Stray & Feral Help

Every day, people across the country are providing care to feral cats — one that is not socialized to humans. They’re conducting Trap-Neuter-Return, the successful trapping, sterilizing, vaccinating, and returning feral cats so they can live out normal lives in the wild.  Feral cats’ needs are not met by the current animal control and shelter system, because these animals are considered un-adoptable. The following local organizations can help you with the ferals in your community through the Trap-Neuter-Release programs they have.   Please note, St. Sophia’s Forgotten Felines is in no way affiliated with any of the following organizations, so you will need to contact them directly for information on their programs and their policies.
