WHO WE ARE:
PURR-ANGELS is a local grass roots, all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit
organization serving Siskiyou County, CA.
WHAT WE DO:
Spay/neuter/vaccinate and treat feral, homeless, abandoned and abused
Spay/neuter/vaccinate clinics for feral/homeless cats are held by
appointment each month from January through October. We do not
accept pet cats in our clinics: our primary goal is to control
the feral/homeless feline population of Siskiyou County-more than
4,200 cats have been through our clinics. Our services are free of
charge to the community but we do ask that you support the Clinics
by donating what you can to help offset the ever-rising costs of
medical/surgical supplies and vaccines.
Sustain healthy feline colonies through colony management programs.
PURR-ANGELS maintains regular feeding programs in various
colonies throughout the area. Shelters and feeders are placed
where volunteers provide food and water on a regular basis. We
also help community backyard feeders with food when we can. Food
donations are always needed and are appreciated.
Make humane traps available to caregivers for transporting cats to our
Clinics or to a veterinarian for treatment.
Provide assistance with placing colony cats and kittens suitable for
adoption into safe loving forever homes.
Educate and distribute literature to the public.
WHY WE CARE:
One of the best things about feeding the homeless cat colonies is the
progression of trust built up with them. At first they are hiding behind
bushes or dumpsters, then they start to know the sound of your car and they
begin coming out and waiting by the food station. After a while there will be
a special one who is braver than the rest, doesn’t run away when you come
up, and starts to talk to you in little hello mews. If you are lucky one day
you will get a chance to touch the special kitty and then she will let you
pet her while she eats. If you are very lucky the special kitty will seek out
your love. Some will do a little “dance of food” when you show up. Homeless
colony cat love is really special because you know you have made a
connection, and helped these special creatures not only survive but have a
happier, safer life.
The massive over-population of the domestic cat species exits because of
human irresponsibility: failure to spay/neuter pet cats and feline
abandonment. Furthering this problem is the absence of effective animal
control programs to discourage these acts and deal humanely with their
We are trying to remedy some of these human failures with our programs of
colony management, spaying/neutering/vaccinating, fostering and
We believe we are making a difference!!
