ACAT formed in early 2010 because of a need to help cats and to help humans help cats. Their mission includes rescue, education, outreach and coordination with other rescue groups, both private and government.
ACAT is a no-kill organization. That means each cat that come into ACAT’s care is kept in the organization until it can be found a home or, in rare instance, transferred to another organization that can better find a home for the cat. Cats are only euthanized for medical reasons, on advice of a veterinarian.
ACAT isn’t just about helping those cats and kittens we home. It’s about helping reduce the number of unwanted pets through education. ACAT teams with other rescue organizations to spread the word that pets need to be spayed and neutered before they near breeding age.
