About Us

Mad Dogs and Crazy Cats is the first Cat Café to reside in Alliance, Ohio.


MDCC is a unique Pet Boutique and Café which features a

bamboo zen room, jungle themed playroom, and enclosed outdoor patio

where visitors can play and lounge with our resident cats.


At Mad Dogs and Crazy Cats we believe in providing a

unique and rewarding experience for our visitors

while supporting and reinvesting into our community.

Our Mission

Opened amidst the struggles of the COVID-19 pandemic,

our mission is to educate the public about unique breeds of cats

while providing a safe and fun environment for people of all ages

to come play and learn.


New to the Neighborhood

Mad Dogs and Crazy Cats is Stark County's first cat café,

located in Historic Downtown Alliance’s

growing tourist destination on Main Street.

The first cat cafés originated in Asia with the intent

to allow guests of the café to watch or interact

with their ‘house cats’ while enjoying their coffee or pastry.


In the United States, cat cafés have partnered with

cat rescue groups and animal shelters,

using their platform to educate the public about

growing feral cat populations and how they can

support local spay and neuter programs.


At Mad Dogs and Crazy Cats, we will be fostering

and showcasing fully-vetted felines from

Angels for Animals of Canfield

that are ready for new homes.

(Online Cat Profiles Coming Soon!)


Angels For Animals has been providing education

and solutions to the pet overpopulation epidemic

in our region of the United States since 1990.


Mad Dogs and Crazy Cats is focused on

educating our visitors about unique breeds of cats,

the fostering and adoption of lovable cats and kittens,

and helping to reduce the excessive population

of feral cats in Stark county.


Mad Dogs and Crazy Cats is also graced by

the colorful art installation of recycled doors

that encloses our outdoor patio and play area.

The art installation, named The ABC’s of Cats,

was created by several local artists

and Stark County students

by transforming discarded doors into art

and featuring a different breed of cat and its

geographical origin on each door.

As an active partner of Arts in Stark,

Angels for Animals, and Arts for Alzheimers,

we are proud to offer guests an opportunity to

come play and lounge with our resident cats

for only a donation to these wonderful organizations.

Weekly Wellness Events

As a non-profit organization, Mad Dogs and Crazy Cats

will provide self-serve drinks and snacks,

available for donations.


We will also host a variety of community wellness programs,

including Meditation with Cats, Yoga with Cats,

cat-themed Oracle or Tarot Card Readings,

and Pet-Loss and Bereavement Support Groups.

Revitalizing Downtown Alliance

Mad Dogs and Crazy Cats is the newest tourist attraction

in Historic Downtown Alliance where Sherry Groom

and her team of creative entrepreneurs and artists

are using art as a tool to save the historic buildings

on Main Street from decay and neglect

while stimulating our local economy

and revitalizing our beautiful neighborhood.
