Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal-Related, Animals

Mission: Animalkind Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization, was formed in year 2000. We are dedicated to reducing the stray and feral cat overpopulation in Columbia and Greene Counties by means of humane methods: trap/neuter/return (TNR) and low-cost spay/neuter programs for low-income pet owners. In addition, we provide emergency rescue attention and an adoption program. Feral and stray cats live in the shadows of our community, trying to fend for themselves, suffering due to lack of medical attention and food. Left unattended, they proliferate into unsustainable numbers of more unwanted kittens. As a result, millions of felines are euthanized annually throughout the US. Animalkind is passionately committed to humane programs to reverse the proliferation and suffering of these forgotten felines by providing spay/neuter services, feral cat management, education and adoptions. Animalkind Inc. is a local “hands-on” organization serving two counties, and beyond. We respond to emergency rescue situations, work closely with law enforcement regarding animal abandonment and cruelty cases and provide medical care and solutions to pet owners in crisis. Over 150 managed feral cat colonies have been established since our formation. We provide a place of protection and refuge at our adoption center and in foster homes where cats can live comfortably until adopted or live out their lives. At any given time, over 150 free-roaming rescued adoptable cats await their forever home at Animalkind's shelter. All our adoptable cats and kittens are tested for FelV, altered, vaccinated for rabies and distemper and micro-chipped. With each adoption we provide one month free pet health insurance.

Results: Over 15,000 felines have been altered, preventing the birth of over 8 million kittens since our formation. Over 10,000 cats and kittens have found loving homes.

Target demographics: the cat population and low-income pet owners

Direct beneficiaries per year: 1200 loe-income pet owners, saved 1096 felines, adopted 925 in loving homes
