Global Cat Day is TODAY—October 16! On this international day of action and in the months to come, Alley Cat Allies is fighting harder than ever to end cruelty to cats worldwide. You can, too.

Even though millions of people everywhere love cats and share their lives with them, cruelty to cats is still far too common across the United States and around the world. That’s why we need YOU to join Alley Cat Allies in the fight to end harmful acts against cats everywhere and in any form.

Cats need us to be their voice and their defender, on Global Cat Day and every day.

Visit to see what you can do right now, including:

  • Learn about Alley Cat Allies’ top campaigns against cruelty, from East Bay, California, to the Port of Newcastle, Australia.
  • Learn what YOU can do to help us end cruelty to cats, including advocating for law enforcement and local governments to take cruelty cases seriously as public health threats.
  • Sign and share our pledge. By doing so, you commit to inform yourself on the best ways to fight cruelty to cats and act as their unwavering voice.
  • Spread the word on social media. The more voices we raise, the more impact we have to save cats’ lives. Join the conversation with the #GlobalCatDay hashtag on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
  • Get the gear you need to defend cats. Global Cat Day 2022 educational materials and merch are available in the Alley Cat Allies shop.
  • Make a gift in honor of Global Cat Day. Alley Cat Allies is the global engine of change for cats, and every donation supports our lifesaving work in the courtroom, government halls, and in communities around the world. Every dollar makes a difference.

Only with our compassion and dedication can we protect cats from those who would harm them. You and I believe all cats’ lives have inherent worth, and that they deserve to live in communities that understand and respect them. Together, we can create those communities around the globe.
