May Edition

Thanks to the support of loyal donors like you, we've been very busy this month protecting cats around the country. Here are just a few of our current projects and successes:

Organizing Emergency Assistance in Tuscaloosa
Emergency Assistance in Tuscaloosa

Since tornadoes devastated Alabama several weeks ago and left thousands of people and animals homeless, we’ve been coordinating assistance for residents struggling to care for their cats. Alley Cat Allies has donated traps and cat food, and our focus now is on finding barn homes and other safe relocation sites for a number of feral cats. Do you have a suitable location that some of these cats can call home? Volunteers with feral cat experience are also urgently needed to house the cats until relocation sites are found.

Read our press release to find out how you can donate supplies.

To volunteer to house feral cats, or to provide barn homes to displaced cats, contact Alley Cat Allies National Cat Help Desk Specialist Laura Ramos 1-866-271-5534 or alleycat@alleycat.org immediately.

Adoptable Cat: Curl Up with Curly!
Adoptable Cat - Curly

This friendly orange feline gets his name from his funky tail, which arches up over his back, but it could just as well come from his habit of curling up next to you while you use the computer. Curly is around seven years old and enjoys attention from people of all ages. When he’s not sitting in a window catching some rays, he is a loving lap cat with a fondness for chasing feathers. Can Curly curl up next to you?

Rallying for Cats' Lives in Monessen
Rally in Monessen, PA

Since April, Alley Cat Allies has been active in the city of Monessen, Pennsylvania, protesting a trap and kill policy which has already killed more than 30 cats. In addition to reaching out to city officials to educate them about humane solutions, we called on citizens to speak up through our action center and held a rally on site in Monessen to protest this deadly law. Alley Cat Allies continues to work with community leaders and local organizations in Monessen to ensure a humane outcome for the cats!
