Charting impact

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

Our goal is to increase spay/neuter awareness, and to find responsible adopters for our rescued cats.

We will continue to spay and neuter every animal prior to it being adopted. We will continue to offer spay/neuter assistance to the community. We will continue to trap, neuter, return feral cats and barn cats.

We have a team of dedicated volunteers who foster the cats and kittens we rescue. We also have a large group of donors through social media, and local businesses, that frequently donate. Our cat lounge is our primary fundraising tool that allows us to continue to pay our debts in a timely manner, allowing us to continue a amicable working relationship with our veterinary partners. Our access to funds and ability to acquire new foster homes and lounge volunteers are what makes our organization successful in its mission.

We have spayed/neutered over 715 cats in 3.5 years (June 2020-Dec 2023).
