Shadow Cat Advocates

Dedicated to Spaying and Neutering Homeless Cats

Our Mission

Our mission, first and foremost, is to provide assistance to abandoned and forgotten (feral) cats throughout the greater Fredericksburg, Virginia area, including the counties of Stafford and Spotsylvania.

Shadow Cat Advocates is a community resource, not a rescue. We will not remove feral cats from your property or take owner surrendered cats. We will provide you the tools and support you need to effectively and humanely manage feral cats.

Community Outreach

Shadow Cat Advocates is a community resource.

We do not:

  • remove feral cats from your property.
  • take owner-surrendered cats
  • 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:

  • ​SPCA
  • 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.
