We work toward the humane management and reduction of street cats, stray and feral, through a Trap Neuter Return (TNR) program. We work with communities to address the issue of street cats, provide support to cat care givers and use the opportunity to teach respect for all of life and can help to counteract violence at it’s core.

Has CatVando helped you?

Over the years, we have helped many people in many ways, when it comes to caring for cats.

It is always heart-warming to read about people rescuing animals in distress, and it can often bring tears of joy when there is a happy ending.

We now have a page on our website that's dedicated to CatVando's success stories.

If you would like to submit your OWN story, we'd love to hear from you!

Please email us, telling us how CatVando has helped you, and include your first name and your town.
(If you'd prefer, we can post your story "From: Annonymous, IL")

Help The Residents And Cats
In Your Community

Does someone in your neighborhood feed cats? It might be someone who's isolated, or doesn't know about TNR, or is fearful that their cats may be taken away and killed.

You can help - we can help you to help them. Simply download our
'Seeing Street Cats' brochure (English or Espanol) and put it in their door (not mailbox please). It would be best if you could talk to them or write a personal note.

Remember, it wasn't long ago and they may have been threatened with a citation or the threat of trap and remove.

The 2014 trapping season has now started, and we are accepting TNR appointments.

Beat the rush, and get signed up now!

Click HERE to fill out the form, and we will contact you to confirm your appointment.

Make this the year to get those cats TNR'd!
