About Alley Cat Rescue
Alley Cat Rescue’s (ACR) commitment is to help stray and outdoor community cats in the United States and around the world, by promoting humane nonlethal care to improve cats’ lives. ACR works to reduce the number of feral cats living in colonies through a proven method called Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR).
ACR’s programs promote better care for community cats through trap-neuter-return. Local programs include placing unwanted cats in new homes, running a low-cost spay/neuter clinic, and providing support for local feral cat caretakers. Nationally, we operate a network of Cat Action Teams across the U.S. Our Feral Fix Challenge has developed an international network of veterinarians offering free or low-cost TNR services. ACR's mission is to lead the way for humane care for all cats.
