    The number 13 has a reputation for being unlucky, but the 13th annual celebration of National Feral Cat Day® was anything but! This year, Alley Cat Allies mobilized cat lovers to host more than 430 events to advocate for cats—more events than any year in the day’s history. Events were held in all 50 states, as well as in Panama, Mexico, Israel, and Canada.

    In addition to record numbers of Trap-Neuter-Return workshops, spay/neuter drives, education events, and fundraisers, four counties in Florida—Sarasota, Charlotte, Manatee, and Hardee—issued proclamations recognizing the day.

    This National Feral Cat Day® reached tens of thousands of people through events and proclamations—and millions more were exposed to the message. Alley Cat Allies staff made their way to The Today Show plaza in New York City on National Feral Cat Day® to spread the message of compassionate care for cats. They talked with audience members—and even with The Today Show’s hosts—about feral cats. Admiring our National Feral Cat Day® signs, The Today Show co-host Savannah Guthrie said, “It’s a great cause!”

    We couldn’t agree more. Thank you for making this National Feral Cat Day® the best yet!

    Comments Off on Alley Cat Allies Honors Harrington, Delaware with Architects of Change for Cats Award

    DE_AwardRecipients_FINALOn National Feral Cat Day we presented the Architects of Change for Cats award to the city of Harrington, Delaware for implementing a community-wide Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program for outdoor cats.

    The Architects of Change for Cats award is given to communities that have taken steps to help but also reduce community cat populations in a humane way.

    We also presented certificates to key caregivers, volunteers and animal protection organizations that came together to create the TNR program.

    Harrington is a great example of a community working together to implement TNR. The city leadership, caregivers and organizations created the best program for the cats and their community.

    Comments Off on On 13th Annual National Feral Cat Day®, Alley Cat Allies Celebrates with Milestones, Proclamations and Awards for Community Change

    October 16 marked the 13th annual celebration of National Feral Cat Day® with record numbers of Americans registering their support for embracing humane animal control and sheltering practices that protect the lives of community cats.

    This year, more than 430 individuals, community nonprofit groups, spay/neuter clinics, animal shelters and other organizations held events in honor of National Feral Cat Day.

    Every year, the movement to protect the lives of cats grows stronger, nationwide. Hundreds of municipal and private shelters and animal control agencies have embraced Trap-Neuter-Return and abandoned the cruelty of ‘catch and kill’. Communities are seeing firsthand that these innovative programs really work.
