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.
I work at a large prison and we have feral cats, a Coworker
and I wanted to take care of these cats. She told me about
this rescue. We found some kittens back in June Alley cat volunteers came
that day and rescued the kittens. They also trapped several adult cats
and spayed and neutered them. I volunteered to foster some of the kittens.
Alley cat and Angels were great and do so much to help cats in this area.
I started out as an adopter several years ago and was so impressed with the quality of the work that this organization does in the community that I became a volunteer. Alley Cats and Angels only adopts out fully vetted cats and kittens - and the health of their animals is so important that they provide a 21 day health guarantee with each cat and kitten adopted. Every cat and kitten is raised in multiple foster homes - resulting in some of the most well adjusted and best socialized cats and kittens in the area. Additionally, as an entirely volunteer run non-profit they also help feral cats in the community with their TNR (Trap Neuter Return) program, provide a low-cost spay neuter program (available to anyone, regardless of income) and a Barn Cat Program to provide safe barn and garden homes to feral and other cats that need outdoor homes (and natural pest control). This is a great organization that helps ALL needy cats and kittens in the community.
I am a board member of Alley Cats and Angels and I am so proud of the work that we do. As an all-volunteer organization, the number of cats we help each year through adoption, TNR, barn/garden home placement, and low-cost or free spay/neuter is astonishing.
We started with three volunteers and in our first year, we rescued 28 cats. That number has greatly increased. In 2012, we took in 329 cats (adoption program and barn/garden cat program) and sponsored and subsidized the spay/neuter of approximately 300 cats. The number of cats we rescued has increased ten-fold from our first year, but we are still a 100% volunteer-based, foster-home based rescue.
