We Need Your Help

For the Love of Cats, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to saving the lives of abandoned cats and kittens in the community of Southern Collier County, Florida. 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.

Volunteer Opportunities


Engage our community from the For the Love of Cats booth at local events in Naples and Marco Island. distribute materials, offer help and resources, encourage donations, and sell purrfect gifts. 


Throughout the year, we sometimes rescue kittens or young cats that need a short time with a foster family to help them know love and kindness that will help them be the very best pet for their new family.  


This person sets and retrieves traps for feral and abandoned cats with direction from one of the Board of Directors. This entails baiting the traps, sometimes waiting for hours to trap a cat manually and then transporting it back and forth to the veterinarian.

Volunteer Spotlight

Jeanette Jewett, aka "JJ"

JJ not only helps us with trapping cats, her first love, but also takes the time to collect the money from the various donation boxes around the Marco Island area. In the last few months, she has helped trap a number of cats. Recently, several cats who clearly once had a home have been found abandoned on Marco Island.  JJ trapped these cats and took them to DAS where they were adopted.

In her spare time, JJ also enjoys birding. Her love of all animals is a natural extension to her volunteer work with not only For the Love of Cats, but bird organizations as well.


Before and after trapping cats at Six Ls Farm Road, JJ can be spotted behind the lens of her camera, taking photos of birds (and cats, too!). Thank you, JJ, for your devotion to rescuing abandoned cats, doing TNR for community cats and helping us in so many ways!
