As an advocate, you are the voice for cats! You are educated about cats and their needs, you spread awareness about community cats, and are a source of knowledge and advice for your community. You fight for humane laws and policies for cats like Trap-Neuter-Return, and you interact with and educate the public and elected officials at all levels. Your advocacy creates better, safer communities for both cats and people.

Alley Cat Allies can help you advocate successfully and make a positive impact for community cats. We have the information, advice, and tools to help you expand and succeed in your advocacy.
