King Street Cats Overview
Direct beneficiaries per year: Over 325 cats and kittens that were abandoned outdoors or in empty homes, from area animal shelters, or from families who could no longer care for them.
Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: Be a caregiver, an adoption counselor, assist with fundraisers, or assist with admin.
Geographic areas served: DC/Alexandria metropolitan area
Programs: We have a Pet Food Pantry program for local residents who need help feeding their cats. In this way, we can help keep cats in their homes and with their families.
Our mission is to provide a safe haven until forever homes can be found for the cats and kittens in our care, and to educate and assist the community in regard to cat welfare. We accomplish this through outreach to the local community by providing information on proper cat care, behavioral problems, and medical issues involving cats. We also assist local residents in locating and retrieving lost cats, and assist individuals through the cat adoption process.
We promote spaying and neutering and all our cats and kittens are sterilized and fully up-to-date on vaccinations prior to adoption. We also provide post-adoption support for adopters and anyone else that needs cat care advice. Because we only work in the area of cat welfare .... we know cats!
