About Us

Cari Bartz

Founder/President

Our Mission

Our mission, first and foremost, is to provide assistance to all the 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.

Genuine concern

Every one of us is a pet-owner and we treat all of our kitties like they are our own.
