It's a busy group! They foster cats and find homes for cats (and spay/neuter and inoculate before placing in homes) . This group is at numerous venues raising money to provide for medical care for the sick, homeless and fostered cats in the area. They are a tireless group
that makes a positive impact on the community.

Town Cats of Ocean City, MD does a fantastic job. Their love of cats can be seen in how they take care of feral colonies, their volunteering at the Berlin Petsmart and the fostering of many homeless cats. What a fantastic group!

I live in Shippensburg, PA and am involved in TNR, fostering, and rescue. I am a firm believer in TEAMWORK; it's essential in saving precious lives.
Too many times I get involved in situations that require the help of a rescue. I am unable to do everything so I reach out via social media (most times) in hopes of finding avenues for adoptions. Sometimes I get lucky and other times not.
I am very blessed and appreciative of the help and support from Town Cats Inc. I needed placement for 3 kitties so they would not have to be returned back to their colony or caregiver. I was beyond thankful when my plea was answered by Lori Wagman who is a foster for Town Cats Inc.
I was very nervous as I had never met Lori, the rescue was out-of-state, and never had prior dealings with Town Cats Inc. But, let me tell you, this experience was amazing. Lori came to my house to pick up the kitties, kept me updated with pics too, let me know when they were going to be the adoption center and when they were adopted. How refreshing !!! And what an amazing rescue and foster mom too.
My experience was definitely beyond what I ever imagined.

I was able to attend a recent adoption event which included volunteers, cats and kittens from Town Cats. I was delighted by the knowledgeable and friendly volunteers who gave great information about the cats and kittens they had present. The cats and kittens were in clean and neat cages that were brightly colored and well kept. The temperament of the cats and kittens amazed me as they were easy to handle, comfortable, playful and incredibly friendly. Town Cats seemed to have a great rapport with PetSmart staff, who sponsored the event. I was also impressed with the diversity of the cats, some old and some young. I was able to witness the adoption of an older cat who had been waiting for his forever home for a substantial period of time, and the smiles of the volunteers and family who adopted him. Town Cats does a great job of making sure adoptions are a good match with opportunities to meet and greet cats in a private room with toys, and a comprehensive (yet, not long) application for adoption. They had all of the cat's records and spay/neuter information available at the event. I was very impressed with Town Cats, my experience was delightful.

I have adopted 3 cats over the past 7 years from Town Cats Inc. The care and concern provided for all their rescues is incredible. I am amazed by the dedication of the volunteers in this organization. They obviously love what they do as well as providing a great service for the community. They have saved countless lives of kittens and cats who would not have survived without this wonderful group.

Town Cats has helped me out both times I needed to find homes for unwanted kittens in our neighborhood. The second most recent litter of 5 abandoned kittens was accepted at a busy time when our public shelter was already overwhelmed. The little kittens have a better chance to be healthy and be shared with so many more good responsible and pre-screened people who will look for their next cat to adopt at Town Cats! Their program and foster homes are appreciated by our community!

I adopted my cat Bash from Town Cats, and he is just the best.
They arranged to have him neutered for me after the adoption, and when he was having trouble with peeing on things that he wasn't supposed to be, Chris offered advice and we got him back on track.

I adopted two young adult sisters for Town Cats and I couldn’t be happier. I have had them for all of 3 weeks and they have stolen my heart! Town Cats was truly amazing and super helpful in preparing me for my new additions. The best cat rescue in town!

I cannot express how happy I am! I reached out to three different organizations here on the shore and Town Cats was so quick to go above and beyond. Not only did they respond to my requests quickly, but they came out to my house to meet my cat and dog and figure out the best little pal for my family!

To give a short backstory, I was hesitant bringing a new cat into my home as my current cat “Darcy” was very obsessed with me (this is putting it lightly!! LOL) I was worried a new cat would disrupt their happiness or my home would seem threatening to the new cat, but Chris and Lori eased my mind quickly. My goal was to find the perfect cat that would be a companion to Darcy and entertain her while I wasn’t around. They talked to me for days trying to figure out who would be a perfect addition to my craziness, and we finally decided on one of their Barn Cats. I was nervous to be honest. I felt I was in a unique position because I knew I didn’t need a cat that was going to cuddle me all day (ALREADY HAD ONE!) but I didn’t want to end up with a cat that was unhappy moving into my home!! Chris assured me Georgie was going to be the best cat, that he may take time to warm up, but that the Barn Cats are just as capable of bringing happiness to the home. MAN am I glad I listened to her. Georgie has so quickly become a perfect fit in my family. He lays with my dog and plays with the other cat, and even lets me pet him for as long as I want.

This whole experience has truly reminded me that you can’t judge a book by it’s cover. The Barn Cats may not be the first choice because of their background, or lack of enthusiasm during visits, but so what? So are some people we meet!!! (LOL) If I would have just assumed the Barn Cats were the unlovable kind, I would be missing out on the most loving cat I could have ever imagined. Thank you all for such a wonderful gift.

I have dealt with Town Cats for several years and they have always responded to my needs quickly and graciously.
I know people who have had feral cats, barn cats, and domesticated cats that had not been spayed or neutered. They either could not afford the procedure or did not have the means to trap them. The Town Cats lent me traps for the cats and made arrangements for them to go to spay/neuter clinics. I also have a friend who has needed veterinary care for her cats and couldn’t afford it
and Town Cats have authorized care at the vet for her cats and paid for the visits. They have also taught me to build a shelter for a feral cat and given me the supplies needed for the shelter tub. They are an awesome, caring, dedicated group of people who help any cat in need. God bless them!

Having just lost one of our sweet kitties to illness, we saw a picture of "Sterling" on social media via Town Cats of Ocean City. I immediately fell in love with that sweet face. I contacted them, we filled out an application and, within days, "Cooper" (as he is now called) was ours! He's crazy, but we love him! Since then, we have continued to support this most worthy organization through occasional monetary donations when possible.

Town Cats is a small cat rescue group that helps our community by trapping, spay and neutering, and then releasing or keeping the cats and getting them adopted. I have met the volunteers that work in Town Cats and they are hard working and dedicated people. They work many hours to feed feral cat colonies, maintain cat sanctuaries, get the cats healthy, work at adoption events, work at the local Farmer's Market and Convention Center events, and at PetSmart feeding the cats and cleaning their condo homes and playing with them. Town Cats have a website and a Facebook page where you can see what they are doing. Town Cats helps people care for feral cats. One thing they do is help people make shelters to keep the outside cats and kittens warm and dry. If someone has a question about their cats, they help to the best of their ability. This non-profit is a service to the community.

This is a great rescue group that has been around a long time and has a lot of expertise to offer the public in rescuing and caring for cats. I adopted "Snowball" from Town Cats and she is a wonderful addition to our family!

It has been a pleasure to work with the ladies at Town Cats! They are extremely knowledgeable about and really care for cats that have been abandoned. They work tirelessly at TNR, and adoption, give up their homes and time to care for animals people abandon, don't care about, or are downright cruel to. These women are also experts at caring for their kitties and pass that knowledge on to adopting "parent(s)" and provide followup to make sure that new "families" are happy and growing together.

Town Cats is celebrating 20 years of service to the community this year, 2018. They are the original and for the most part of the 20 years the only TNVR group providing low cost options to Ocean City, Ocean Pines, Berlin and the surrounding communities. I am impressed with the level of commitment, passion and knowledge the ALL VOLUNTEER group demonstrates. It is good to know that there are some people that still do things because it is the right thing to do!
Please see the cat I adopted from Town Cats. He was found living under somebody's deck until Town Cats stepped in and gave him the medical care he needed. Look how handsome he is today! Our family would not be complete without the love of this fella. Thank You Town Cats!!!

I found out about Towncats when I found out that my big beautiful black 8 year old cat was dying. I talked with Chris about adopting another black cat. The one I chose was a semi feral big black one eyed 2 year old. I also agreed to foster/train a sweet black girl 2 year old girl to walk on a leash. It took a little time for the boy Taji to become comfortable. The girl Rosie did learn to walk on a leash and has since found her home with me. I became a volunteer and have added cats from towncats as I have lost mine. My son max also has adopted his son from towncats. Max is a dog.

I was asked from Town Cats to help with fostering a litter of kittens. Not having much experience with kittens, I was educated on what to do. I took in a litter of four girls that were found outside and pretty much eating whatever they could find. We believe at the time, they were about 6 weeks old when they were trapped and brought to my house. They were extremely small , malnourished and sick. With the help of towncats and the Vets , we were able to get them up to speed with their weight , nutrition and get them well again.
Town Cats volunteers were there to help every step of the way until the girls were ready to go.

We adopted out three of the girls and my husband and I decided to keep one for ourselves. So yes , I became a foster failure but it was one of the best things we ever did.
That was over 2 years ago and I decided to help towncats and stay on as a volunteer. This organization really does care about its volunteers and about its cats and community. I have seen them grow over the years with more volunteers and more cats adopted out each year.

I am honored to work with them and honored to be part of their organization. Every person in this group is a volunteer which says a lot about how they love what they do.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Town Cats. When we first saw our Holly at the Holiday Shoppers Fair in Ocean City, Maryland, we knew she would make a perfect addition to our family. Despite having only one eye, as soon as I held Holly I saw what a special girl she was. The volunteers at Town Cats helped to make the adoption process run smoothly. It was so apparent that Chris, Holly's foster mother, had loved her and cared for her until Holly found her forever home. For the past 5 years, Holly has been an integral part of our family. She entertains us with her antics one minute, and then the next she wants to cuddle. I think the volunteers at Town Cats are doing a fantastic job of finding homeless cats their own families and a second chance at life.

We first "met" Town Cats Inc in 2013, when we were in Ocean City for another event. We visited their adoption booth at the Convention Center, and fell in love with one of the kitties there. The staff was very friendly, professional, and clearly cared very much about their kitties! We adopted two youngsters from Town Cats in 2013, and were so pleased with the outcome, that we adopted two more from Town Cats in 2016. All of the staff were very helpful in the entire process and they take the time to follow up with us on how our kitties are doing. We absolutely love everyone at Town Cats. I feel that this organization goes above and beyond in caring for cats and kittens who might otherwise perish, and works diligently to find homes for all of the cats and kittens that they rescue. They are a valuable resource for the community that they serve as well as for the animals that they rescue, care for and adopt out! I highly recommend them to anyone looking to add a cat (or two) to their family!

To start off, I had a Feral cat problem in my neighborhood. I had gone to the owners of the mobile park and gave them information about the TNR program that I had printed off a website. They had no interest, I even offered to pay for the spay and neutering. Still no interest. So I called several organizations (more then 10), I either got no response, was told they didn't have the volunteers to help or their shelters were full (which is understandable). I finally got a call back from Chris Aumont of Town Cats of OC. I told her my situation and even though they were short of help she came to my house after dark with cages to trap the cats. She spent time with me , showed me how to use , where and how to set the traps, and told me the sequence of the TNR. If not for Chris calling me back the cats would probably still be in that neighborhood having litter after litter. I was in awe of the structure and coordination of this establishment! Rounding up the feral cats and ensuring a safe delivery to the vets for spay and neutering is not an easy process. But they made it look easy! I was never a part of something like this. The staff are so appreciative of our help. The dedication and compassion of Town Cats is not only amazing but heartfelt. I have considered quitting volunteering because it's heart breaking to me to see such neglect and abuse but then I realize we all feel this way and that's why we stay and trudge through this. They need us!! Town cats has made my retiring very rewarding! I am so thankful Town Cats reached out to me and helped me with my Feral problem. I've recently moved from that neighborhood but on my last visit a friend told me he hasn't seen one Feral cat. What a success!! Trapping is just one task they do, their mission is to help any free roaming, abandoned cat. They have adoption services, fostering, and many fund raisers to help and educate people about our Feral population. I've had so many people thank me for volunteering. Being an official volunteer now I'm proud to tell people I'm a part of Town Cats of OC! The cats need our help and Town Cats is there!! Thank you Town Cats!!

My husband and I were looking for a companion for our dachound Minnie. Our older dachound had passed away and she was lonely. We talked it over and decided we would like to adopt a kitten. When we saw the picture of Alex on line we knew he was meant to be our new family member. Alex foster family gave him such a wonderful start in life. We give Town Cats all the credit for his fun loving disposition. He a Minnie are best of friends. They do everything together. You will see in the pictures even sleep together. We cannot say evough good things about the volenteers at Ocean City Town Cats. Janet and Norman Schultz

Town Cats of OC was so easy to work with and everyone has been very helpful. I found my 2 kitties on their website, filled out the application for adoption, and was able to make arrangements to meet them the next day. They are both adorable and have quickly become a part of our family. Thanks Town Cats of OC for helping us find our new family members!

I can’t say enough good things about town cats and recommend them to all my family and friends
