Shadow Cat Advocates is a community resource. We do not remove feral cats from your property...we do not take owner-surrendered cats...and we don't take cats or kittens that you've found. We do provide the verbal support you need in order to help you effectively and humanely manage feral cats in your area.  

If you have a tame (not feral) cat that needs re-homing, please consider contacting these organizations:


-Country Cats,

   Spotsylvania, VA

-Community Cats Rescue,       Fredericksburg, VA

-King Street Cats,         Alexandria, VA

Most organizations do not remove feral cats from where they are living.  It is the humane solution to implement TNR procedures: Trap, Neuter and Return. This will prevent colonies from continuing to populate.  Shadow Cat Advocates is currently working to complete TNR projects in several existing colonies.  These programs are nearing completion, and  we will not be starting any new ones in the future.

The back story: Shadow Cat President Cari was at Wawa about 2am when she heard a kitten crying. She realized it was coming from the big red truck parked next to her which belonged to a woman who had driven it from Wheeling West Virginia for a move to Fredericksburg. They opened the hood and lo and behold there was this little kitten crying up a storm. ​
