We are an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization in Tempe, AZ, providing TNR (trap/neuter/return), and life-long care to community cats. Every cat that ALF sterilizes, saves 9 more from facing danger and the likelihood of dying a sad and lonely death. We contribute to adoption achievements by keeping approximately 1,000 animals every year out of shelters, leaving space for adoption groups to save even more.
We at Animal Loving Friends object to the alleged practices of the Animal Liberation Front, and want to let you know that we are in no way associated with them, though the acronym (ALF) is the same.

|Breeding cycle stopped for:||645 cats|
|Births prevented in first year of sterility||5934|
|7-year cumulative prevention||135,450,000|
We are thrilled to report that you answered in a BIG way, and have made a WORLD of difference for your neighbors and for these community cats.
We'd like to encourage you to continue spreading the message. Even though a cat's breeding cycle will be more intense in the spring and summer than at any other time of year, cats have moved toward year round breeding, and their season doesn't actually end. Some do not come out of heat until they are either impregnated or spayed. The majority will return back into heat approximately every other week.

We believe that the best defense is offense - attacking the problem at its source - by altering free-roaming cats before they reproduce.
Volunteers are needed to set and monitor humane traps, transport cats to/from vet appointments, and provide food and water after the cats are released to their colonies. Knowing that you are saving lives and making a positive difference in your community is very rewarding.

Many Americans have lost their homes, and animals are coming into shelters 20, 30, 40 at a time. Rescue groups are suffering as well, since adoptions and donations are severely decreased. Some have closed their doors.
This all results in another large increase in the number of homeless, community cats left to survive on the streets. Sadly, many of those are not altered, and more kittens are being born into the suffering, with no place to go.
We hope that you'll consider adding a new furry member to your family, or contributing some financial relief to an animal rescue organization in your community.
We've provided some resources for Economic Relief, for those in need of assistance for their furry pals.
