Alley Cat Rescue Gives Thanks


With an economic crisis looming, cats have been faced with difficult times…they have been relinquished to shelters, abandoned in empty homes, and kicked out into the streets. But despite these hardships, cats across the country and here at ACR still have reason to celebrate. In the mix of hard times, dedication and a little courage bring small victories. ACR would like to give thanks for our victories this past year, no matter how big or small.

  • 462 cats were spayed or neutered, with 254 of them being TNRed.
  • 130 cats found permanent loving homes.
  • 160 cats were rescued from Rosecroft Racetrack after the facility closed.
  • We received over $7000 worth of item donations such as litter, food, blankets, cat furniture, toys).
  • We launched National Free Feral Cat Spay Day on April 27, 2010.
  •           150 veterinary clinics across the United States and South Africa participated.
  •           Over 200 feral cats were TNRed.
  • We launched our new E-newsletter, thanks to Network for Good and member donations.
  •            More than 2600 members receive our electronic alerts.
  • We attended the Best Friend’s No More Homeless Pets National Conference.
And Alley Cat Rescue is thankful for our amazing supporters! You've made each of these victories possible. Thank YOU!
