Foster homes are needed for kittens and cats until they find their forever homes. By providing a safe and nurturing environment, we are able to continue our mission to rescue cats and kittens and find them loving adoptive homes.

We provide information, education, support, and help with food, litter, and other supplies, if needed. All Veterinary care is taken care of by the agency.

For more information on fostering and other volunteer opportunities with Shadow Cat Advocates, please visit our website at: www.shadowcatadvocates.org or send an email to: info@shadowcatadvocates.org.

Mission Statement

Our mission is first and foremost to spay and neuter, aid, assist, protect and defend feral cats throughout the greater Fredericksburg, Virginia area.

Description

We concentrate on the following:

- Promote and implement Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR)
- Gain and maintain the support of local governments and the communities they serve for TNR as the only proven method of regional feral cat population management.
- Raise public awareness of and involvement with, the issues surrounding feral cat colonies through community education.
- Form a cooperative partnership with local Animal Control agencies and shelters in order to facilitate the referral of feral cat complaints, questions, concerns and problems from Animal Control to a coordinated group of volunteer individuals and organizations with the motivation, resources and manpower to address them effectively, efficiently and humanely, primarily through the use of TNR, and when necessary, relocation of entire colonies or parts of colonies.
- Perform other services as required to mitigate nuisance behaviors reported to Animal Control to the extent that we are willing, able, qualified and equipped to do so.
- Recruit and educate volunteers to carry out the day-to-day operations in support of this mission, including, but not limited to: acting as caregivers for colonies in which TNR has been implemented; maintaining records of feral colony locations, sizes, status and caregivers; answering, addressing and/or redirecting referred complaints, questions, concerns and problems involving feral cat colonies; trapping and transporting cats from colony sites to spay/neuter clinics and back.
- Raise funds through grants, donations or other means to cover expenses incurred in carrying out this mission, to the extent that it is not subsidized by public funding provided by local government(s) or government agencies.

During the course of this work, there are times when, despite our best efforts, new kittens arrive. These kittens are removed and taken to the vet for checkups. They are tested for Feline Leukemina/FIV and parasites. They are given medical treatment as needed, and placed in a foster home. The kittens are then socialized and taken care of. The result is a disease/parasite free kitten who is well adjusted and ready to go to a new, permanent home.
