Alley Cats & Angels cares so much about rescuing cats that it is contagious. Their rescue efforts are incredible, and it is great how they give each cat/kitten a full vet workup, spay/neuter AND microchip. They saved the kitten I adopted from a feral colony where the cats were being poisoned. They made sure that I knew that they were there for me if I had any questions about taking care of him, which made me feel so comfortable since I have never owned a cat before. If I ever decide to adopt another cat, this organization is my first choice.

I've got both my cats from AC&A and two years later they are still the loves of my life. The process of adopting was smooth but still thorough!

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.

I follow several nonprofit animal rescues and live in Va. This agency far exceeds my expectations and does wonderful work in rescuing, fostering, and finding forever homes for the adult cats as well as the kittens.

We had the most amazing experience with Alley Cats and Angels. They truly love each and every cat that they rescue and go above and beyond to make sure each cat is put into the best home possible. They rock!

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 learned about Alley Cats and Angels through a friend. After I found a kitten on the Alley Cats website, I emailed them and asked if she would be at the upcoming Adoption Event so I could make sure it was a perfect fit. They were timely in their response, checked with the foster parents to make sure the kitten would be there, and encouraged me to fill out the forms and submit them to make the process easier the day of the event. At the adoption, I met two of the foster Moms and they both provided details about the kitten. One even had her boyfriend send me pictures they had taken while she was in their care--and he wouldn't even let me reimbuse him. On our one-year adoption anniversary, I sent an update and the foster parents were so happy to hear from us. I can't say enough about this group. I feel very protective of them and follow them and their adoptions. They really care about their cats/kittens and are trying to find good homes for their charges.
