Help Feed NYC’s Feral & Stray Community Cats This Year A Project of New York City Feral Cat Initiative

Helping NYC's Most Vulnerable Cats

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the humane, effective community cat management program during which feral and stray cats are trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, left eartipped for identification, returned to their colonies, and fed and monitored by volunteer caretakers. A program of the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, the NYC Feral Cat Initiative (NYCFCI) provides vital training, services, and support for Certified TNR Caretakers throughout New York City.

This fall and winter the NYCFCI has hosted three cat food giveaways to support NYC's Certified TNR Caretakers and the community cats in their care in all five boroughs. In response to several generous in-kind food donations, the Alliance dedicated the NYCFCI's resources to the transport, storage, and coordination of these large-scale giveaways that placed 75,000 pounds of canned and dry cat food in the hands of over 700 volunteer caretakers, who are working hard to keep colonies warm and safe. During our most recent giveaway, the NYCFCI was also able to supply straw for shelter insulation to those in need. Food, fresh water, and shelter remain critically important this time of year for cats living outdoors as we brace for more cold temperatures to come.

How Does Your Donation Help?

Your tax-deductible contribution to the NYCFCI Emergency Food Fund this month will help us continue to support Certified TNR Caretakers through large- and small-scale cat food giveaways this year. A $25 donation can feed 50 community cats for one day. Volunteer caretakers will save the lives of thousands of NYC cats in 2016, and your support will help them fulfill this important mission.
