How It Started
In 2018 Celery City Cat Cafe, a nonprofit organization, was formed to bring a cat cafe to Sanford, Florida. However, finding a location was much harder than we anticipated. Finally in early 2020 we found a landlord that agreed to having cats on their property. Then Covid-19 started popping up and we were uncomfortable signing a lease not knowing what the future held. A few months later one of our board members began helping a woman in Sanford with TNVRing a colony of cats she came across. Appointments were hard to come by and most places were booked out for months. In December of 2020 the idea of Central Florida Community Pet Clinic was brought up at our last board meeting of the year. We began looking for a location and found our home here in DeBary, FL. Central Florida Community Pet Clinic is a program under Celery City Cat Cafe's 501(c)3 status.
