We Won’t Stop Speaking Out for Waconia Cats

In a dangerous and irresponsible move, Waconia, Minnesota, passed a cat leash law—and applied other unrealistic and ineffective measures to cats.

Alley Cat Allies wrote a letter urging the Waconia City Council to oppose these amendments to its ordinance, which added cats slapdash to laws regulating dogs. Unfortunately, the amendments passed regardless.

We aren’t done: We’re going to take action to protect Waconia’s cats—especially community cats, who are at the most risk from the city’s decision.

Our Veterinarian Training Program™ Kicked Off in Saint Kitts

Recently, Alley Cat Allies was on the Island of Saint Kitts educating veterinarians and veterinary students at the Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine on lifesaving Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) for community cats.

Meeting and helping to train the rising generation of veterinarians was beyond inspiring—the future of our movement to protect all cats looks bright.

(Ross University students have a great appreciation for community cats, with active groups focused on community cat care and education on campus. The regal T’Challa, a campus community cat, is something of a legend!)

And that’s what the new Alley Cat Allies Veterinarian Training Program™ is all about; equipping the veterinarians of today AND tomorrow with the techniques, knowledge, and drive to protect cats who live outdoors just as much as those who live indoors. High-quality, high-volume spay and neuter and TNR are the primary focuses of this lifesaving program.

Keeping Families Together™ with a Successful Food Bank in Atlantic County

By supporting no-cost resources for cats, we’re Keeping Families Together™!

Alley Cat Allies helped develop a no-cost food bank for cats in Atlantic County, New Jersey, that has provided tens of thousands of pounds of dry cat food and hundreds of cases of canned food in just the past year. We provide food bank support in multiple communities to help both indoor and community cats.

ADOPTED! Talley Goes from the Edge of Death to a Loving New Home

Watching Talley make biscuits, happy and comfortable, is incredibly gratifying—because not long ago, she faced death in a shelter with a horrible lethal policy.

Alley Cat Allies rescued Talley and provided her with the veterinary care, safe space, and love she needed to recover and show her true colors.

We’re thrilled to announce that Talley recently found her forever home (and immediately relaxed into her new family’s hands!). Our amazing, compassionate supporters are the reason we can save cats like Talley every day, and we can’t thank you enough.

Fire Cats Mona and Phoenix are Up for Adoption

If you’ve been following us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or LinkedIn, you know that Mona and Phoenix are survivors of the Texas Panhandle wildfires.

Now they’re feeling better and have shown their true, incredibly sweet personalities. They’re ready for the next step in their journey—could it be with your family?

Rubble Update after Texas Wildfires

You’d never guess that not long ago, Rubble was rescued with symptoms of smoke inhalation in the aftermath of the Texas Panhandle fires. He’s the sweetest and most chill guy!

Alley Cat Allies took on Rubble’s care, as well as that of other fire-affected cats. That’s on top of providing critical support, veterinary care, and supplies for other indoor cats, community cats, and dogs impacted by the disaster.
