About

Alley Cat Allies is the global engine of change for cats. We protect and improve cats’ lives through our innovative, cutting-edge programs. We are seen around the world as a champion for the humane treatment of all cats.


We work toward a world where every cat is valued and protected and every community and shelter has policies and programs to save their lives.

When it comes to cat advocacy, Alley Cat Allies is working in communities to champion low-cost spay and neuter policies and programs, as well as lifesaving Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) and Shelter-Neuter-Return (SNR).

Once viewed as radical new concepts, these humane cat protocols are now mainstream. But we still have a lot of work to do to ensure policies and programs in every community serve the best interests of cats. We are a resource for tens of thousands of dedicated cat caregivers, advocates, nonprofit groups, and volunteers driving change and accelerating protection for millions of cats worldwide.

We have more than 650,000 supporters across the nation and around the world. Together with our team of cat experts, grassroots organizers, attorneys, and researchers, Alley Cat Allies pursues three main goals: reforming public policies around cats, savings cats' lives in shelters, and changing attitudes toward cats.
