Samantha and her assistants tour the U.S. in their catified bus with 16 cats, two rats, one chicken, and often a litter of foster kittens. They have found homes for 300 foster kittens. Rock Cats Rescue, the AcroCats’ parent company, is a 501c3 nonprofit focused on saving cats “One Click at a Time” through cat welfare, rescue, and adoption.
