We have noticed some feral cats roaming our neighborhood. After some research, I came across Central TX Feline Rescue online and found they had a lot of resources and tips. I emailed Elizabeth, the founder, and she let me know that not only would they be able to get the cats neutered and spayed, but they could also provide a volunteer trapper. She has been great to work with. Very responsive, very nice, and has gone above and beyond trying to help me and also providing the best situation for these cats.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

their trapping and caring for the animals. Elizabeth and their volunteer trappers care about these animals and try to put them in the best possible situation.

I became involved with CTFR when I’d taken on a litter of 5 kittens. Elizabeth Brumbaugh, the founder of CTFR, sponsored all 5 kittens to be spayed/neutered AND set up an intake appointment for them at the Austin Humane Society, so that they could be placed through AHS’s adoption program. With a sick cat of our own, the financial relief and support that Elizabeth provided was a BIG help. From there I got to know Elizabeth, the group, and the work CTFR does. The volunteers are wonderfully caring people that are totally dedicated to reducing the number of unwanted cats, and improving the quality of life for feral cats. The volunteers feed the feral cat colonies every single day – rain or shine, 365 days a year! I started volunteering myself. I’ve helped with fundraising events, and I feed some of the colony cats (that I love!) on the weekends. Besides giving their time, some CTFR volunteers choose to provide the food for the colonies they feed themselves, as CTFR operates solely on donations. When I’ve donated monies before to non-profit groups, I’ve checked out how much of the donation goes to “administrative costs” – I want to make sure my money really reaches the group I’m trying to help, and not the people that run it! Well, CTFR has 0% administrative cost. Every single penny that CTFR receives goes to the cats. Now that’s love .

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Helping kittens I've fostered/rescued, and the knowledge I've gained about the trap/neuter/release process. Plus, I've had the wonderful experience of seeing tons of success stories - cats that would have otherwise died become someone's much loved pet.

For several years now I have been helping Central Texas Feline Rescue Trap Spay or Neuter Release and Manage Feral cat colonies in Round Rock and North Austin. This group is such a wonderful asset to the community. With consistant TNR we have reduced the number of feral cats in Round Rock, had sick cats treated and rehomed, eliminated small colonies by rehoming to rural barn settings, helped educate people about feeding cats and given them free options to have them Spayed or Neutered and lightened the food cost burden for many who have become overwhelmed by feeding feral cats. Whether you like cats or not this organization benefits everyone because it prevents the increase in unwanted animals and sick animals on the streets.

The Great!

I first learned of Central Texas Feline Rescue when I moved into a new apartment complex and found 4 homeless kittens there. I began to feed them regularly and I soon discovered that they were not the only hungry, feral cats in the complex. Before I knew it I had begun feeding a large colony of cats - which I knew was a problem. I did some research online and discovered CTFR. I immediately emailed them and by the next week someone was at my apartment ready to start humanely trapping the cats, getting them spayed/neutered, and then returning them to the environment they knew and loved. I came to learn this process was called TNR, Trap-Neuter-Return. I saw first hand the positive effects TNR had on the cat's lives and on the environment. CTFR was able to get the number of cats quickly under control and through caring for the colony these cats lives were incredibly improved. Soon after meeting the amazing and dedicated founder of the organization (and the many other wonderful CTFR volunteers) I also began volunteering. I have not only seen what CTFR can do through being a client of theirs, but have seen what awesome resources they make available to communities and neighborhoods through being a volunteer. Finally - and most importantly - I have seen what this great organization does for the lives of homeless, hungry, suffering feral cats within the community. Through dedication, hard work, and a true love for these animals CTFR addresses the problems feral cats often bring with them and gives the kitties a chance at having a beautiful life.

The Great!

CTFR is a tireless organization helping the Central Texas Cat population live healthier and safer lives. By trapping, spaying/neutering, and returning the cats to their environment, CTFR is helping to control the population and preventing cat colonies from running rampant in communities. The volunteers work with total dedication on limited means, but they always make good things happen.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the shrinking cat colonies (due to their spay/neuter efforts).

I've known the founder of Central Texas Feline Rescue for several years now. I am repeatedly impressed by the experiences with it she relates to me, which show her heartfelt dedication to the purpose of this group. She and the volulnteers are committed to working endless hours, going wherever needed, giving of personal funds and home space to meet the needs of feral cats and educate the community regarding them. Each cat is treated humanely and given the best care possible regardless of its health and injuries. Even a blind cat recovering from other issues was treated and adopted. CTFR has high standards and is careful to place cats only in healthy,caring homes. In adition, this organization is one of the best when it comes to accounting for and stretching donations. Fund-raisers are top-notch and an another example of the overall quality and dedication of the folks at CTFR. Wish I had more money to support their work.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing treatment and care of the cats firsthand. Because of that,I've donated whenever possible. The best part is hearing the success stories...cats with second chances, new homes, or neutered to curtail the number of cats roaming homeless and unwanted.

Last year I had a mother cat and two kittens that often sought shelter on my porch. I wasn't sure how to help them. Central Texas Feline Rescue came and trapped the three cats, they were spade, got a check up and rabies shot and then released back on the property. They volunteers gave me food to feed the cats and encouraged me to feed the cats everyday. I have been doing this ever since and the cats depend on me to feed them. Other cats have come to feed on my porch and with one call the CTFR, the cats were trapped, fixed, and released. CTFR has since asked to me to help trapping cats, feeding colonies in other locations, and transporting cats to the Humane society. Since helping, I have seen how very dedicated and caring the volunteers are. They take great care for all the cat colonies and show a true love and devotion to cats in the area.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Eleven cats that live in the greenbelt behind my apartment have been trapped and released by CTFR and they have provided food for daily feeding for them as well.

CTFR does a great lot for the community/feral cats/kittens in our area. They do TNR (Trap, Nueter & Return) and then manage (feed & etc) many colonies through-out our community. Also take in and find homes for kittens or cats that are in bad situation or that are ill. There are a lot of unselfish people in this group that volunteer not only for the love of the unwanted felines but for the greater good of the community (by helping control the unwanted cat population). The founder of the group is a shining example of how giving some are towards this cause. Not only has she given up her garage, spends HOURS of her time on a weekly basis running TNR but she also spends a lot of her own money helping sick or hungry cats. Not only are there a lot of great people in this group, but it is a GREAT group to be a part of.

When I first started as a volunteer, 6 years ago, I was oblivious to the plight of feral cats. Since then, I have learned that what we are accomplishing has a huge impact, not only on the lives of these animals but the community. Since there are going to be feral cats, we want to keep the numbers down by trapping, neuter/spay, and returning these cats to their colonies. We commit to maintaining these colonies by feeding them and continuing to watch for new ferals that have not been TNR'ed. At times we find tame cats, sick cats or kittens. We try to the best of our ability to rehabilitate them and find the homes. This group is made up of a core set of tireless volunteers that keep fighting the good fight day after day and year after year. We would love to have more volunteers, some of our dedicated people are doing several colonies and it would be nice to give them a break (that is, if they want it).

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

volunteering with the group for fundraisers and feeding feral cat colonies.

Ways to make it better...

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

love to add more volunteers like the current ones. And of course, win the lottery and donate the money to the group for a shelter.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the wonderful feeling of satisfaction I get from helping these poor cats have as good a life as possible. And the wonderful volunteers in the group.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

compassionate, tireless, cat lovers, humane and dedicated.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand into surrounding areas, set up a shelter and pay someone to run it.

Ways to make it better...

we could get more volunteers and we didn't have to deal with people who don't understand the problem. The latter statement is a given. This won't go away completely, but raising awareness could really help.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

again, getting volunteers, raising funds to keep providing food and vet care, and raising awareness.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I am extremely proud to be a volunteer with this group and truly believe we have a made a difference in the community and for the feral cats.

I started feeding for CTFR but as I started to get more involved with the organization I realized what more they do and I was amazed at the dedication all the volunteers have whether rain or shine, hot or cold CTFR makes a huge impact on the population of cats. The volunteers dedicate their time and energy to make a difference in the community. WAY TO CENTRAL TEXAS FELINE RESCUE what would we do without you?

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I happened to be out trapping one night and came across an adorable cat, which we had spayed, I took her home and now she is my sun light on a cloudy day.
