Alley Cat Rescue
Alley Cat Rescue is dedicated to the well-being and welfare of ALL cats: domestic, stray, abandoned,and feral.
ACR works locally & nationally. In the DC Metro/Maryland area ACR runs a hands-on rescue program for homeless, abandoned cats and finds them new homes. We also run a spay clinic to TNR feral cats.
ACR works nationally through our Cat Action Teams to help others help cats nationwide.
ACR is one of the world's pioneers in new, innovative ways to control feral cat colonies, using nonlethal, humane methods of control (TNR).
ACR has information on all aspects of Trap-Neuter-Return, including rabies control, and facts & myths on cats and wildlife predation.
Cats have been scapegoated and ACR is concerned about this as it encourages cruelty towards cats. It also deflects attention away from the real reason for wildlife depletion: the over-development and misuse of land.
