Mission Statement

Shadow Cats will respect and show compassion to all animals. We will improve the lives of abused, abandoned, feral, stray, and injured cats. We will promote spay and neuter programs, promote Trap, Neuter and Return as the most humane method of effecting positive change in feral cat populations, provide educational and informational assistance to the public, re-home socialized cats and kittens and provide medical care to those cats under Shadow Cats guardianship.

Description

Shadow Cats is a 501c3 non-profit all volunteer group of individuals dedicated to improving the lives of abused, abandoned, feral, stray, and injured cats in Round Rock and Austin. We do not take in owner-released animals, but instead focus our efforts into helping un-owned stray and feral cats and kittens, through Trap-Neuter-Return-Maintain and/or other socialization and relocation programs. While Shadow Cats focus is not on adoption, we feel that every animal deserves the best possible placement, so socialized and friendly cats are placed into foster homes, and then join our adoption program. For animals we are unable to TNRM, who for whatever reason are unable to return to their original colony, and are un-adoptable due to medical or behavioral issues, we provide sanctuary. Our sanctuary is located in Round Rock, but we have fosters and volunteers all over Austin and it's surrounding areas.

Would you recommend Shadowcats Rescue?

by Stacy M. (January 2, 2009)
I would highly recommend this volunteer opportunity for anyone who has flexible availability in the mornings and a real passion for helping to control the pet population. This grassroots group is really trying to make a difference with their efforts and they have hearts of gold. I volunteered as a once-a-week feeder for a few months. The job is relatively simple, although some mornings it did take me more than 30 minutes. The only criticism I have is that this is not a good job for anyone who works a regular 9-5 office job. The work is messy and involves walking through or climbing around in muddy, dirty, heavily overgrown shrubbery or slightly wooded areas. I attempted to do the feeding before going to work in the mornings, but wound up with mud, dirt and grime all over my work clothes by 7 am. There is also some resistance from the residents of surrounding neighborhoods, who view the cats as pests. This volunteer job is great if you don't mind getting a little dirty.
