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.
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.
