Who We Are
For the Love of Cats, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization serving Collier County, FL. Since 2002, we have been dedicated to saving the lives of cats and kittens in need in our community. Our programs focus on the needs of the underserved throughout the county.
Our name embodies our spirit and passion to help cats in need. Whether it is a starving abandoned pet, an injured or pregnant cat, an old cat that needs a home, kittens that need rescuing, or community cats that need a caregiver, we are answering the calls for help with solutions and resources. Our roots are in TNR (trap,neuter,return) for free roaming community cats but our vision is to improve the life of any cat in need. We work together with every rescue group and organization in Collier County to live our mission and goals every day. Learn more
Our mission is to end the cruelty of pet overpopulation. Donated funds go directly towards our programs that include working with the community to sterilize stray and feral cats through TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return), assisting low income families with emergency, wellness, and spay/neuter veterinary care and subsidize adoption fees for senior cats to senior citizens along with other support programs to help people keep their pets.
We are proud of the impact we have had on our community and the thousands of cats' lives we have saved, the lives we have enriched, the families we have helped. Everyday we are making a difference.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
Your donation will save the lives of cats and kittens in our underserved community. Your support will find a new home for a lonely senior cat, help rescue an abandoned litter of kittens, fix a sweet female cat that keeps having litter after litter, remove a painful tooth for a loving cat of a low income family, and save more lives in need. Please consider a generous gift today. Purrs of Gratitude!
