Shadow Cat Advocates

Dedicated to Spaying and Neutering Homeless Cats

Our Mission

Shadow Cat Advocates (SCA) is a non-profit organization and community resource.  Our mission is to aid, assist, protect, and defend feral cats throughout Stafford, Fredericksburg, and Spotsylvania, VA.   We provide Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) services, education, outreach and rescue services.

Based on the unique needs of each cat we come into contact with, we may provide foster care and adoptive services to cats and kittens we trap.  The cats and kittens we rescue are evaluated by a Veterinarian, receive appropriate medical care, and the cats and kittens will either be returned to their home colony or enter foster care where we will seek to find loving adoptive homes for each cat.  Our cats and kittens available for adoption are advertised on our SCA website, on Pet Finders and on our Facebook page.

If you are in need of assistance to humanly manage feral cats residing in  Stafford, Fredericksburg, and Spotsylvania, VA, SCA may be able to loan out our traps, provide TNR guidance, and offer verbal support.  Our services are provided entirely by volunteers and we have no paid staff members.  We rely on grants and donations to support our efforts.

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR)

Loan Traps

TNR Guidance

Community Outreach

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

  • Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA)
  • Country Cats, Spotsylvania, VA
  • Community Cats Rescue, Fredericksburg, VA
  • King Street Cats, Alexandria, VA

Please note that 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. TNR prevents feral colonies from continuing to populate. SCA is currently working to complete TNR projects in several existing colonies. These programs are nearing completion and we will not be assuming any additional TNR projects.
