How Can We Help You?
Food for Felines
We offer feline food for owned pets in need or community cats for caretakers who are experiencing hardships.
We offer TNR education to rural shelters and rescues and funding (when available), as well as TNR to colony caretakers of cats to decrease the overpopulation.
We partner with shelters and rescues within the service area to provide outreach efforts with regard to TNR; sponsorship and networking of long-term cats in the system.
We provide emergency medical funding and outreach funding to get owned cats spayed and neutered (as available) to families who are experiencing financial hardships and want to keep their feline pet.
Questions and Answers
Q: How do we apply for help with food or getting cats altered?
A: Please fill out the outreach application under "Apply Now" below and we will try our best to respond to your request within 48 hours. Approval is based on funding resources at the time of your application. If we are not able to help with funding at the time of your application, we will keep you on a wait list or direct you to other resources to help.
Q: Once we get approved, how does the program work?
A: We will contact you at the phone number you provide to discuss in detail. If you are approved for food, we will meet you at an agreed upon date and location. If you are approved for help with medical or TNR, we will make arrangements with you to get your pet or colony cats to an approved veterinarian who has a partnership with us and offers a rescue discount. Funding will be paid directly to the veterinarian or clinic.
Q: Does this cost anything?
A: Approval will depend on your income and will be evaluated by our volunteers/board. There are several factors that are taken into consideration: the need(s) of the feline, resources available, etc. We may be able to help with a portion of the cost or we may be able to fund the entire cost. Your situation will be evaluated at the time of the application as our resources change frequently. However, we will do our best to help you or provide you with other resources. Donations are always appreciated.
Q: Are the services confidential?
A: Our volunteers are professionals with full-time jobs and who are career-oriented and all applications are kept confidential.
Q: I am an employee/volunteer with a rural animal shelter or rescue and I would like additional information about the partnership program. How does that work?
A: One of our missions is to partner with rural area shelters and rescues to provide education on trap neuter return (TNR) programs for community cats. We can schedule a time to come to your area and show you how to correctly and effectively conduct a TNR, offer advice on how to partner with local veterinarians to get discounted services, and/or help with funding resources and education for caretakers.
