Hill Country Cat Control and it's volunteers are passionate about reducing the number of unwanted cats through TNR. Also Alice and Jeff do what's needed to obtain these forgotten cats homes through adoption through a "no kill shelter" or private adoption. As each cat leaves their control, they are bound for their forever home. And that's the goal.

My letter to Hill Country Cats July 5th , 2009 There is a lady who lived in front of my property in Burnett county It appears she  has moved leaving about 15 cats without resources. I have been trespassing to feed and water these cats. Two are tame enough to pick up but the rest are feral kittens various ages to apx 2 months to  4 months. I have a humane trap that doesn't hurt them but no knowledge of how to actually get a cat to get in it. I tried to trap a male feral who hung around here last winter and all he did was look at it and laugh. I failed to catch one cat  never mind where to begin with 15!!! Do you know of any one who can help me Please give me an idea of where to even begin. I have ten acres  behind hers but even if I catch them I can't just turn them loose unfixed I'll be butt deep in cats this time next summer!!!   They do not deserve this and I want to help but I do not even know where to begin. I hate to see them starve or die of thirst. {End Quote} Hill country cat control provided me with traps instructions and encouragement as I trapped and transported my first feral kitties. They worked with me over the coarse of several months until all of the abandon feral cats were vaccinated sterilized and ear tipped. Thanks to their services in conjunction with Austin SPCA 20 feral cats destine for a life of procreations and near starvation have a new lease on life. Now free from the burden of reproduction these feral cats have formed a stable colony preventing skunks, raccoons and possums from taking residence in our inventory. These working kitties also provide eco-friendly, economic and low maintenance pest control by catching and deposing of mice snakes and lizards so that our customers no longer receive any unwanted “extras” with their pallet orders. HCC helped the cats, the earth and our business.

Hill Counry Cat Control provided me with one of my most happy experiences ever! My little cat died and I wanted to find just the perfect replacement and Hill Country Cat Control went out of their way to help me. They e-mailed pictures and descriptions. Even thought they are 1 1/2 hours from where I live when I went to meet my new baby Blanquito I knew he was the perfect choice. They saved him from a gutter and nursed him back to health. They are AWESOME!!

Alice Rudenstein at Hill Country Cat Control is amazing! She helped us TNR 6 feral cats who have since adopted us and now keep our property free of any and all rodents, snakes, etc. We could not have done it without her help. She guided us through the process including a more sophisticated drop trap procedure we needed to catch a trap adverse mother cat. We feel so blessed to have helped keep these beautiful creatures safe and they do the same for us in return. Don and Anita Cruver Horseshoe Bay

This is a wonderful organization that helps in feral cat control. The cats are neutered and given first shots as well as cleaning of the ears and a general overall health lookover. It's also nice that the cats are returned back to their environment to continue living a more healthy life. Feral cats are usually overlooked. No one wants them on their property but w/o spaying/neutering the population will only keep growing. So having an organization like HCCC that helps property owners get involved and help the cats, too is a good thing for everyone. I would encourage anyone to please donate to this group. Help these cats that need our attention. Please don't forget them. Stephenie Fowler

Hill Country Cat Control works diligently to sterilize and vaccinate (TNR) the cats in their community, while at the same time provide medical care to the ill and injured cats they encounter. They are the experts in this area- the go to people- and help many individuals and sister organizations by networking and working cohesively together to achieve common goals- finding the best option for a cat, whatever that might be ie release, adoption or foster care. These are kind and compassionate advocates working to make a difference for the cats.

My first experience with Hill Country Cats began back in 2006-we were faced with about 8 pregnant stray cats, several toms - I was unable to find any help to deal with this until I called HCCC. Alice, the director, was very positive and assured me they could help us help the cats. And they did! She came armed with traps and information that addressed our situation. We trapped cats all summer and into the fall-a great success! The colony we manage has been kitten-free since then. Cats have been "dumped" but the social ones have been adopted out, thanks to HCCC's help, and others have been TNR'd. We have also TNR'd another location in our community, with their help. Lots of cats saved, lives improved, unwanted kittens not born, and social cats placed. A great organization.
