I went in for a simple neuter …

Posted on August 15th, 2017

Warning: graphic images, but happy ending!

Thanks to my devoted caretaker and Alley Cat Advocates, I am on the mend. I went in for a simple neuter. I looked a little puny so Alley Cat Advocates gave me their “gold standard of care” … and learned I was puny due to a dozen puncture wounds on my leg! After swelling like a balloon, my leg is now draining and healing and I am feeling well enough to demand scratches on my neck. Thanks, all, for giving me a place to rest and recover!



Exciting News: Your Donation will be Doubled!

Posted on July 24th, 2017

Your support goes TWICE AS FAR to help community cats . . .

We have exciting news! A group of Alley Cat Advocates supporters have agreed to match every dollar you give through August 24 – up to $10,000! That means your gift will be doubled! A donation today means you will help twice as many community cats!

Our Trap-Neuter-Return services are needed more and more each day. We receive dozens of calls each day from concerned cat lovers like you. We want to be able to help all community cats but our resources are stretched to the limit. With this matching opportunity, YOU can make an even greater impact on the lives of cats who deserve a second chance. Please donate today.

Your donation will DOUBLE to help twice as many community cats!

We have helped cats like Buster. Buster was found with a horrible injury to his side. With your support, we changed Buster’s life. He was neutered, vaccinated, and his wound was treated. Two weeks later, he was returned home to the delight of the three neighbors who care for him daily.

There are thousands of cats just like Buster waiting to be spayed or neutered and receive our gold standard of care. This year we hope to help 5,000 community cats!

  • $15 will double to $30 to provide vaccinations for 3 community cats
  • $25 will double to $50 to spay or neuter one community cat
  • $50 will double to $100 to spay or neuter two community cats
  • $100 will double to $200 to help extend medical care for a sick or injured community cat
  • $250 will double to $500 to spay or neuter and vaccinate a colony of 10 community cats

We can’t do this great work without people like you who have a big heart for taking care of our most vulnerable cats. I urge you to donate today while your donation can be doubled. You can put your gift to work immediately by donating online or you can mail your gift to Alley Cat Advocates, 3044 Bardstown Rd., #204, Louisville, Ky, 40205. Please write “Match” on your check.

It’s critical to cats like Buster that we receive your gift by the deadline of August 24 so that we can double your donation.

When Two Cats Become Nine Cats Overnight

Posted on July 22nd, 2017

Melissa’s neighbor mentioned to her that he was moving. He was sad because he couldn’t take the community cats along. He cared about them, but knew that they would never be happy if he tried to move them from the neighborhood they know.

When he left, Melissa started feeding the cats. It quickly became clear to Melissa that the cats were not fixed! When two litters of kittens were born, Melissa’s new feline family grew overnight from 2 cats to a colony of 9 cats!

Even though Melissa wouldn’t describe herself as a “cat person” Melissa knew she had to step in before the situation got out of hand.

She contacted Alley Cat Advocates and scheduled an appointment. Melissa said, “Trapping was easy! The kittens walked right into the traps for food.”


Today, this happy, healthy colony of mamas and kittens are back home. Melissa and her neighbors are enjoying watching these little ones grow and play.

Is your colony of cats growing? Call us today at 502-634-8777 to schedule an appointment!
