July 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:

Adoptable Cats: Befriend a Barn Cat
Adoptable Cat: Nadia

Looking for the adventurous, outdoorsy type? Ten beautiful barn cats from our Atlantic City colony are in need of barns or other outdoor homes, alone or in pairs. These frisky felines are adept mousers and love to chase toys, but they’re happier outside than in. Some can be petted—like Jason, a rambunctious one-year-old domestic short hair who loves palling around with other young cats—and some prefer to keep to themselves—like the striking Nadia, a shy little black and white beauty. Our barn cats are all different, but all of them would appreciate your care. Can you give a home to a cat who adores the outdoors? If you’re in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware or otherwise nearby, Alley Cat Allies will work with you on transportation.

Did You See Us On The Daily Show with Jon Stewart?
Becky Robinson on The Daily Show

We seize every opportunity to protect cats, so we jumped at the chance when Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart invited Alley Cat Allies and our president Becky Robinson to appear in a taped segment, which aired on July 11. We had fun with correspondent Aasif Mandvi, but we also shared an important message with the Daily Show’s 1.5 million viewers—that humans are the true cause of wildlife decline, and that cats are a natural part of the environment.

National Feral Cat Day

This National Feral Cat Day, we’re encouraging Americans coast to coast to show their compassion for cats by holding an event in their community—our goal is 250 events, with at least one in each state! For the first time ever, we’re offering awards to help your organization put on a successful event to raise awareness and help cats locally.

Grassroots Organizing for Humane Care in Monessen
Grassroots in Monessen

Earlier this year, 30 cats were killed in Monessen, Pennsylvania, after the city passed a deadly catch and kill ordinance. In the wake of this cruel tragedy, Alley Cat Allies has been helping citizens organize grassroots support for a new, humane ordinance. Our goal is a law that will protect outdoor cats and pave the way for Trap-Neuter-Return. Last week, our advocates met with the community to provide support and direction as citizens seek humane policies for cats.

Alley Cat Allies’ Spay/Neuter Clinic Study
NOVA Clinic Cat

Thinking about starting up a spay/neuter clinic as your National Feral Cat Day project? We recently translated findings from our own spay/neuter clinic in Northern Virginia into accessible, easy-to-read (and explain!) graphs that illustrate what a high-quality clinic model can do for cats in your community. Our results matched published findings from clinics nationwide—feral cats are healthy and more than 98% of cats entering clinics can be safely returned to their homes outdoors.
