A few years ago I had a brush with death due to an unexpected medical condition. Since then, I’ve felt that I was given a second chance in life. I created Love for Cats as a nonprofit organization to give homeless cats a second chance as well.

The hope is to get those adoptable cats out of the street and place them in a loving home where they will no longer experience hunger, sickness, or danger. Please help us help them. Thank you.

ABOUT US

Love for Cats, Trapping, and Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in South Florida. Our goal is to promote cat adoptions and reduce the population of homeless cats. We work closely with a network of shelters, veterinarians, foster parents, and cat lovers to achieve these goals.

At Love for Cats we believe that:

  • Cats should be free from hunger.

  • Cats should be free from neglect and abuse.

  • Cats should be free from the harsh elements.

  • Cats should be free from injury and disease.

Over the years we have trapped more than 3,000 cats and fostered or placed for adoption hundreds of cats in forever homes. We support the Trap-Neuter-Return position of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and The Humane Society of the United States.

We consider our work a labor of love.

OUR LEADERSHIP

It all began with one black kitten. I found her on a parking lot at work. She was alone and seemed extremely hungry when offered food.

We named her “Lucky” and we were friends for nine beautiful years. She followed me everywhere, even when taking my dog for a walk, and with no leash!

In 2012, a near-fatal aneurysm almost stopped me dead in my tracks. Since then, I’ve felt that I’ve been given a second chance in life. I started volunteering at a shelter and realized the need to help homelss cats.

I began trapping cats and taking them to shelters where they could be adopted and fostered.

After a year of buying traps, nets, litter boxes, and having nearly 25 kittens in my garage for adoption, someone suggested I start a nonprofit.

In early 2018 I took the jump and started a nonprofit. My dream, Love for Cats, was born.

Since then, we estimate we’ve helped more than 1000 cats per year. On average, we help about 50-100 homeless cats per month by providing medical care, TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return), or finding them a forever home.
