Tabby’s Place can only do what we do because of generous people like you. We are a 501(c)3 public charity, receiving no funding from the government, and over 90% of our income comes from individuals.
We are grateful that compassionate people like you choose to support our cats. We truly couldn’t do it without you.
We have approximately 115 residents at any given time.
No. But, we would be happy to lend you a humane trap, teach you how to use it, and connect you with low-cost spay/neuter resources. Please contact Danielle Rice at firstname.lastname@example.org for trap rental assistance.
TNR stands for “Trap-Neuter-Return,” widely accepted as the most humane and effective method of caring for and controlling community cat populations.
TNR involves capturing; spaying/neutering; and returning community cats to their outdoor homes, where they are fed and monitored by conscientious caregivers. This provides community cats with a safer return to the outdoor life they love, while preventing their proliferation.
Since 2011, Tabby’s Place has conducted TNR locally as our capacity allows. In addition to conducting the basics described above, Tabby’s Place provides medical care for each cat we trap, including dental and wound care. In this way, we’re saving community cats from years of lonely pain.
We lovingly evaluate each cat we trap, and keep kittens, friendly cats, or fragile cats at Tabby’s Place rather than returning them outdoors.
Currently, Tabby’s Place’s TNR work is limited to our six surrounding townships (East Amwell, West Amwell, Delaware, Raritan, Lambertville and Flemington). If you need assitance with community cats in one of these areas, please contact Danielle Rice at email@example.com to get on our waiting list for TNR assistance.
The Tabby’s Place Guardian Angel Program offers cat owners a way to ensure the well-being of their cats in the event that they can no longer care for them.
See this entry for an explanation of how we choose cats to accept.
Although we accept cats from anywhere in the world, the overwhelming majority come from the surrounding area. You can see details below.
Unfortunately, there is no shortage of cats in need of a safe haven.
We prioritize helping cats who are truly alone in the world, with no one advocating for them. Listed in decreasing priority, our cats come from:
See here for the areas from which we have accepted cats.
This means that, unfortunately, we generally cannot take cats from the public — but we can help connect you with resources for placing a cat.
Sadly, there are many more cats in need than we can help directly, so the answer is almost certainly “no.” But, we can point you in the right direction through our Help Form.
No. As an indoor sanctuary, Tabby’s Place is not the right environment for feral cats. They are happiest and flourish best in monitored, outdoor colonies — which is why we’re committed to TNR.
Yes…but since FIV+ cats are adopted out less frequently than others, space in our FIV+ Suite opens up only sporadically. We accept FIV+ cats on a first-come, first-serve basis as space becomes available. Click here for a list of sanctuaries accepting FIV+ cats.
No. Tabby’s Place does not provide boarding services. We’d recommend asking your veterinarian, or searching online, for a qualified local boarding facility.
