When most people envision their dream wedding, they picture an elegant location, perhaps with an ocean view or some other picturesque scene. For Dominic Husson and Louise Veronneau of Canada, their dream wedding site was a bit different: The couple chose to get married at Cat House on the Kings, the largest no-kill animal sanctuary in California.

Located in Parlier, California, Cat House on the Kings is home to more than 1,100 cats. The cats roam freely about the property, and most are up for adoption. Until the cats find their ideal homes, they can live comfortably at the sanctuary with no fear of being put down because of illness, injury, or the length of time that they spend at the sanctuary.

Because the cats roam freely and many people visit the sanctuary, the cats are quite used to interacting with people. In fact, they were comfortable with the wedding ceremony, even if the bride and groom had wedding-day jitters themselves. cat wedding ii

Veronneau had first visited the sanctuary in 2012, and was impressed with its mission. She vowed to make a return trip, and when she and Husson, who had been dating for three years, decided to get married, the sanctuary seemed the perfect location for the special ceremony.

Lynea Lattanzio, who founded Cat House on the Kings, even officiated the wedding. Surrounded by four-legged friends, the couple became husband and wife. While every day is memorable, we’re certain this is one day that they will never forget.
