What we aim to solve

There are numerous unwanted cats out there that are unfixed and increasing the feral population at an alarming rate. There are also a lot of cats out there with owners who are unable to afford to fix them and thus they are also adding to the increasing population and overwhelming the resources of the owners.

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have they accomplished so far and what's next?

We would like to spay and neuter as many cats, both owned and feral, as we can in order to decrease or at least maintain the cat population in our geographical areas.

We are helping as many people as we can that contact us for help with their own animals, and we are also helping as many people we can with feral colonies that need help to fix the cats. We will help them in all ways that we can, trapping , transporting, subsidising surgery and returning fixed cats to the colonies.

We are volunteer run with lots of volunteers having many years of experience working with ferals. We are able to advise people as to how to TNR cats, and we are also able to, on a limited basis, go out and do the trapping ourselves. We do a very good job of educating people about the benefits of getting cats fixed.

The amount of requests for help that we get on a daily basis will start to decrease.

In 2017, we rescued 587 cats- 37% came from Georgia shelters, including Forsyth, Dekalb and Calhoun county Animal Control facilities and the rest from other rescue groups, owner surrenders, and strays. Each adoptable cat is placed in foster care, where it receives medical care if needed, is sterilized, micro-chipped and receives age appropriate vaccinations. At year end 500 cats had been placed in permanent homes. An additional 360 cats were assisted through our TNR Program. Each TNR cat is sterilized, ear tipped and provided a medical checkup and rabies vaccine prior to release. Over the past five years we have rescued and sterilized over 2,000 cats. Our adoption program has grown from 249 cats in 2013 to 587 in 2018.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
