Alley Cat Allies’ National Conference—A Milestone in the Movement to Save Cats


More than 350 cat lovers from 37 states—and two other countries—spent last weekend learning how to build safe communities for cats at our Architects of Change for Cats National Conference near Washington, D.C. Animal control officers, shelter leaders, veterinarians, and feral cat advocates from across the nation spoke about their successes in abolishing the failed catch-and-kill approach for outdoor cats and embracing Trap-Neuter-Return. The attendance and success stories shared at this monumental three-day conference are more proof that we’ve reached a tipping point in the movement to protect cats. As Alley Cat Allies President Becky Robinson said in her opening remarks, “Trap-Neuter-Return has officially moved into the mainstream and continues to build momentum.”

Check out our conference slideshow to see everything from our Frank the Feral mascot high-fiving a baby to a “kitty ditty” performance by John Fulton, host of Animal Planet’s Must Love Cats!

Adoptable Cats: Meet Ichabod and Shadow!


This brother and sister duo used to live in an outdoor colony, but were found during a Trap-Neuter-Return effort and now live in a foster home waiting for the perfect adopter. Ichabod is an adorable orange tabby, and his sister Shadow is a beautiful tortie. They’re both experts at the cat version of “puppy dog eyes” and have already stolen the hearts of our staff. Ichabod and Shadow are loving, playful, cuddly, great with kids, and will fill your home with joy! They are best friends and would like to be adopted together.

Learn more about Ichabod and Shadow and our other adoptable cats.

Alley Cat Allies First Organization to Receive New Zealand Assisi Award


Alley Cat Allies was honored last month with the New Zealand Companion Animal Council’s Assisi Award in recognition of outstanding service to animals. This is the first time the award has been presented to an organization rather than an individual. Our Associate Director of Law & Policy Will Gomaa accepted the award at the 24th annual New Zealand Companion Animal Conference in Auckland, where he also gave a presentation about the effectiveness of Trap-Neuter-Return.
