I started as a volunteer cleaner for Winging Cat. I love the care and attention they give to the cats and kittens in their care. I now foster for them and have adopted several cats from them. Great rescue!

I have been volunteering as a foster for several years. Fostering is a roller coaster of emotions! Thankfully, the people in this group have been there for all of it, supporting and helping me through the worst times and celebrating with me during the best. The cats are the #1 priority, getting fully vetted and loved on in preparation for their new homes. The volunteers do their best to match adopters with the right kitty and ensure a happy life for their babies. This group of people step up every day to help out their community and they are all my heroes!

As an animal lover and cat parent all my life, I always wanted to be involved somehow in helping Cats in need. After Katrina I was involved in rescue from afar and "met" so many devoted people who truy wanted to make a difference. Internet based with local suport in areas of Georgia, we were able to organize and form a group who promoted spay/neuterfor population control and with amazing Fosters and caretakers, formed Foster homes to nurture rescued cats and kittens and ready them for adoption. Winging cat Rescue members are unselfishly devoting blod. sweat and tears to giving so many a second cahnce at life.

I have worked with this organization for a couple of years. Was familiar with them a couple of years before hand, when my friend worked for them. They care for their cats. They provide clean facilities and do their best to make sure the cats and kitten (fully vetted and healthy) go to good "furever" homes. I am glad to work with them.

My husband & I started volunteering with Winging Cat Rescue after we adopted two kittens from them. We’ve gotten to see what a caring and dedicated group of people they are from caretakers at the adoption centers to fosters to board members. Whenever possible, WCR is first to step up and help out the community with taking in cats and kittens, getting them fully vetted and find them loving forever homes. In good times as well as tough times, everyone rallies together to do everything possible to make sure that the vulnerable are shown love and compassion. It’s a family of like minded people trying their best to make a positive difference in their communities and in the cats & kittens lives.

I adopted the sweetest kitten from WCR. They truly care about the cats and kittens in their care. I would recommend this group to anyone looking for a new member of their family.

WCR not only rescued my sweet Rocky, but he had been found by the road after a fight. His leg was amputated, and his life was saved! Best cat ever! So grateful!

I am one of many web-based volunteers, helping to spread the word about WCR. These people really care about cats & work tirelessly to save as many as they can from killing pounds, placing them in foster care for adoption or transporting to no-kill shelters or cat sanctuaries. The Winging Cat Rescuers know first-hand about the feline population explosion. They have implemented a low-cost Spay/Neuter Program for area residents of Spalding County Georgia as well as 50% off S/N vouchers to those who adopt directly from Spalding A.C. They have also established a medical fund to provide initial vax to the cats & kittens while they are still in Spalding Animal Control. .This not only benefits the Cats themselves, but also Spalding County Residents who can be more confident about the health of the cat they are adopting. They are a network of internet based volunteers located nationwide who has focused (but not exclusive to) an Animal Control Pound in Griffin, Georgia. This pound did use the inhumane Gas Chambers as their method of "euthanasia". But as of July 2009 they have switched to lethal injection for all animals are put down, largely due to the efforts of WCR.
