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 adopted from Alley Cats and Angels about five years ago and you could tell the people worked hard to find the right match between cat and adopter. They asked a lot of questions about what I was looking for in a cat and when there was one cat I was interested in that didn't seem like a match at all, they told me I could absolutely meet that cat but explained why they felt the cat would not be a fit for our household. I appreciated how much work they put into making sure it was the right fit all around. In the end, we adopted one of the cats they recommended and it really has been a perfect match.

I adopted from Alley Cats and Angels less than a year ago and the experience was great. It was not a quick here's your cat, but I did not feel they were overly intrusive and you could tell the questions they asked were because they want to make sure the cat is adopted into a loving home that will care for them. They will always take their cats back if an adopter cannot keep them. Some rescues say that but when you contact them, they never return calls or emails, but these folks do.

By far the best adoption ever! We adopted the sweetest cat ever! Alley Cats and Angels team was super amazing! They asked lots of questions and answered any questions we had about the adoption. They are also great with if we need anything else we can still contact them and they help out! They cats are well loved and taken care of! I will definitely adopt from them again and recommend them to all my friends and family! Thank you for being super at making this an easy process.

Alley Cats and Angels helped me with several very low cost spay/neuter vouchers for some stray cats I was taking care of. I am on disability and could not afford to get them done and they made it easy for me to help the cats by helping me with vouchers.

Love Alley Cats & Angels! We adopted our wonderful fur kid at one of their adoption events almost 2 years ago. They do a great job in vetting adopters to ensure successful matches. Will adopt from them again when we're ready.

We adopted a sweet little kitty from Alley Cats and Angels about a month ago. What a wonderful experience! They took the time to make sure we were a good for for the kitten and that we knew everything we needed to know about caring for a cat. We left knowing that we were prepared to give our kitty a good life. These ladies were fantastic and made us feel like family. The kitten was well taken care of and up to date on everything. If we adopt another kitty, it will definitely be through Alley Cats and Angels.

I adopted a wonderful kitten in March 2014. I had lost my 19 year old cat a few months before...all my cats have always been rescued...but not from an organization...one from a dumpster...one from an crazy man who wanted to drown an entire litter. AC&A is so amazing. They are meticulous with the fostering and medical care...when you adopt from them...they know these cats...ask them...they are so good at matching cat to family....my kitten..."Mouse" has been such a gift. She fits my home, her fur brother and makes our gamut complete. Know that when you adopt from AC&A that you are adopting from a place of love...you can't ask for anything more . They are truly angels....❤

Alley Cats and Angels is fantastic! They assisted us with rescuing a couple of litters of kittens and their momma cat who were under a construction trailer. Without their help, these kittens would not have made it because we had nowhere else to take them.

I adopted 2 cats from this rescue in 2010. They are an all volunteer network who seek out feral cats, spay/neuter them and socialize them for good homes.

My cats continue to be in excellent health and are terrific companions for the entire family.

I highly recommend!

I just can't say enough nice things about Alley Cats and Angels! They really take pride in what they do and truly love the cats/kittens as if they are their own. When we adopted the cried letting them go tears of joy and sadness. This is just something they have to do but they do out of love. These cats/kittens are their babies. I Haven't seen this anywhere else. So please adopt from them. They really love what they do.

Alley Cats & Angels is an amazing organization! In addition to accepting feral cats, they take on some of the most difficult medical cases as they truly want to help all cats and kittens. I'm not only a volunteer, but a two time adopter!

The volunteers in each of Alley Cats and Angels programs work tirelessly at creating a better community for cats. I am constantly astonished by the commitment level - from the very core members to the casual volunteer - it is an effort borne of love and dedication to help creatures whose lives are often considered expendable.

I adopted two littermates from Alley Cats, and it was a wonderful experience. They were very busy, and although I had to wait, I wasn't forgotten. They also didn't rush my decision. Everyone was friendly and clearly loves cats. The adoption process was thorough but reasonable. I highly recommend.

Alley Cats and Angels helped us find the perfect cat for our growing family. All the volunteers we worked with were friendly, kind, and professional. Our new kitty adjusted quickly to our large family and became fast friends with our dog.

I adopted my sweet cat from them and then helped as a volunteer and then a foster. They are incredibly dedicated to the cats. Excellent vet care, compassionate foster homes and endless selfless work. Best rescue I've ever worked with!

I can't say enough good things about this rescue organization. They truly make a difference in the community. I started volunteering for Alley Cats and Angels when they helped me trap and home feral kittens in my neighborhood. One of their best attributes is that they are sensible and smart with their resources. They don't over-commit so every animal in their care gets the attention it deserves. I recommend Alley Cats and Angels for any one looking to adopt a cat or volunteer.

I work at the County Animal Shelter. This rescue , time and time again has pulled from us.
Not the cute little kittens, or gorgeous purebred cats.
They pull the cats that need major medical attention, the ones that would stand no chance at an open intake shelter. They invest in the best medical care for those, and all their cats. They find them forever homes.
They have also responded time and time again to the "dreaded last minute" call for bottle baby fosters.
This is a rescue with integrity, compassion and dedication.

I have volunteered with Alley Cats and Angels for a few years now. At first they were helping me to get the ferals cats I had started caring for spayed and neutered and even took in kittens that were born during the process. I started fostering for them. They care so much about the cats in their care and will spare no expense when it comes to giving them the best care. I have found many kittens that have all ended up being taken. They are willing to take in some of the sickest of kittens and give them the best care possible even if it requires expensive surgeries. Me and all the kitties that have crossed my path don't know what we would do without them.

I have been a volunteer (foster, events helper, admin stuff) with AC&A for six years. The care given to cats in the programs (adoption and barn) is outstanding. In addition the voucher program provides a low (or even no!) cost alternative for people to get their cats spayed/neutered. It's a really great organization full of dedicated volunteers looking to do the best for the cats.
