Global Cat Day 2021 marks the most critical year to date in the global movement to protect cats and kittens. All over the world, cats face threats to their lives from governments and institutions that are sanctioning unlawful policies to kill and remove cats from the landscape.

Alley Cat Allies calls for the sustainable, nonlethal neutering and returning of cats. Will you join us? Visit to learn how you can fight for cats, in your community and everywhere.

She is joined by her guest Emma Hurst, a member of the Australian Animal Justice Party and the New South Wales Parliament.

Your Voice Has Never Been More Important for Cats

Alley Cat Allies launched Global Cat Day five years ago to shine a spotlight on the life-threatening dangers against cats in many different corners of the world.

Even though millions of people everywhere love cats and share their lives with them, cats sadly are also vilified all too often. In far too many governments and institutions, shallow, narrow, and simplistic thinking about cats and their place in our communities has led to killing as a means to remove cats living outdoors.

Alley Cat Allies is exposing these actions as cruel, ineffective, and unlawful. We CAN stop them.

Your voice has the power to change the world and save their lives. As independent as cats are, they cannot speak for themselves. Compassionate, dedicated advocates must act on their behalf and fight animal cruelty.

This Global Cat Day, stand with Alley Cat Allies as we work toward a world where every cat’s life is valued and protected.
