.
“So where do you get your cats?” We bring them into rescue from a number of situations. It never fails, they just show up. Whether they’re pulled from a municipal shelter or surrendered by caregivers who find themselves unable to keep them any longer, we promise to give them the best chance of a lasting placement. All cat lovers know you don’t pick a cat; the cat picks you.
So what happened to the coffee shop? After being open nearly a year, we learned visitors were more interested in the cats than gourmet coffee. We’re clearing out equipment and making room for more cats to enhance the experience and provide more comfort for the kitties we rescue. We’ll still offer drip coffee, hot tea, hot cocoa, but no fancy barista drinks or pastries.
We’ve learned a lot from this experience and are continuing to grow. Please bear with us as we implement these changes. As the transition happens, Zoomies, 1704 E. Main Street, will be open and operate as normal. Central Purrk, 1706 E. Main Street, will be closed for a quick remodel. Zoomies gift cards will still be honored. We know this is confusing and hope to make this quick! We thank you for your continued support.
