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.

Alley Cats and Angels is an amazing all-volunteer organization. The volunteers go above and beyond in caring for kittens and cats. The cats in their foster care are loved and well-socialized and people look forward to adopting them. Vets have told clients how impressed the are with the healthiness of cats adopted from Alley Cats and Angels. I have personal experience with the organization as an adopter of two cats as well as a volunteer and rave about the organization to everyone!

Just cannot say enough about this wonderful organization and all they do for the cat population. They have helped me get a disabled man and his colony help with the over population on his property. Over the years they have been able to help kittens dumped at my feral colonies homes. I am so grateful for this organization. I too volunteer for them. You could not go wrong adopting or volunteeeing for them.

This is the best of the best. The kitties are well socialized and exceptionally well cared for. They have a wonderful vet who cares for their kitties needs and makes sure they are healthy. I had researched several organizations to volunteer my time to and chose Alley Cats and Angels for many reasons with integrity being at the top of the list. They do all they can to save as many kitties as they can and treat them all with so much love.

i would like to express my gratitude to Alley cats and Angels for all the help they gave us in getting our colony of cats and kittens under control. They supplied the vouchers so we could get all the adult cats out here spayed and neutered. They took all the kittens, even the ones that needed medical attention , got them well, and found forever home for over 20 kittens. That was in Sept. 2014. The last litter of kittens were born in Oct. 2014, and we have not had any kittens born since. Thank you Alley Cat and Angels, We could not have done this without your help. We also started volunteering during the time ya'll were helping us.

Have been involved with Alley Cats and Angels for almost 2 years now. Anytime I have a question,concern or need I am able to get several members of the group to contact with answers, solutions or a contact to get an animal services or needs met. They run a great organization and have been a asset to the feral cat populations of Wake County. Building shelters,having barns available these ladies go above and beyond for the protection and needs of stray cats in our County. They are smart and thoughtful in their adoptions and truly care for every cat that has been put in their care or services. They are a great group.

Alley Cats and Angels has helped me spay/neuter a lot of feral and stray cats at very little cost to me because I could not afford it. They did not judge me for not having much money, but were helpful and appreciative that I was tyring to prevent more kittens from being born.

They have also taken in some kittens that were born before I could get all the cats spayed. The kittens got great medical care, Alley Cats and Angels make sure the cats have all their vaxes before being adopted, not just the first set. They also work hard to find the right home for the right now. It's not about the number of adoptions with them, it's about the right adoptions.

I owe a big thank you to the wonderful volunteers at Alley Cats who brought me my sweet Juliet. Their great care of her and her sisters allowed me to find her and adopt her. They also helped me when another sweet girl showed up on my doorstep a few weeks later. They were very kind and brought us into the Alley Cats family, before I ultimately decided to adopt her as well. This organization has people who genuinely care and do wonderful work.

I worked with them a lot through PetSmart and they are wonderful, caring people. They went out of their way to house my cat for a month until I moved to a place I could have her.

An adoption process that dreams are made of...truly. Not only did we walk away with our newest addition to the family, but the entire process was just so seamless and easy. Yes, they checked us out, of course, but none of it felt imposing or unnecessary. Yes, they helped us find our perfect match, but it didn't feel rushed or forced. It was all so wonderful. I've already recommended Alley Cats and Angels to several friends looking to adopt. :)

I loved working with Alley Cats and Angels. Adopting my kitten, Molly, was easy and lacked the stress I have experienced from trying to adopt from other places. The staff was very encouraging and very helpful. I couldn't have asked for an easier experience. I will definitely be returning to Alley Cats and Angels the next time I want to adopt. :) Love them!!

I am a proud adopter of 3 cats from AC&A, as well as a volunteer. When we looked last year to adopt and I was looking for an organization to adopt from, I was very impressed with the organization and it's volunteers. Since then, I have volunteered at adoption events and have fostered. Iam proud to say all of my friends comment they know what organization they plan to adopt from when they decide to home another cat. First class, professional, organization!

We have three cats adopted through Alley Cats and Angels. They each came to us well socialized and ready to become part of our family. We support TNR and are thankful for all AC&As does to educate the public and prevent unwanted kittens.
