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.

I have been a volunteer with Town Cats for a year. Such a hard working group! I also adopted an adorable young cat from Town Cats. They were supportive all through the adoption process and afterwards.
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
Quick to respond to messages, love their facebook posts, great group!!
Amazing volunteer run organization! They have done so much to help with feral cats in our community!
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!
It was about 2 years ago now that I discovered town cats and adopted Colby from them who they rescued from a dangerous situation. Towncats is an amazing group of volunteers who helps gets the cats healthy and vetted and spayed and neutered before placing them in the right homes, and makes such a difference in our community! I can’t say enough good things about town cats and recommend them to all my family and friends
I love the work that my friends at Town Cats is doing to rehome local area stray cats. This is a great non-profit to support if you love cats and want to help support a group that loves cats and wants to find them good homes.
I've seen various volunteers for this organization and they are always so friendly and truly believe in their cause. Such a great group of people!
Their volunteers go way above and beyond to help the stray and homeless cats in our neighborhood get spayed and neutered.
