Support Neighborhood Cats!

Since Neighborhood Cats was founded in the fall of 1999, the progress we've made improving the lives of feral and stray cats in New York City and throughout the United States has been inspiring!  
Our work started on the ground in New York City with one colony of cats, then one neighborhood, then the whole city.   Our expertise comes from firsthand experience - we've trapped the cats, fed them everyday for years, and provided shelter on cold winter days.  We know Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) works because we do it!

Now we're a national force on behalf of all homeless cats!  Neighborhood Cats features one of the most popular websites on feral cats in the world.  We've authored the leading instructional manuals in the field, trained and certified more than 5,000 caring people at our Caretaker Training Workshops, produced award-winning videos and worked with the largest animal welfare organizations in the country to promote the compassionate treatment of street cats. 

Please consider making a credit card donation now to help us continue our work!  Now more than ever,  the cats need your help.  Please fill in the amount you'd like to contribute (no commas or decimal points please!) and click "continue."  A secure online form will appear with easy-to-follow instructions.  Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover are all accepted.
