This is strong organization that has helped so many cats in Central Texas...and beyond! From helping FeLV positive cats, fixing strays and helping the caretakers who love them, to changing city animal ordinances to ensure positive change can happen. They are a powerhouse organization with dedicated and compassionate members.

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

Community advocacy. Changing the laws in order to help more animals.

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

Being part of an organization that has such an impact on so many lives - cats and humans!

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

Compassionate and dedicated.

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

help so many more animals!

As founder of this organization I am extremely proud to be part of such a dynamic and growing organization. Shadow Cats greatly impacts the environment by reducing the overpopulation of free roaming cats in the community through Trap,Netuer and Return. We place socialized cats and kittens into homes and remove them from the outdoor street life. Injured and ill cats recieve care and medical attention. We impact our communities by working with city leaders to improve local ordinances that will allow us to fulfill our mission. We assist the public in reducing the stray cat population through education and hands on intervention. Recently- Jan 2010- we assisted a senior citizen who was inundated by the large number of breeding cats around her home. We trapped 35 cats, sterilized and vaccinated them and returned them to their environment. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpLTrvEdPwE She was overwhelmed with joy! She and her daughters did not mind caring for so many cats in her rural home- she just didnt want more kittens being born. Shadow Cats helped both the community, the environment and this kind caretaker in need. For her and the cats, we made all the difference in the world.

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

...seeing the difference we make in both human and feline lives. Knowing that if we did not exist that many lives would be more difficult and that our mission is meaningful. Seeing in the eyes what love and compassion can do.

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

Shadow Cats has the BEST volunteers! Caring, compassionate and kind.

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

...change the world for thousands upon thousands of cats in the central Texas (and beyond)area. Educational tools, land and shelter, veterinary care, hospice care-all would be part of an overall plan to reduce suffering and improve lives.
