How to save a kitten or cat in your community

Reasons to Give

We use your donations wisely.


When you give to Alley Cat Allies, you’ll be helping protect and improve cats’ lives!

Out of every dollar we receive, 87 cents goes toward educational and outreach programs, well over the 65 cents that watchdog groups indicate charities should spend on program expenses, with only 7 cents used for administration, and 6 cents spent on fundraising. Alley Cat Allies is very proud of these figures!

It’s a sound investment.


Since 1990, Alley Cat Allies has been a global leader in the movement for humane treatment and protection of cats. We save cats impacted by dangerous laws, natural disasters, and more.

As a 501(c)(3) organization, all contributions to Alley Cat Allies are tax-deductible as allowed by law. We have a Four Star Charity rating from Charity Navigator, we are a GuideStar Platinum participant, and provide transparent reporting.
