Home

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.

Meet Boba and Pearl, a bonded pair of kitten siblings! They are approximately 6 months old. Boba and Pearl were found in a greenspace when they were about two months old. Boba’s right eye was injured living outside and it needed to be removed. Having one eye doesn’t stop him getting into any kitten shenanigans though - he loves to climb the cat trees and sit at the very top. He does startle easily, which is why an adult-only, quiet home is necessary. Pearl developed pneumonia living outside Thanks to antibiotics, she’s much stronger now and almost as big as her brother. Pearl loves to give kisses, especially on your nose! Both of them love to watch television and are lap kitties. They are both extremely curious kittens and climbed the Christmas tree as soon as they set their sites on it. They also like to try and eat things they shouldn’t, so their adopters need to be really careful about what is in their environment. They love to play - especially with mouse toys - and can entertain themselves for hours. They are also avid birders and enjoy sharing their window seat. After all of their medication, they’ve gotten used to their daily Churu snack and will love you forever if you keep up the tradition. Boba and Pearl would love to meet you at our adoption event on December 10. However, they will not be available to go to their new home until after December 15. Together, they make a lively pair that will keep you on your toes! What Boba and Pearl are looking for in a home: -They want to stay together forever and must be adopted as a pair. -They can get nervous, so they need a kind and patient guide to help them feel comfortable with new experiences -They have lots of kitten energy and will benefit from plenty of active play time. -They feel at ease in a quiet and calm environment. -They love to eat plants so their future home must only have cat-safe plants. -They need to live indoors only. -They need to be the only pets in the house. -They need a quiet, adult-only home. All Alley Cat Projects cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated prior to adoption. Thank you for your interest in Boba and Pearl!

Meet the Powerpuff Girls, a trio of curious and cuddly kitten sisters! They are approximately 4 months old. Blossom is a short-haired gray and white tabby who loves to relax and watch kitten tv, play with foam earplugs, and explore.

  • Domestic Short Hair

  • Housebroken
  • Vaccinations up to date

Meet Amelia, a beautiful blue-eyed, short-haired lynx point girl. She is approximately 1.5 years old. This sweet, friendly, and affectionate mama is ready to be pampered, spoiled, and loved. Amelia once knew what it was like to be indoors and someone’s companion, but she sadly wasn’t spayed and had not one but two litter of kittens! Amelia and her kittens were put outside to fend for themselves before Alley Cat Project came to their rescue. Amelia has been a wonderful, attentive mom to her kittens, but now she’s ready to be your tv watching/book reading sidekick. She'd be a wonderful addition to a home not looking for kitten energy or mischief. While Amelia enjoys company (and conversation), she doesn’t need constant attention and does fine hanging out on her own. If you work outside the home, she would be fine with this arrangement as long as you make up for that with Churu treats! (Amelia is very treat motivated.) Amelia also loves pets—full head to tail massages all over her silky soft fur—and enjoys time on your lap. And she doesn’t mind being picked up… Amelia is just purrfect! See more of Amelia on Instagram: @Foster_Queenk What Amelia is looking for in a home: - She needs to live indoors only. - She has no known history with other cats besides her kittens, but she may enjoy having a feline friend. - She has no known history with dogs. - She has no known history with children. - She currently eats Hill’s Science Sensitive Stomach & Skin mixed with FortiFlora probiotics for an extra digestive boost. She may be fine with regular cat food with a gradual introduction. All Alley Cat Projects cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated prior to adoption.

Meet Freya and Freyr, a bonded pair of kitten siblings! They are approximately 6 months old. Freya is a brave adventurer, with a distinctive tan-brown spot on her face that differentiates her from her brother. She's a medium hair grey tabby with a magnificent floofy tail. She's always curious and looking to explore, but is new to indoor life with humans and tries to tell you she's the fiercest by hissing. She's easy to tempt with Churu, wand toys, and cursor-like objects on the TV. She's not super vocal but will chirrup at her prey and stalk you if you she sees you coming. Freyr is also a medium hair grey tabby who's the timider one of the duo. He loves his enclosed spaces but once he sees or hears his sister playing he'll stick his head out and sometimes the whole rest of him will follow too! He will accept head pets so long as the incoming hand has already been accepted as friendly, but is not super into being picked up. Like his sister, he also loves Churu and wand toys. Together, they make a majestic pair.

They are sweet, cuddly, and ever so entertaining!

Meet Armand and Ruth, a pair of sweet and adorable kitten siblings! They are approximately 4 months old. Armand is a short-haired gray tabby, while Ruth is a short-haired white and brown tabby. When not wrestling, playing, and chasing at a boisterous full tilt, they recharge by snuggling on their foster mom’s lap, purring up a storm. They love toys of all kinds but the laser pointer is definitely their favorite!

Meet Mimi! Quietly playful and calm. Mimi is a sweet young lady, 4 to 5 years old. Mimi is a Domestic Shorthair bunny soft beauty sporting a pristine black and white “Cow Girl” coat that she keeps purfectly groomed. Mimi loves to chase flying and crawling toys like Da’ bird, with or without the feathers. She loves to scratch on her catnip laden cardboard pad or sit on her heated bed and watch birds outside the window. While not particularly food motivated, Mimi’s favorite treat is freeze dried chicken bites as a little appetizer or a between meal snack . She is pretty quiet, but we can tell she has a bit of a sense of humor. What Mimi is looking for in her forever indoor home is a soft heated bed and a seat at the window with a view. Before her foster home, Mimi had been living outside and when she was brought in and it took a few months for her to feel comfortable enough to not hide all the time. Mimi can get nervous, so she needs a kind and patient guide to help her feel comfortable with new experiences. While Mimi loves to chase toys and play, she feels most at ease in a quiet, calm indoor only home. Mimi has been in foster care with another cat that she gets along with but she would most likely enjoy a home where she is the only cat. She has no known history of living with a dog. Mimi has no known experience of living with children. Quiet, mature kids that respect her space may be ok. All Alley Cat Project cats are spayed/neutered, microchipped and vaccinated prior to adoption. Thank you for your interested in Mimi.

Alley Cat Project rescues feral cats, primarily through "TNR" (Trap-Neuter-Return). Occasionally, the feral cats cannot be returned to the site where they were previously living and must be relocated. We prefer that they go to indoor-only "mouser" type of working homes like warehouses, large shops, Industrial settings, etc., where they can perform an organic rodent control service for you, without being exposed to hazards outdoors. We have placed many cats in settings of this type with great success. The cats will typically be very shy and seldom seen at first. They may gain trust and confidence over time and become more friendly. Typically, they hide during the day and come out at night to patrol for rodents. They are not aggressive, unless cornered and force to be handled against their will. They use litter boxes. They are very little trouble. Do you have a work setting as described above, where these "working cats" can have a home? If you do, please respond to this posting with a little bit of information about where you are located, and what the setting/situation there is like. Thank you! View full description »

Our team entirely consists of volunteers, and we always welcome help!

Here are the current volunteer roles in need of support:

Social Media, Marketing & Events

We currently have no open opportunities for marketing, social media or event support. Please check back with us another time.

Trapping and Transport Team

Field Operative/Trapper:

  • This works requires training, passion for cats, tireless energy, lack of timidity, a flexible schedule or ability to work on trapping after work hours, a dependable vehicle, ability to lift, carry, and transport traps, carriers, and cats in traps and carriers. Prior experience is preferred, but training and mentoring will be provided. Note:  most of our trapping needs are south of downtown.

Clinic Transport: 

  • Early morning transport of cats to clinic in Lynnwood, Washington.  Note:  this may require holding the cats overnight in traps or carriers the night before clinic at your home or garage.  Check in time is currently 7:30 AM.

Kennel Care and Cleaning:

  • Cleaning kennels, litter boxes, traps, carriers, sweep and mop floor. Frequency depends on demand, linked to trapping efforts.  Location:  Magnolia

If you are ready to join us, please fill out our volunteer information form.

VOLUNTEER DUTIES AND DESCRIPTIONS Here are some of the things we do. Check back often as our needs change, especially during kitten season.

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 a wild kitten to have a better life? If you have prior experience working with kittens, are patient and living in a calm and stable environment, and are home most days or evenings, then you may be a great candidate to help a little kitten learn to trust people.  Kittens born to stray mothers can be socialized within the first 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.

 

 

If you are ready to join us, please fill out our volunteer information form.
