About

San Antonio Feral Cat Coalition, a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Corporation, is organized to address issues related to feral cats in the San Antonio area. We are all volunteers and serve to improve the welfare of feral cats in our community through a variety of means to reduce their populations through humane programs.

What We’re Working On

  • Publicity campaign to inform the residents of San Antonio about what we do and why we do it.
  • Develop Cat Advocacy Teams to talk with HOA’s, apartments complexes and businesses about the city-endorsed method to reduce the numbers of outside cats: TNR.
  • Creating a network of concerned citizens who will help each other with the feeding and TNR of outside cats.
  •  Providing colony caregivers with TNR assistance and food.
  • Being an advocate for colony caregivers and their cats by offering legal resources to assist with interpretation of the animal laws.
  •  Membership that will grow leaders to further the work we are doing on behalf of the thousands of community cats.
  • Assisting people in starting their own managed cat colony by providing information, expertise, advice, support and traps

If you would like to help with any of our ongoing programs or become a feral cat advocate, call us or sign up to be a volunteer – we need you and the cats need you!
