Community Cats
Ear tipped community cats

We’re working on a very exciting project and we could use your help! The Houston community cat program has a three-year plan to provide spay/neuter for 7500 cats.

This lifesaving endeavor will involve trapping, neutering, vaccinating and returning community cats to their original outdoor locations. Not only is this the most humane method of preventing cats from entering the shelter system, but it’s also the most effective.

To carry out this huge community effort, we’re going to need a few helpful hands like yours to help transport cats back to their outdoor homes in Harris County. Volunteering just a couple of hours a week will make a big difference in saving cats' lives! We also have volunteer opportunities to assist with humanely trapping cats and canvassing local neighborhoods.

To learn more, please see our position descriptions for details:

If you’re interested in volunteering to help the cats, or if you have any questions, please email us at Our office is located in the Harris County Animal Shelter at 612 Canino Rd.

The Houston community cat program is a partnership between Best Friends Animal Society and Harris County Animal Shelter. We can’t wait to hear from you, as we work together to save the lives of community cats.
