The mission of Town Cats is to enrich the lives of free-roaming, feral, and/or abandoned cats in the Ocean City and surrounding communities by limiting the population growth and providing medical care through Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR), and affordable adoption services.
Town Cats was organized in 1998 in an attempt to deal with the feral cat population of Ocean City, Maryland. When they went home in the fall, many summer visitors would leave behind the cats they had been feeding all summer to face the winter without food or shelter. Those that survived would inevitably breed in the spring, producing litters of feral kittens that would eventually produce more unwanted kittens. Something had to be done to stop the litters and so Town Cats was born to spay/neuter/vaccinate the feral cats of Ocean City and place adoptable cats to loving homes. Our Goals:
* To CONTROL the growth of the local free-roaming cat population through TNR.
* To IMPROVE the quality of life for homeless cats and kittens through feral community care.
* To ENHANCE the community by reducing the occurrence of nuisance behaviors associated with mating such as spraying, yowling, and fighting so that people and cats can live in harmony.
* To EDUCATE and ENCOURAGE participation from community members, other animal support groups, and veterinarians on the advantages of a strong Trap/Neuter/Return program.
* To ENRICH the lives of adoptable cats by finding forever families that will love and care for them.
