"I’m an Alley Cat Ally" Campaign

Alley Cat Allies launched the "I'm an Alley Cat Ally" Campaign to raise awareness about the millions of Americans who care for stray and feral cats in their communities. We are delighted to have wonderful celebrities, like Portia de Rossi and Angela Kinsey, on board to represent the individuals from all walks of life who share compassion for these cats.

Millions of Americans have opened their hearts and wallets to stray and feral cats. A national survey by the respected research organization Harris Interactive found that over 40 percent of Americans have fed a stray cat in their lives, and one out of five has done so in the past year.

You can make the pledge too! Check out our "I’m an Alley Cat Ally" pledge page to see more celebrity allies and our gallery of supporters.

Portia de Rossi is star of the ABC comedy "Better Off Ted." She recently starred as a fifth season series regular on the FX popular original drama series "Nip/Tuck" and starred as 'Lindsay Bluth Funke' in the critically acclaimed Fox comedy "Arrested Development." De Rossi is best known for her portrayal of the enigmatic lawyer 'Nelle Porter' on Fox's hugely successful "Ally McBeal."

"I'm very happy to be involved with Alley Cat Allies and their efforts to help stray and feral cats," said De Rossi. "The Trap-Neuter-Return approach is the only way to help contain the populations and save their lives."
