At Forgotten Cats, our mission is to reduce the unwanted cat population without killing and to stop the suffering of the thousands of kittens born to abandoned, homeless cats.

We do this by working with colony caretakers to trap, sterilize, vaccinate, and return every cat within a colony. We provide the necessary medical treatment for sick or injured feral cats, stray cats, and kittens. We are working to find homes for adoptable cats and kittens. We also provide education about spay neuter, and we are assisting other cat rescue groups with trap, neuter, and return programs.

Check us out, and please consider lending a hand. With your help, we can make a difference!


To date our organization has sterilized more than 82,000 cats. This year alone we have sterilized over 8000 cats. Please consider donating to our active and effective organization. Or consider donating from the list of items that we desperately need.

Action Center

Forgotten Cats needs your help to keep our doors open to sterilize 10,000 cats and adopt out 900 cats a year. If you have it in your heart to allow Forgotten Cats to continue with its rescue work, check out our new Action Center to see how you can help.

Looking for a Few Cute Cats

Forgotten Cats is looking for a few cute cats, actually 100 cute cats, to use in our end of year fundraiser. Please submit a photo of your cute cat to cutecats@forgottencats.net. The first 100 pictures received will be used on our website. Please also include your cat's name and a brief description or anecdote. Remember the first 100 cute cats will become web-stars! Don't miss your chance to make your cat famous.

UPDATE: We currently have 71 cats. There's still time to get your cat into the picture!!!

Volunteer Opportunities

In order to provide care to the many, many animals that need our help, we need volunteers. There are many ways in which you can help our organization, from foster care to adoption center help to warehouse help to fundraising.

If you are interested in helping an organization that is actually making a difference in the lives of stray and feral cats, please find out more about volunteer opportunities.
