Cat Around Town is a rescue group promoting a cooperative effort to reduce the free roaming cat population in our community through adoption, education, and TNR.
How you can get involved....
Like us on FaceBook: Cat Around Town Project or https://www.facebook.com/kershawcats.
Cat Around Town needs volunteers to work with the hundreds of abandoned, or lost cats roaming the roads, streets and vacant lands of Kershaw County. Cat Around Town uses a trap-neuter-release program to try and help control the feline population. Volunteers can assist in a variety of ways; working with educating the public, colony caretakers, trapping cats, working at our adoption events, become a foster, food donations, or on fund raising committees. Anyone interested in volunteering please message us on Facebook or contact us by email: Cat.around.town.project@gmail.com

         
TNVR

TNR, or trap-neuter-vet-release is the humane practice of trapping community cats who cannot be domesticated and brought inside as pets, spaying or neutering them and returning them to their original colony. Volunteers are needed to trap and transport colony cats to be spayed/neutered facilities as well as monitor them after surgery and transport them back to their original colonies. 

     
Education

Our goal is to educate the public on the benefits associated with a successful TNR program.  Many people are unaware of the benefits involved in TNR as well as spay/neuter of personal pets which results in a larger number of pets than need to be contained.  Our goal is to educate the public on the the benefis of a successful TNR porgram and enlist help and support to ensure that reality.   

  Colony
Caretakers

We manage many areas which are commonly known as community cat colonies.  We care for them by providing fresh food and water daily as well as watching for any sign of illness or injury. Any injured cat is trapped and treated, while all kittens and adoptable cats are removed and taken into foster homes for socialization and adoption.  The end goal is to remove all adoptable members and provide TNR to anyone who remains.

   Adoption
Events

We do Petsmart adoption event days every other Saturday in Columbia on Two Notch Road. You can help promote our available kitties.  From greeting customers to talking with prospective adopters.  We want our community to know who we are and what we strive to accomplish. This is an easy and rewarding way to get involved and help a cat find their furever home! 

   S ocial
Media

Spread the word...tell your friends, coworkers and fellow animal lovers all about us!  Invite them to like us on Facebook , follow us on Pinterest , Instagram & Twitter and visit our website.  The bigger our reach, the greater our impact!  Together we can help make Kershaw County a No Kill County!

            
Foster

​We depend on foster homes to help stray cats from the community, colonies and shelters get a second chance at finding a home - a chance they may not have received otherwise.  Many of the cats who need foster homes require extra care and attention.  When placed in a loving foster home, every cat receives the individual attention needed to help them find their furrever family.

       
Donate

Invest in an organization that stives to ensure that no cat is forgotten.  We are always looking for new ways to raise awareness and are in need of support from food, litter and time to monetary donations to help cover medical cost; no amount is too small.  Interested in the future?  Interested in sponsoring a colony or foster pet? Contact us for more information.  Together we can save lives.
