When Cats Alive! was organized out mission was to reduce the number of feral cats in the SLV by getting then spayed or neutered and released back into their original environment. When possible, we would also find a good home for kittens and abandoned cats.
We donít have a cat shelter and we arenít authorized to be a rescue operation.
Our local veterinarians have been extremely cooperative as they are very aware of the overpopulation problem. We estimate that there are at least 3,500 feral cats in Alamosa, and probably thousands in the Valley. No other organization, law enforcement or government agency is providing help or support for them. Volunteers are their only source of hope.
At this time, we havenít found a traveling vet clinic to help pet owners or abandoned and feral cats.
Meanwhile, we have many, many kind people who have fed, nurtured and protected, some fore as along as 15 or 20 years.
If you need cat food, please call me as I have some to share.
We are in the process of applying for grants, which will help, hopefully, before winter!
Our work has just begun.
Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.
