Alley Cats & Angels cares so much about rescuing cats that it is contagious. Their rescue efforts are incredible, and it is great how they give each cat/kitten a full vet workup, spay/neuter AND microchip. They saved the kitten I adopted from a feral colony where the cats were being poisoned. They made sure that I knew that they were there for me if I had any questions about taking care of him, which made me feel so comfortable since I have never owned a cat before. If I ever decide to adopt another cat, this organization is my first choice.

Alley Cats and Angels is an amazing all-volunteer organization. The volunteers go above and beyond in caring for kittens and cats. The cats in their foster care are loved and well-socialized and people look forward to adopting them. Vets have told clients how impressed the are with the healthiness of cats adopted from Alley Cats and Angels. I have personal experience with the organization as an adopter of two cats as well as a volunteer and rave about the organization to everyone!

Just cannot say enough about this wonderful organization and all they do for the cat population. They have helped me get a disabled man and his colony help with the over population on his property. Over the years they have been able to help kittens dumped at my feral colonies homes. I am so grateful for this organization. I too volunteer for them. You could not go wrong adopting or volunteeeing for them.

This is the best of the best. The kitties are well socialized and exceptionally well cared for. They have a wonderful vet who cares for their kitties needs and makes sure they are healthy. I had researched several organizations to volunteer my time to and chose Alley Cats and Angels for many reasons with integrity being at the top of the list. They do all they can to save as many kitties as they can and treat them all with so much love.

The work these folks do for the feral cat population is phenomenal. They work tirelessly to care for as many kitties as they possibly can. The foster families provide a safe and loving environment for all the kitties as well. There is a lot of work that goes in to each kitty that is placed in their care. They all get quality vet care and are fully vetted, tested, spayed or neutered and microchipped, that within itself is wonderful! I could never thank them enough for all the help they have provided for me and feral cats that would not have had a chance if not for AC&A. So many rescues pull from shelters which is a great thing but this leaves the feral population with very little help and they need and deserve forever homes too. If you or anyone you know is looking for a fur baby I can only say I am sure you would not be disappointed by choosing this group because they really do take excellent care of all their kitties and I for one don't know what I would have ever done without them. Save a life.....adopt.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Do nothing, they are wonderful!

i would like to express my gratitude to Alley cats and Angels for all the help they gave us in getting our colony of cats and kittens under control. They supplied the vouchers so we could get all the adult cats out here spayed and neutered. They took all the kittens, even the ones that needed medical attention , got them well, and found forever home for over 20 kittens. That was in Sept. 2014. The last litter of kittens were born in Oct. 2014, and we have not had any kittens born since. Thank you Alley Cat and Angels, We could not have done this without your help. We also started volunteering during the time ya'll were helping us.

Have been involved with Alley Cats and Angels for almost 2 years now. Anytime I have a question,concern or need I am able to get several members of the group to contact with answers, solutions or a contact to get an animal services or needs met. They run a great organization and have been a asset to the feral cat populations of Wake County. Building shelters,having barns available these ladies go above and beyond for the protection and needs of stray cats in our County. They are smart and thoughtful in their adoptions and truly care for every cat that has been put in their care or services. They are a great group.

Alley Cats and Angels has helped me spay/neuter a lot of feral and stray cats at very little cost to me because I could not afford it. They did not judge me for not having much money, but were helpful and appreciative that I was tyring to prevent more kittens from being born.

They have also taken in some kittens that were born before I could get all the cats spayed. The kittens got great medical care, Alley Cats and Angels make sure the cats have all their vaxes before being adopted, not just the first set. They also work hard to find the right home for the right now. It's not about the number of adoptions with them, it's about the right adoptions.

I've got both my cats from AC&A and two years later they are still the loves of my life. The process of adopting was smooth but still thorough!
