    Where do the cats in our rescue come from?

    ​The majority of our cats come from our local shelters. The shelters have reached out for our help because the cats were sick, injured, considered unadoptable or had been at the shelter for a very long time.

    Making a Donation

    Our program is run completely off of donations and foster homes. Without them both, we wouldn’t be able to save all of these wonderful kitties. We do not have a facility to hold our animals, so they stay in foster homes until they are adopted. The more foster homes we have, the more lives we can save.

    Feeding Feral/Stray Cats? Know Someone Who Is?

    Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the humane approach to controlling community cats. Euthanasia does not need to be the answer. The cats are humanley trapped, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, ear tipped, then returned back to their colony and caregiver to live their lives outdoors.

    Why does TNR work better than trap and kill?

    TNR is proven to work better than trap and kill. Trapping a cat, taking it away from it’s colony, and killing it, only starts a vacuum effect. The cats are in that area for a reason. There is a food source. Whether it be dumpsters, a caregiver feeding them, mice, etc. The food source can only feed so many cats, and as you take cats out of that colony, more cats come in to fill their spots. Then they mate and the problem becomes worse, thus creating the vacuum effect.
