About Us

Cambridge Homeless Cat Rescue

We were founded by dedicated, cat loving people.  With many years of experience with volunteering with other rescues we have come together with a great and vast range of experiences.  From cat trapping and cat care, to fostering and bottle feeding babies, to adoption experience and even fund raising and online marketing skills.

 

We recognized a need right in the Cambridge area for trapping and TNR for the vast number of feral cats living on the streets to help reduce and eventually remove them from existence, like what has been done with stray dogs.

 

We also recognize that these cats also are comprised of pet cats that have somehow ended up living on the street from either escaping or being dumped outside.  These cats, that are rescued and social will enter our foster home program and an attempt to find the original owner will be made, if none is found they will become a part of our adoption program.

 

Our long term goal is to become a valuable resource for not just our community but other communities in need of help on how to do what we do, how to trap, how to rescue, how to manage foster homes and adoptions and more.
