Mission

The mission of our group is caring for the homeless cats (feral and adoptable) of Union City, NJ and adjacent towns through TNRs, vaccination, veterinary care, and adoptions. We care for the homeless cats as much as we care about our families. In doing this, we will always have zero administrative fees (all funds are used to help the cats), 24/7 open records (all our income, expenses, and receipts are available 24/7 to everybody at www.tinyurl.com/ucfccincomeandexpenses and at www.tinyurl.com/ucfccreceipts), and none of our volunteers has ever been paid or will ever be paid for anything. Simple: Absolutely 100% of donations are used to help the homeless cats.

What we aim to solve

North Hudson County, NJ has one of the highest population density in the US. As a result, it has a huge number of homeless cats without a shelter or programs (TNR, food) to care for them. Our group was founded to address those problems.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Care for the badly served homeless cats of North Hudson County, NJ and address its lack of a shelter.

1. We wrote a world class 221 pages report (available in our web site, www.ucfcc.org) in which we proved to the local official that homeless cats problems can be solved by simply copying the practices from Secaucus and NYC and by spending $20 per year per resident in animal care.

2. While we persuade local officials to implement the recommendations of the above report, we care for as many homeless cats as we can and identify volunteers to help us.

Most of our 250+ volunteers are professionals and grown ups. See 221 page world class report in our web site (www.ucfcc.org) as an example of our work.

Officials from Union City, NJ have implemented some of the recommendations of our report, including $100,000/year in additional spending to help the cats. In 2020 we placed 116 homeless cats in homes, in 2021 we placed 107.
