Carols Cats Rescue and Adoption       

 

ABOUT CAROLS CATS

 

 

Who We Are

 

Carols Cats is a Hillsborough, NJ-based organization that evolved out of one woman's desire to improve conditions for feral cats .  An all-volunteer organization incorporated as a nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation in 2002, Carols Cats functions as a resource for the control and management of feral cat colonies by:

  •       employing trap-neuter-release ("TNR") to stabilize and manage feral cat colonies in our area,
  •       rescuing and socializing feral kittens and adopting them into responsible homes,
  •       providing advice and support to individuals with feral cat problems, and
  •       educating the public about cat overpopulation and the importance of spaying and neutering .

 

What We Do

 

Provide Assistance With Feral Cats

A large part of our efforts go to actively caring for local colonies of feral cats, as well as providing logistical support, guidance, and instruction to area residents who have feral cat problems in their neighborhoods.  Level of assistance is determined on a case-by-case basis; financial assistance can only be provided as our budget allows.  A minimum donation may be required to offset veterinary expenses.

 

Assistance ranges from providing on-going instruction and advice for implementation of a TNR (trap-neuter-release) program to arranging spay/neuter appointments and transporting cats to and from our veterinarian.  Carols Cats also lends humane traps; a deposit is required, and borrowers must sign an agreement specifying terms of lending.

    

Carols Cats does not provide trapping services and does not pick up trapped cats.

 

 

Find Homes for Adoptable Kittens

An offshoot of our work with feral cats is the rescue and placement of adoptable kittens born to stray or feral cats.  Kittens who are deemed adoptable are placed in Carols Cats foster homes, where they are socialized and where their temperaments can be assessed.  Prior to adoption, they are spayed/neutered and receive initial (age-appropriate) inoculations, as well as additional medical care if the condition of the animal so warrants. Our foster care system enables us to monitor each animal's health and advise potential adopters about a kitten's or cat's personality so that a happy match can be made between the animal and its new family.

 

Please note that our organization can accommodate only a limited number of kittens.

 

Carols Cats cannot accept the following:

  •   Pets whose owners can no longer keep them or no longer want them.
  •   Unwanted kittens born to pet cats.*
  •   Sick cats or kittens.  CAROLS CATS IS NOT EQUIPPED TO PROVIDE NONROUTINE MEDICAL CARE.  ANIMALS WHO ARE ILL SHOULD BE TAKEN DIRECTLY TO A VETERINARIAN.
