Our Vision

Our vision is a world where all cats' lives matter. A world where every cat knows love.

Our vision is a world where all cats' lives matter. A world where every cat knows love. Today, these cats are the lucky ones. Tomorrow, we will not have changed the world (yet) but we will have changed the world of cats in need throughout the communities of Collier County. It is a journey that For the Love of Cats will remain on. The day that our vision is fulfilled is a long way off. Our goal is to fuel the engine of change through education, collaboration, support and partnership with the community, and other like minded groups throughout Southwest Florida.

Our Mission

Our mission is to end the cruelty of pet over-population in Collier County. Our programs include working with the community to TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) stray, community and feral cats, assisting underserved communities and low-income members of the public with spay/neuter, wellness, and emergency veterinary care along with other support programs to help people to keep their pets. 

Our mission is to end the cruelty of cat overpopulation in Collier County, FL. 

Our Goal

Our goal is to make a difference in the lives
of Collier County's cats
in need.

Our goal is to make a difference in the lives of Collier County's cats in need. Kittens need to be rescued. Abandoned, stray, and community cats need to be fixed, vaccinated and cared for. Sick and injured cats from low-income families in underserved communities need preventative and emergency veterinary care. Older cats need promotion and financial incentive to get them adopted from shelters and into quiet, loving homes. These are big goals but ones that For the Love of Cats can achieve with your help.
