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.  

In loving memory of Louie.


Click on Marley's photo above to see the video, Story of the Miracle Cats at Shadow Cats.  No one knows how or why, but after years of living under the cloud of the Feline Leukemia Virus, they've managed to clear the deadly virus from their bodies.

 24 Hours of Giving!
Thursday, March 5, 2015 Starting at 6:00pm



The sanctuary cats don't really roar, and hardly ever bite, but they do yawn a lot...and when you catch a cat in mid-yawn they can take on all kinds of interesting looks.

We are so excited to announce that we are a Jackson Pick, just one of a few---and when you shop at his store, you can also make a donation to Shadow Cats. We'll receive 100% of any donation made on this site. 

CLICK HERE or go to the Gifts that Give More on his storefront.


Miracles for Polly

Most cats are lucky to have even one miracle in their lives...for Polly the miracles just seem to keep on coming!  MORE>>


Oh, those tongues!

Cats are such elegant, beautiful creatures....when you catch them with their tongue out, it somehow looks out of place.  But cats use their tongues a lot - and our cameras are always ready!  MORE>>

Read the story of a feral cat living in one of our colonies that stole our hearts over 10 years ago.

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

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.
