We Need Your Help
For the Love of Cats, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization located in Marco Island, FL that is dedicated to saving the lives of abandoned cats and kittens in the community. We are an animal welfare group operating through the generous donations of the public since 2002.
Our mission is to end the cruelty of pet over-population. Our programs include working with the community to sterilize stray, community and feral cats through TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return), assisting the low income public in need with low cost spay/neuter, wellness and emergency veterinary care along with other support programs to help people to keep their pets.
Our vision is a world where all cats' lives matter.
Our local feral communities need food and water distributed on a daily basis. We also need loving eyes to look out for possible injuries or other medical needs that may require our attention.

In the summer of 2005 my wife, Lyne, heard about For the Love of Cats (FLOC) and started volunteering in August. She was having so much fun I joined her.
We always had cats and dogs in our family but, you only get to enjoy puppies and kittens for several months before they age out of that adorable stage. FLOC gave us the “Groundhog Day” opportunity to have batch after batch of kittens to socialize and enjoy.
We were assigned the Thursday night shift cleaning cages, medicating sick felines, and feeding all the fur balls. We also visited the shelter several other days a week because we enjoyed it so much. Free mental health breaks while helping kittens and cats.
A few months after I started volunteering at FLOC the donation boxes they’d placed around the island needed someone else to take over, so I offered to do it. I’d pick up the money once a month, count the donations by location, roll the coins in sleeves, and enter the information in a spreadsheet. I did this for over seven years.
