Welcome to Alley Cat Project! We are a small, but passionate group of volunteers working to reduce the overpopulation of cats in Seattle using humane solutions.

Our mission is to ensure that every cat has a good home.

What We Do

Here are some things we do to help Seattle’s feral, stray and abandoned cats:

  • Trap, Neuter (or spay), and Return (TNR) feral cats to their colonies.  TNR is a humane solution to the problem of unowned free roaming cats.
  • Deliver friendly cats who were lost or abandoned to Seattle Animal Shelter so that they can be redeemed by an owner or adopted to a new family.
  • Socialize semi-friendly kittens and cats so they can be adopted as pets.
  • Provide basic medical care, nutritious food, and safe and sanitary conditions to all cats after alteration.

Our team entirely consists of volunteers, and we always welcome help! Here are some of the things we do:

Capture – Do you have a car and flexibility during the evening hours?  Capturing cats works best in the evening when cats are hungry and active.

Holding and Drop off – Are you an early riser with a car and enclosed garage, shed, or basement?  If so, you’re a great candidate to help transport cats to the Spay/Neuter clinic in Lynnwood on weekdays and Sunday mornings.

Pickup and Recovery –  Do you have a car and flexible schedule during the day?  You could help picking up cats after their surgeries and keeping them warm for one or two days while they recover.

Fostering Kittens – Want to tame awild kitten to have a better life? If you have prior experience working withkittens, are patient and living in a calm and stableenvironment, and are home most days or evenings, then you may be agreat candidate to help a little kitten learn to trustpeople.  Kittens born to stray mothers can be socialized within thefirst few weeks of their life.

Working Cats Program – We help unwanted adult cats find permanent homes in warehouses, breweries, and other places where mousers are needed. If you don’t mind driving moderate distances,  and want the thrill of matching people with working cats, this might be a great opportunity for you.
