The KG Animal Sanctuary

Kimmel Gnomes is working toward building an animal sanctuary with emphasis on providing lifetime sanctuary for hopeless cats on death row at the local shelter. We've had a great many setbacks in recent years due to the economy but still we move forward. We have never been in a position where our loyal customers can visit with us when they come to the Black Hills and that is also something we would like to do at the sanctuary.

We currently house 18 rescued cats. They live indoors with us and have 3 outdoor enclosures they can access 24/7. We love them with all our heart. They will never know hunger, loneliness or human cruelty again. We donate and dedicate our lives freely to do this work.

We would like to take this opportunity to Thank all our customers for continuing to support us over the years and in doing so move us closer to our goal. Here are some of our beloved kitties enjoying their new forever home with us.

Kind Regards,
Kimmel Gnomes

Beautiful bouquet from Lifetime Friend Animal Sanctuary. My kitties love the bouquet and so do I. Thank You from the bottom of our hearts.

'Jackson'. Will only allow 1 person to go near him. He has his coat clipped twice year to help him maintain his beautiful Himalayan coat. Note what we use for outside litter boxes. Works great.


Our Kitties enjoying themselves in the cat run. Have planted catnip, grass, Nasturtiums. Beginning to kick in.




This cat run connects 3 enclosures and I also built 2 overhead enclosed bridges that attach to the house for easy coming and going night and day.
