Outcast Cat Help is a 501(c)(3) California Public Benefit Corporation dedicated to helping the community humanely control and care for the stray and feral cat population. We are 100% volunteer operated with no paid staff.
Outcast Cat Help is a TRUE no-kill organization. We believe in letting cats live their lives and only in cases of terminal and painful illness are cats compassionately euthanized because there is no reasonable alternative.
Outcast Cat Help treats all cats equally while prioritizing each cat’s individual health needs. We believe that every cat is entitled to the same high quality veterinary care, regardless of age, amicability, ownership or health issue.
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the most humane and effective way to control the stray and feral cat population at this time. Cats are trapped, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, eartipped and returned to where they were trapped. Compassionate humans (caretakers) provide food and fresh water daily. Those caretakers monitor the cat population for new cats so that those cats can be spayed/neutered. Caretakers also monitor the health of the cats in the event that medical attention is required. Overtime, the cat population is reduced by fewer births and through natural attrition. TNR is used by numerous animal rescue organizations and individuals in all types of communities across the United States and internationally.
