Many cats and kittens are born outside or become homeless, and they receive no medical care. At Forgotten Cats, we operate a clinic that provides basic medical care, vaccinations, and spaying and neutering. Mast of these cats come in humane traps. We need volunteers to care for these cats and make them comfortable for their stay, usually 1-3 days. We will train you to safely and humanely care for cats in traps, using an isolator and other techniques. This requires a person who is compassionate and observant, as cats are monitored for reactions to surgery or other medical conditions. Many of the cats in traps are friendly, and they enter our population of adoptable cats. Others go to rescues who find foster homes, while others are feral and are returned to colony or community caretakers.

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.
