Advocating for Cats

Join Feline Rescue in observing National Feral Cat Day. Alley Cat Allies launched National Feral Cat Day October 16th, 2001 to promote Trap-Neuter-Return, to raise awareness about feral cats, and to recognize the millions of compassionate Americans who care for them.


Feline Rescue is sponsoring a Spay/Neuter Campaign for Community Cats during October.  Volunteers will hit the streets in targeted areas of St. Paul to distribute information on caring for outdoor cats, make sure that folks are aware of low-cost options for spay/neuter, and to offer assistance for spaying/neutering outdoor cats.  To volunteer with the campaign, email

Then join us for Feline Rescue's Fabulous Feral Cat House Challenge and Food Drive on October 27th from 1-3.

When the weather turns cold, outdoor cats need shelter to survive.  Colorful, creative, technologically advanced, or simply super functional—we want to see what you can come up with to help keep outdoor kitties safe and warm this winter. 

Design and build your own shelter or customize one you purchase.  The challenge is yours. Then bring your shelter to our community cat open house at our adoption center on October 27th from 1-3. We will award in two categories—most creative and warmest for a MN winter. After the competition, keep your shelter for cats you are feeding or donate it to our outreach team to pass along to other cats in need.

Whether or not you enter the competition, feel free to stop by and see what others have created. And bring some food—canned or dry—for our community cat food drive.

If you'd like to build a shelter for feral cats you are feeding but don't know where to start, email us in advance at  We can give you a list of supplies to bring so we can build one together on October 27th.

If you are feeding or seeing outdoor cats, please help make sure they are spayed or neutered to prevent more homeless kittens. For advice or assistance on Trap-Neuter-Return or low-cost spay/neuter, call FR outreach volunteers at 651-642-5900 ext. 4 or email
