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. 

Special thanks to Turbo's Sponsor Mom, Wanda Bishop for raising $1,105 in honor of Turbo! Wanda challenged our Facebook friends to make a donation and write a haiku about Turbo. Wanda judged all the fabulous haikus that were entered and chose Jeanette Cacciola's entry. Congratulations Jeanette and thanks again Wanda!!

Jeanette's haiku:

Black and cream and blue
Piercing eyes that shine brightly
Love handsome Turbo!

Hosted by Best Friends Animal Society, Strut Your Mutt Austin 2016 was a stunning success for cats and dogs! Of course, the cats ruled! We started the walk at the head of the pack under blue skies with lots of friends and great dogs. It was a wonderful day to enjoy the activities and network with other rescue groups. During the awards ceremony, Shadow Cats placed first in fundraising efforts and received the $1000 grand prize. Shadow Cats volunteer, Jennifer Hayes, won the overall top Austin fundraiser award, raising over nine thousand dollars for the cats! Shadow Cats raised, because of YOU, over $50K!!

Even though the physical Walk is over, donations can be accepted at our page link until Oct 31st- and who knows we might be the GRAND- GRAND overall winner and receive an additional $10K so if you are inclined, you can still support us by visiting our official STRUT YOUR MUTT page.

A wonderful day and a wonderful way to support the animals!  Thank you Best Friends Animal Society, friends and supporters!



Shadow Cats began 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>>
