A Chance For You To Give Back - Round Rock's Shadow Cats

Welcome to Shadow Cats!

Shadow Cats is a rescue dedicated to the care of our current resident population of ill, immune compromised, injured and senior cats. We are not a shelter and do not accept animals for surrender or adoption. We promote Trap, Neuter and Return (TNR) as the most humane and effective means to control the community cat population. We provide information and resources to spay or neuter community cats. We do not trap cats for you, but we provide you with the resource information to help solve cat issues. We recommend networking with family members, church members, neighborhood associations, no kill shelters, rescue organizations whose mission is adoption in order to place social cats or kittens. Please go to our Resource page to find specific information that may help your particular situation.  

Another FUN and SUCCESSFUL Event!

Shadow Cats represented cat lovers/advocates in a dogcentric event on September 13, 2014 at the annual Strut Your Mutt hosted by Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. As you can see from these fun facts, Shadow Cats has proven once again that CATS RULE!

Keeping Clean

All cats are beautiful, of course...but it does seem sometimes like the sanctuary cats are particularly gorgeous and handsome. After sleeping and eating, grooming is probably the next biggest activity in their daily routines.  MORE>>

We try hard to do the right thing for every cat who comes through our doors.  Now that some of our residents are in their teens and have been with us for many years, doing the right thing for them can mean dealing with a wide range of issues.  MORE>>




Shadow Cats started in the mid-nineties with an idea and a passion that has evolved over the years to an entire organization supported by a network of caring friends, volunteers and supporters across the country and beyond, doing wonderful work for the most at-risk cats in our communities. MORE

Sponsor-a-Cat Program

Do What's Right was made in memory of the all the animals lost through a pseudo rescue near Dallas, Texas. Peace and tranquility to the 1000+ Austin and Round Rock cats and dogs still unaccounted for...

The focus of the video is to encourage everyone who may have no other alternative but to give up their animals to thoroughly check out organizations or rescue groups before doing so.
