Self-Service Help Desk

For local information, the best resource is Alley Cat Allies’ Feral Friends Network. Our network is made up of volunteers who have offered to help people like you, in their community. They can help you find someplace to borrow a trap, provide a list of local veterinary resources, walk you through humanely trapping a cat, and more. So don’t be shy! Request a list of Feral Friends–they are here to help!
