Adoptable Cats: Can you help Francesca find a home?

Francesca—aka “Frankie”—was abandoned on an Atlantic City porch, crowded into a tiny carrier with her kittens on a hot day. Frankie has been a wonderful mom, but now she’s ready to go solo—this young, playful, affectionate, cat prefers the company of grown-ups and would love to be the queen of your one cat home.

Looking Back on Katrina
Hiding Feral Cat

Alley Cat Allies has promoted humane cat care in the Greater New Orleans area for 20 years, so when Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005, we were right there on the ground rescuing cats. In 2008, we received the Friendship Key to the City for our efforts, but our lasting reward has been seeing services for feral cats expand since Katrina and the lives of cats improve in New Orleans.

Update Promising Progress at Brigham Young University and Provo
Campus Cat

When we learned that Brigham Young University (BYU) planned to use its campus cats as part of a research program, you helped us tell them that Trap-Neuter-Return is the humane way to go. Now the Provo City Council has changed the city ordinance to allow for TNR and we are asking BYU to implement a Cats on Campus TNR program that would serve as a pilot program for the city of Provo.
