We adopted Callie (originally named Inara) 4 years ago and it was an awesome experience. We saw Callie's photo on their website and emailed them asking if she would be at their upcoming event so we could meet her. They responded to us promptly and coordinated with her foster parents to make sure she would be there. They take great pains to ensure that each adoption is a good match and they do a follow-up call to make sure there are no problems. One of the foster parents even provided us with pictures taken shortly after her birth. I cannot compliment this organization enough. They provide a great service to the community.

I have been volunteering with Alley Cats & Angels for 3 years. They and the volunteers are the best of the best. They sincerely care about the welfare of cats and kittens. They take on the worst kitten & cat health issues that most other rescues in the area do not. Kittens are fully vetted before being adopted out. AC& A believes in being thorough. Visit alleycatsandangels.org to see what we are all about!

We adopted the blind (mostly) kitten Carlito from Alley Cats and Angels - everyone has been excellent and I can tell loves cats genuinely and tremendously. They are a great force for good in the local area and I would not hesitate to recommend them whole heartedly for donations or cat adoptions.

My experience began when I fell in love with a kitten's photo online. I knew a volunteer who steered me to the web page where I applied to foster to adopt. Alley Cats and Angels had taken my Tucker in from a feral colony behind a pizza place. They knew him and told us he was sweet but skittish. The adoption fee covered so much! He was fully vetted, fixed, even his sharp claws were trimmed. They did everything to give us a good start with our new boy. Six years later he's still a bit skittish but sweet and very much loved. The extra effort they make to get each animal into a permanent home with only volunteers and fosters is amazing.

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.

I was lucky enough to adopt two cats from Alley Cats and Angels several years ago. Becoming familiar with some of the volunteers I saw how dedicated they all were and what exceptional care they took of the cats and kittens. It takes an army to run any rescue organization and this group is not just an army but a band of angels.
What/how they foster these cats to be social, to be in the best home for their personalities is amazing. I adopted a pair of bonded cats, who were fostered by a fantastic woman. They all these years later are still as bonded as the day I brought them home.

We contacted Alley Cats and Angels about adopting a barn cat. They were so helpful and took just as much time finding the right match for us and our situation as they would have if we were adopting a house cat to live with our family. Their concern was focused on what was best for the cats; for example, it’s better to adopt two cats together. When we had all agreed on the two cats who would be coming to live with us, Tia (president) brought them out to our farm, got them settled in, and stayed for several hours. She checked in on them over the next few months and has always remembered them. I will and have recommended this wonderful, all-volunteer organization to anyone looking to adopt barncats or housecats.

Alley Cats and Angels have helped me tremendously. They are always there to answer questions about kitten and older cats. They are very compassionate and loving people. I can't thank them enough for all of their help.

This organization does wonderful things in the communities with feral and non feral cats. They donate their time and efforts to insure these kitties have a safe place to live in. There is a lot of hard work that goes into everything they do. Come join them and you yourself will see the great things they do. The volunteers have the most compassionate feelings for all of these cats. They have helped me in so many ways with my feral cats and finding homes for other kitties. The communities would be lost with out the help that these wonderful people give.

I adopted my very sweet kitty Tiny from Ally Cats and Angel's two years ago. He is a super sweet little guy who fit right in to the family. I originally got him as a companion for my older cat, but he is my 70 pound dogs very best friend.

We adopted both of our cats, a brother and sister, from Alley Cats and Angels about eight years ago. What an amazing organization, that takes care of those that have been abused and forgotten or completely ignored. Our two fur babies were found at NC State during a thunderstorm. ACAA took great care of these sweet kitties and found them s forever home. In the future we will only adopt from these amazing people!

I adopted my cat, Kit (originally Snack) a little over a year ago from Alley Cats and Angels and he is the best decision I’ve ever made! They take amazing care of each cat and really get to know their personalities. I’m so grateful I found Kit and I get to know he was well taken care of before I adopted him! If I’m ever looking for another cat or kitten to take home I would definitely go back to them!

I have adopted two cats from Alley Cats and Angels. Working with them is a wonderful experience. The cats were well prepared for their new home. Love stopping by PetSmart to see the new cats.

This is an org that not only rescues kittens and cats from being euthanized directly from kill shelters, BUT EVEN has room for the fatally sick cats and will spend ANY amount of money to make that cat live. Many cats have had 1000s of dollars put into their survival. If that isn't the epitome of an honest non profit then I don't know what is.

While may Dad was in the hospital out of town with a life threatening illness, I had a blind pregnant cat show up at my house. Alley Cats and Angels were the only rescue that came to my aid and they were phenomenal!

I adopted two cats from Alley Cats and Angels, and I am very appreciative of all that they do. They took the time to ask about my “cat personality” preferences to make sure I ended up with the right cat. I really feel that they go above and beyond to make sure that not only do you get the right cat, but that the cat gets the perfect home to live happily ever after. They know which cat will do better with friends and which one prefers to be “the only child”.

My favorite part about this organization is that they will take back unsuccessful placements, and they remain the secondary owner on the microchip. This shows they are truly dedicated to the lives of these wonderful cats.

Oh, and my cats LOVE their catnip toys!

We needed help getting stray cats in our neighborhood fixed and they were more than helpful giving us vouchers to do this. They even allowed us to pay less than what the voucher usually costs due to our financial situation. They truly care about helping cats and working to lessen the unwanted cat population.

We adopted Brewer (now Wolfgang/Wolfie) in May 2018 from Alley Cats and Angels. His foster parents were so incredibly dedicated to finding the right home for him and making sure that all of their cats had the best care and home environment possible. This organization does their absolute best to make sure their cats are properly socialized and that every medical need is taken care of. He got along with his new brother so quickly and they never leave each other alone!
