What We Do

Community Cat Advocats is a small, local organizations with limited resources and we must maintain our focus on Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return and the welfare of community cats in the Winchester, Virginia area.

Therefore, our activities are limited to:

  • Supporting Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return as the best, long-term solution for controlling feral and free-roaming community cat overpopulation because the process stabilizes the population, improves the lives of cats, addresses neighborhood concerns and saves taxpayers money while embracing the principles of a caring community.
  • Supporting community cat colony caregivers through outreach, education, advocacy and access to low-cost spay/neuter providers and veterinary services.
  • Working toward making Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return a program that is fully understood, accepted, supported and practiced in the jurisdictions, animal welfare organizations, businesses and individuals in the Winchester, Virginia area.
