Carroll Feral Cat Care is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization focused on providing financial assistance for the feral/community cats. Financial assistance covers for spaying/neutering, vaccinations, food, shelter and medical on a discretionary basis. The organization also educates the public on the need for responsible action and co-existence between feral/community cats and humans. By financially supporting this organization, you donations help decrease the cat population and saves many lives! 100% of donations go directly to the homeless cats.
WHAT IS A FERAL CAT? A feral cat is a cat which has never had any human contact. They are very fearful of people and try to survive outdoors in all weather elements, with little food and shelter. Best suited for barn home placements.
WHAT IS A COMMUNITY CAT? A community cat may have once had an owner and is somewhat social. These cats co-exist with other feral cat colonies. They still may fear humans but only due to it being out on their own for an extended period of time. These cats sometimes can be re-socialized and adopted.
FACT: The most comprehensive study to date indicates that 72% of all cats entering animal control pounds and shelters are killed. Just 23% are adopted and only 2% are reunited with their owners. For feral cats, the kill rate in pounds and shelters rises to virtually 100%. (Statistics are from the National Council on Pet Population Study and Policy Shelter Statistics Survey, 1994-97. Although dated, it remains the most comprehensive and rigorous study that exists.)

Why Carroll Feral Cat Care?
Over the past 17 years I have assisted the feral/community cats on many levels: trapping, relocation, marketing adoptable kittens and cats, providing basic needs such as food, shelter and most importantly spaying/neutering and vaccinating each cat through low cost vet clinics.
My main focus is to create a pool of funds to help cat caretakers who are dealing with the same issues and provide a resource for them which is so desperately needed. The more people involved with supporting this fund, the easier it will become on others who care for these neglected cats. Your financial support is greatly needed and appreciated.
