Alley Cat Rescue is helping to solve the crisis and tragedy of unwanted and abandoned cats. Alley Cat Rescue (ACR) works to protect cats on several levels: locally through rescue, rehabilitation and adoption of cats and nationally through a network of Cat Action Teams. ACR is dedicated to the health, well-being and welfare of all cats: domestic, stray, abandoned and feral. ACR also assists the international animal community.

This will save millions of lives, and stop the killing in the nation's shelters. Six million healthy, unwanted animals are killed in shelters each and every year. ACR is striving to lower these numbers and to put an end to the suffering and unnecessary death of innocent animals. ACR also works to PREVENT feral colonies from forming. Spaying and neutering outdoor cats helps to stop new cats from joining and forming feral colonies.
We have many cats in need of good homes. Please visit the PETsMART located at 12020 Cherry Hill Rd. in Silver Spring, MD to meet our cats available for adoption or call (301)586-8262 to speak to a manager about our cats. You can also view them online at Petfinder or Pets911. Barn homes are also needed for feral cats; please check out our Programs for more information.
