The HSUS's Feral Cat Program Fund

Help feral cats today

The Humane Society of the United States estimates that there may be as many as 50 million feral cats in the United States.

Without Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) programs, feral cats continue to reproduce, and up to 75 percent of their kittens could die. Calls to officials from citizens (whether they are concerned about the cats' welfare or complain about the cats) won't decrease, and feral cats will continue to overwhelm animal shelters that are already trying to care for injured, abused, and surrendered pet cats.

In response to this complex issue, The HSUS has created many resources to assist 501(c)3 feral cat groups. But many groups struggle to fund their good work, and we would like to help them.

Donations to The Feral Cat Program Fund will be used to:

  • Pay veterinarians who provide spay/neuter services and purchase surgical packs, vaccinations and other necessary medical equipment and supplies
  • Purchase humane traps 
  • Provide grants to TNR groups and veterinary colleges that help feral cats
  • Provide emergency funds to TNR groups
  • Help feral cat groups pay for other aspects of TNR not included above, such as a food bank for caretakers
  • Care for the feral cats rescued from San Nicolas Island by The HSUS

These dedicated groups have helped reduce the number of feral cats and improve their quality of life—as well as that of the community. Please support them in their work.
