Sister Kitten Animal Rescue (SKAR) was founded in 2019. We work to improve animal lives and the public’s perceptions of animals, with a focus on supporting community cats and “outdoor” dogs in Western North Carolina. We rescue and rehome abandoned and neglected animals, provide trap-neuter-return (TNR) as well as support, education and assistance to community cat caregivers, maintain animals in foster care for adoption, provide veterinary care for sick animals, and promote community animal welfare. We maintain animals in foster care for adoption, provide veterinary care for sick animals, and promote community animal welfare. We also respond to weather-related emergencies in the Southeast by assisting with animal rescue and relief efforts.

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) Program

Sister Kitten's primary mission is to provide Trap-Neuter-Return, or "TNR," services in Western North Carolina as it is the most humane and effective method known for managing feral and stray cats and reducing their numbers.

The cats, who typically live in colonies, are trapped and brought to a veterinary clinic. They're then spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies appropriate and eartipped. After they've recovered from their surgeries, the cats are returned back to their colony.

Sister Kitten often assists the caretaker in providing regular food and shelter. Kittens and friendly adults are made available for rehoming through our Adoption Program.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Economically disadvantaged people

Sadly, more often than not, the "feral cats" we spay/neuter are friendly, abandoned pets.

In light of this, we've recruited a number of foster parents and now place our "not-so-feral" cats in caring foster homes, along with a number of owner surrenders and shelter cats. We've also added dogs to our roster of adoptable pets.

In additional to providing food, bedding and toys for our fosters, we also provide more extensive medical care that includes monthly flea meds, microchipping, and deworming as required.

Population(s) Served
Adults
Unemployed people
