While supplies last …
We have 60 shelters stuffed with straw, and ready for your community cat. Pick up shelters at 536 Eastern Parkway while supplies last. Shelters are free, but we welcome and appreciate your donation to help us with this great work for community cats.

Or, build your own…
Try this simple plan to build a winter shelter for your outdoor cats. It is simple, inexpensive, and your kitty will purr with delight. Visit our community cat center for easy ideas and instructions.
Saving Nine Lives, Louisville’s Feral Cat Heroes
“Without warning, Stephanie Gillis whips out a can of Fancy Feast and walks down a narrow road lined by trailer homes. She snaps it open and pushes down on the metal top. Liquid slowly spills out, leaving a trail back to where we are stationed in the bright white Alley Cat Advocates van.
Her goal: capturing five stray cats so they can be transported to the Snip Clinic to be spayed or neutered.”
Special thanks to writer Stuart Ungar and photographer Kathryn Harrington for spending time with us and sharing this great work.
