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.

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!

Fantastic group of people who truly care. We adopted our cat from them 7 years ago and she was fully vetted, the foster knew everything about her, and she is just the best! We love this group.

I adopted my two cats from Alley Cats and Angels. I was so impressed by how thoroughly they vet potential adopters, the full vaccinations my cats got before I adopted them, and the obvious care they have for the cats in their care. My two are perfectly suited for what I was looking for in my pets and I was advised about their personalities and needs prior to adopting. I've recommended them to friends and colleagues looking for their next cat and will continue to do so.

In 2011 when I saw on Craigslist and beautiful cat that I have never seen anything like it before, I just had to find out how I could get it. I later found out she was not able to be adopted yet because she was too young after being found in a parking lot of a Walmart. I patiently waited 2 weeks to go to a PetSmart on a certain day and I was the first one out of two others that wanted her. My family and I fell in love with Scarlett. It was all because of a leak at the Angels reaching out to help a kitty in bed if a forever loving home. My family and I cherish Scarlett very much. She is so softest cat ever that anyone has pet. Love her very much. You won't be disappointed adopting a cat for a very low adoption fees or Alley Cat angels.

I have been a volunteer kitten foster mom for Alley Cats & Angels of NC for about a year and a half. We take in feral litters and their mothers as well as pull kittens from kill shelters, particularly special needs cats with sometimes serious medical conditions.

All cats are given complete veterinary care before being put up for adoption and live in foster homes to maximize their socialization. Our cats are healthy, well loved, and well known so we screen potential adopters very carefully to match the right cat to their situation.

Like all small charitable organizations, we are not a well oiled corporate machine, but the level of rescue we do is pretty mind boggling for an all volunteer group. If you are looking to adopt a kitten or an adult cat, you will not regret adopting from Alley Cats & Angels of NC.

We adopted 2 kittens (not littermates) in Aug. 2016. Rupert & Radar (formerly Grumpy).
Everyone at Alley Cats & Angels were so helpful and nice, the new kittens had been well socialized in foster homes before we got them (they were about 6 mos. old). and they have been making us laugh, having fun, and adventures ever since. They quickly made friends with our dog. Radar quickly attached to my husband while Rupert has me wrapped around his paw.
The work that everyone does at Alley Cats and Angels is amazing and we fully support all of their efforts and hard work.

Amazing rescue. Found kittens in box on side of a road and contacted many rescues and Alley Cats and Angels is the only rescue that contacted me back. The kittens will got all their medical done before adoption. They spend alot of money on medical because the health of their cats is important to them.

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.

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.
