Mission Statement

"Naples Cat Alliance is a volunteer-based non-profit organization dedicated to creating a No-Kill Community through Collier County's official Volunteer Trap-Neuter-Return Program (TNR) designed to protect public health, reduce shelter euthanasia, increase cat adoptions and improve the health and quality of life of Collier cats and residents."

Vision Statement

"To create a Community supported by it's residents, government agencies and laws in which all owned, homeless and feral cats are protected and given the chance at a quality of life through access to affordable medical care, low-cost spay and neuter services, food, shelter and adoption opportunities. "

Program (TNR)

Trap-Neuter-Return, commonly referred to as "TNR," is the only method proven to be humane and effective at controlling feral cat population growth. Using this technique, all the feral cats in a colony are trapped, neutered and then returned to their territory where caretakers provide them with regular food and shelter. Young kittens who can still be socialized, as well as friendly adults, are placed in foster care and eventually adopted out to good homes.

Last year 340 cats were adopted from the Naples Cat Alliance no-kill shelter, along with and our Petsmart-partnership locations in Estero at Coconut Point and Naples at US41 East at 951. We have lots of great cats at all three locations. The cats with great stories get adopted instantly: Recently we rescued a dying kitten, who we found out later, swallowed a whole almond, causing a bowel obstruction. The kitty was later named Almond Joy.

In that same week, the Naples Cat Alliance rescued a kitten thrown from a moving car on 951.

Our shelter is filled with over 100 cats that would love to be adopted into your home. The benefit, at the time of adoption, of the free-roaming shelter is that you can see which cats come to you, which ones sit on your lap.

If you're unable to adopt, LIKE the Naples Cat Alliance page on Facebook and share the postings about cats looking for homes.

Keeping the shelter operating requires help from you. We do not receive any money from the County or State to fund our shelter and rescue.

Our biggest expense is VET BILLS. Whenever we take in a new cat or kitten, we have to take it to the vet for a checkup, and to test the kitty for FIV and feline leukemia. When one of the 100+ kittens in our care is sick, we have to take the kitty to the vet, and the Naples Cat Alliance is responsible for paying the medical bill.

How to help: Our primary vet for checkups, vaccinations, and spay and neuter is Harborside Animal Clinic. We always owe them money. We struggle to keep our balance below $6000. You can help by sending the Cat Alliance a check payable to Harborside Animal Clinic.

The other veterinarian that we use regularly, and where we also have an outstanding balance is Emergency Pet Hospital of Collier County (EHP). EPH is where we bring cats who need emergency treatment, such as Almond Joy. We also have an outstanding balance at EPH. By sending the Naples Cat Alliance a check payable to Emergency Pet Hospital of Collier County, you're helping us to be able to keep providing critical vet treatment to cats and kittens in need.

Our next biggest expense after medical is RENT. Our free-roaming, no-kill shelter houses more than 100 cats. We have a Give-Me-Shelter program designed to help pay the rent by having donors commit to sending the cat alliance $100 a month for rent. So far we have 11 donors in the Give-Me-Shelter program.

Those who cannot afford the $100 per month can sign up to contribute $5 per month. Montly Giving Recurring donations enable us to spend less time fundraising and more time saving lives of cats and kittens in Collier County.

Our next largest expense after medical and rent is food and litter. Feeding more than 100 cats at each feeding goes through a lot of Friskies cans, and Friskies dry food. For example:
Purina Cat Chow at Walmart

The cat litter we use is a compressed-pine product, sold by Tractor Supply as horse bedding. We use it because it does not create a fine dust like clay litters, and the pine works great on odor control. Link to the cat litter we use. We use three bags of pelletized pine for cat litter each day.
We are all volunteers at the Naples Cat Alliance. Even our president, Megan Sorbara, who works 12+ hours every day helping cats and keeping the shelter and rescue operating, is a volunteer and receives no salary. Every morning, it takes a team of volunteers to clean the shelter. We are looking for people who can commit to a specific day of the week and volunteer from 9am to 1pm to help clean. Volunteer applications are here.
