Cat-vocates was created to start funding additional support for adoption promotions and spay-neuter initiatives. It is currently being led by Overseers Lisa Finkel, Ann-Louise Hittle, Sharon Malt, and Bebe Wunderlich.
The MSPCA’s first promotion began in the summer of 2011, and the results since then have proven extraordinarily successful! We’re excited to continue our efforts through 2015 and beyond. Will you consider supporting these efforts with a gift to help us defray the costs of cat adoptions and spay-neuter initiatives?
Adult cats create one of the MSPCA’s great ongoing challenges. Every year, more adult cats find their way to us than any other type of animal. These fabulous felines arrive at our adoption centers from many sources: the numerous strays found in buildings and neighborhoods who are brought to us by kind strangers; cats rescued from dangerous and difficult circumstances (such as hoarding situations); and, finally and sadly, cats who can no longer be kept by their owners due to illness, economic problems, or other life challenges.
This statistic suggested the need to tackle the cat over-population issue from two angles: more adult-cat promotions AND subsidized spay/neuter programs.
Since the inception of Cat-vocates in 2011, we’ve made significant strides. Through strategic cat spay-neuter events and the introduction of Fee-Waived Cat Adoptathons, we have positively affected the intake rate of cats in our adoption centers as well as the adoption rate of adult cats.
We’re inspired by the exceptional progress made this past year. Just read the stories below of those who have adopted adult cats in the past year, and we know you’ll be inspired too.

Please join the Cat-vocates today. Your contribution will help fund these creative programs that reduce overpopulation and find homes for adult cats. Imagine a world where every healthy cat – who, by some chance, finds its way to our shelters – finds that “purr-fect match”. That’s the mission of the Cat-vocates.
Thank you for your support of animals!
