Volunteers Help Cats Find Loving Homes

Forgotten Cats is a no-kill organization that seeks to reduce the overpopulation of cats and kittens through sterilization and adoption. We offer low-cost spaying and neutering for pets and stray cats, and operate a TNVR (trap, neuter, vaccinate, return) program to assist feral cat colony caretakers. After cats have had surgery, the Recovery Person has a vital role in monitoring cats until they are awake and returning them to their crates. This person insures that cats are kept warm, checks breathing, assists in cleaning ears, clipping nails, checking wounds, and grooming as needed. No medical experience is necessary; we will train. Must be reliable, responsible, and able to commit a full day on Thursday or Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Great opportunity for veterinary students, retired persons, or any mature and responsible person looking for a volunteer experience that saves animals' lives.

About Forgotten Cats

Location:

PMB 422, 4023 Kennett Pike, Greenville, DE 19807, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to humanely reduce the homeless and unwanted cat population through Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR). Forgotten Cats finds homes for socialized cats through two PetSmart Adoption Centers in Delaware and three in Pennsylvania. We sterilize an average of 1000 cats in our two medical clinics and adopt out 80-100 socialized cats each month.

Description

By working with colony caretakers throughout Pennsylania, Delaware, and New Jersey, Forgotten Cats will trap, neuter, and return an entire colony, sterilizing and vaccinating all cats and providing medical treatment when necessary. Tame cats and kittens are transferred into our foster care system until properly socialized and eventually adopted into loving homes.

Most rescue groups' efforts are limited to finding homes for homeless cats, but the number of homeless cats and kittens born each day far exceed the number of homes available. That's why Forgotten Cats works to solve the unwanted cat probelm permanently and humanely. We also offer low-cost spay/neuter services and vaccinations to the general public, and provide education about spaying and neutering and the pet overpopulation problem.
