WHO WE ARE
Striving to help every homeless cat in West Philly.
We help people who help cats.
WHAT WE DO
Trap-Neuter-Return-Manage (TNRM) is essential to helping the existing homeless cat population and to reducing population growth through sterilization. It has been proven to be the only effective, humane management plan. Outdoor cats are sterilized and vaccinated and returned to their outdoor home, where they are provided care for the rest of their lives by community caretakers.
As an all-volunteer group, we do our utmost to respond to requests to assist cats in need. Priority is given to sick or injured cats, kittens, and cats living in high risk areas where they might become a victim of cruelty. Our volunteers pour their hearts into our rescue mission. Although we have limited resources and rely completely on donations and volunteers, we are dedicated to helping as many cats as our capacity allows.
Fosters are essential to the lifesaving work we do! Fosters give kittens and cats a safe, loving home while we work on finding their forever families. The more fosters we have, the more friendly cats we can save!
Our ultimate goal is to find each friendly cat we encounter the home and family they deserve. We match cats in our care and potential adopters to find the perfect forever home. We match the personality of the cat to the adopter’s home environment to ensure a successful pairing.
Assist Cat Colonies
We assist a vast number of colony caretakers, using TNRM practices to stabilize and care for the health and well being of their colonies. We support these community members who provide meals on a daily basis to these outdoor cats.
Part of our mission is to educate the public about the overwhelming number of stray cats in Philadelphia, estimated to be over 400,000. We do this through social media posts, direct outreach, and involving community members, such as block captains, to make people aware of low-cost or no-cost spay and neuter services in the area. We stress the importance of sterilization of both indoor and outdoor cats to improve the cat’s health and to reduce the homeless population.
