National Feral Cat Day

Join us on Saturday, October 11th, 1-4 pm at our Eastgate Adoption Center to learn more about Trap/Neuter/Release and caring for feral cat colonies.

Low-cost shelter kits will be available for $25. The kits went fast last year so come early to get yours! Our food bank will also be open to support Frederick County residents who care for feral cats.

Feral Cat Facts

Feral cats have lived alongside humans for more than 10,000 years. They are the same species as pet cats. Feral cats, also called community or outdoor cats, live in groups called colonies and can thrive in every landscape. They are just as healthy as pet cats, but they are not socialized to humans and are therefore unadoptable.

Trap-Neuter-Return—a humane approach to managing and caring for feral cats—is the only effective method of stabilizing feral cat colonies. In the last decade, the number of local governments with official policies endorsing TNR for feral cats has increased tenfold, with hundreds of cities and towns successfully carrying out TNR.

However, in the majority of cities, feral cats are still caught and brought to animal pounds and shelters where they are killed. The shelter system is the number one cause of death for cats in the United States. About 70% of cats who enter shelters are killed there, including virtually 100% of feral cats. That’s why it’s so important for people like you to use National Feral Cat Day®, and every day, to help build more compassionate communities for cats.

Barn Cats Available!

Ideal residents for barns or stables

Healthy, sterilized cats need homes! These cats are in need of a home at a farm, horse stable, or other suitable outdoor environment with shelter.

All the cats have been sterilized and vaccinated against rabies and now need an outdoor home where they can live out their lives.

Caretaker responsibilities include providing daily food and water, protection from the elements and long-term veterinary care.

Be prepared for a brief period of adjustment. Moving to a new home is stressful for anyone, cats included! After a short stay in secure confi nement, the cats will accept their new home and be chasing mice out of your grain with enthusiasm.

Guidance and help will be provided during relocation process.

If you would like to adopt a cat(s), please contact us at 301.663.5855 or Email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
