Tabby’s Place earns coveted 4-star rating from Charity Navigator

Tabby’s Place is the cat’s meow – and America’s foremost independent charity evaluator agrees.

The Ringoes, NJ cat sanctuary has long been recognized and sought after for its world-class care of cats from hopeless situations.

But with a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, Tabby’s Place joins an elite cadre of nonprofits distinguished by strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency. 

This is the first time that Tabby’s Place has earned this top distinction. 

Since 2002, using objective analysis, Charity Navigator has awarded only the most fiscally responsible organizations a 4-star rating.

Charity Navigator’s Accountability & Transparency metrics, which account for 50% of a charity’s overall rating, reveal which charities operate in accordance with industry best practices, and whether they are open with their donors and stakeholders.  

“Tabby’s Place’s exceptional 4-star rating sets it apart from its peers and demonstrates its trustworthiness to the public,” according to Michael Thatcher, President & CEO of Charity Navigator. “Only a quarter of charities rated by Charity Navigator receive the distinction of our 4-star rating. This adds Tabby’s Place to a preeminent group of charities working to overcome our world’s most pressing challenges. Based on its 4-star rating, people can trust that their donations are going to a financially responsible and ethical charity when they decide to support Tabby’s Place.” 

Tabby’s Place has always strived to be a faithful steward of its donors’ generosity. Development Director Angela Hartley states, “we’re gratified to receive this elite rating, and we know we couldn’t have achieved this distinction without our beloved donors’ confidence in us through the years.”

Tabby’s Place thanks its supporters for helping it to shine as one of the most trustworthy nonprofits in the world.

The cats – and the Tabby’s Place family of donors, volunteers, and friends – deserve nothing less.
