Our Mission Statement

To give feral, stray and abandoned cats a better quality of life through the 
'TNVR' program (Trap, Neuter/Spay, Vaccinate, Return with care).

Many counties have adopted this procedure but we are the only organization in 
Ontario County, New York, at this time that deals with feral, stray and abandoned cats.

We have been in existence since February 2009.  We are always looking for volunteers.  
If you are interested in help with our fundraisers, transporting cats, 
working at our clinics or any other volunteer opportunity, please contact us at:

Important Warning

The Colony Caregivers would like to remind the public that feral cats are wild animals and should never be underestimated.  Use extreme caution when handling feral cats! Any fees, injuries, and/or damages that occur as a result of interaction with feral/domestic cats are the responsibility of the individual(s) handling the cat(s). 
The Colony Caregivers and its representatives are in no way liable.
From February 2009 through December 2014 we have spayed/neutered over 2386 feral, stray and abandoned cats.  Each month we continue to secure approximately 50 spots at clinics, at a reduced price not available to the general public. We are a very small group, please consider volunteering and/or consider making a donation. 
We are now a 501c3 which means your donation is fully tax deductible.

UPDATE: Lehigh Project September 2014

COMPLETED 11/28/2014​

All cats from the Lehigh Project have been removed from the site. They were all neutered and given medical care. They have been adopted out or are currently in foster care.  TCC is thankful for the management for financially supporting us in this effort and the site is being monitored for any stays.
