Our Mission is to prevent suffering , save lives, support and educate the community, by conducting our Gold Standard Community Cat Workshops. We advocate and teach methods to reduce the intake of feral/stray cats and kittens into the shelter system by teaching and implementing successful “Caretaker based solutions”.

Our purpose and commitments include:

• Contolling the feral cat population growth through TNR

• Providing network and support resources

• Neighborhood and city outreach

• Soliciting appropriate and humane long-term solutions

There are thousands of families of feral cats and kittens living in our cities and neighborhoods without proper nourishment, no population control in place and no feral cat caretaker

Ways You Can Help

A Tribute to Hyla Marrow

It is only through the kindness and generosity of our donors that we are able to care for those who care so much.

HYLA MARROW was born in 1950 and became an accomplished gymnast and dancer, leading to a long career as a stuntwoman and actress in over 80 films. She was also a successful day-trader and a passionate cat-lover who created a Trust that since her death in 2016 has benefited over 60 organizations that help homeless cats find medical care and forever homes. Feral Cat Caretaker’s Coalition is grateful to be one of those groups and thanks the Hyla Marrow Trust for its generous support of our rescue and adoption efforts.

Buddy the Cat

My name is BUDDY. I have lived outside all of my life with no human contact. At night I would wander into a backyard to rest on a cushion. Food was always there. One night there were two cushions and a cozy covering and even more food was there… One cold and rainy night I wandered into the garage and there was a bed and food. Slept in the garage at nights from then on. A kind lady would talk to me but I was scared. Soon, the door to the house inside the garage was left ajar. I wandered in at night and ran back into the garage before daylight. Soon, I wandered inside the house, during the day, as the kind lady was there to greet me and pet my head. There was lots of food in the house and things to play with.
