Lifesaving FIP Treatment Becomes Available in the United States

Incredible news for cats with feline infectious peritonitis (FIP)! U.S. veterinarians will now be able to prescribe a treatment known to be effective against this fatal illness starting June 1.

Previously, families of cats with FIP had to act in the shadows to get the lifesaving drug compound. Now, it can be obtained through legal means.

ADOPTED! Texas Fire Cats Mona and Rubble Have a Bright Future Ahead

With smoke still choking the air and charred landscape on either side of them, an Alley Cat Allies Rapid Response Team drove directly into the Texas communities most impacted by the historic Smokehouse Creek Fire to deliver lifesaving support for cats and kittens. Now, months after the fire, we’re bidding a happy farewell to two cats we rescued from the disaster.

Rubble has come a long way since he was discovered in a burnt-out trailer during the fires, and Mona, displaced from her home, came out of her shell beautifully in Alley Cat Allies’ care. After treatment for smoke inhalation, experienced foster care, and lots of love—all possible because of YOU—they’re taking the next step to live the long, happy, relaxed lives they deserve.

All of us at Alley Cat Allies deeply thank our supporters like you for helping us save their lives. We hope you’ll join us in wishing Rubble and Mona the best in their new journeys!

We are still working in the areas most impacted by the fires to develop long-term, lifesaving care programs for indoor and community cats. We’ll share exciting updates with you soon!

A Happy Update on a Family YOU Saved

Remember mother cat Aurora and her kittens Boots, Cocoa, Beanie, Mittens, Flurry, and Snowflake? Our grant to Tiny Paws Kitten Rescue in Oklahoma covered the costs of the little family’s care after they were rescued from a kill shelter in January.

Fast forward to today, and they’ve found adoptive homes of their own! Here are the “graduation day” photos of kittens Flurry and Cocoa. Just look at that transformation!

We’re very happy to share this update with you—and we thank you, as always, for powering our work to save cats and kittens every single day.

The Present and Future of Animal Sheltering Must Be TNR

Instead of impounding community cats, animal shelters must re-route them to Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs where they are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, eartipped and microchipped for identification, and returned to their outdoor homes.

If a community cat first stops into the shelter in the process, we call that Shelter-Neuter-Return (SNR)!
