MomaKat Rescue is a 501-C3 non-profit that focuses on finding permanent homes for abandoned and rescued kittens and cats. We take in a limited number of kittens and cats. We do our best to socialize these babies, make sure they are healthy and then find them good homes. All of our kittens and cats are rescues from Birmingham and surrounding area.
In addition to our primary focus on adoptions, we support local TNR projects as time permits. We do not provide trapping services any longer but we can help with planning advice and professional traps (as availability permits.)
…More about our mission and goals
- We rescue a limited number of kittens and cats and do our best to socialize these babies, make sure they are healthy and then find them good homes.
- We have a bank of traps to use to help you trap feral cats, have them fixed and returned to their environment to live long non-reproductive lives!
- We manage feral cat colonies and have programs to teach you how to manage a cat colony.
- We feed over 100 feral cats and kittens in a dozen+ colonies every day.
Note: As a policy we do not take in owner surrendered cats.
Nine+ years ago we mounted our first rescue operation quite by accident. On a hot July day we discovered a beautiful yellow tabby kitten hobbling through the parking lot of a local grocery store. The poor baby looked beaten down, hungry and ready to collapse at any minute. We tried to approach the kitten but unfortunately it scampered back into the holly bushes out of our reach. Not sure what to do we decided to purchase a can of cat food and returned to share it with our new friend.
To our surprise (and delight) several other kittens came out to enjoy the feast. Our hearts went out to these beautiful, sweet creatures and we knew we could not abandon them. Thus started our journey to becoming a rescue and placement organization for kittens and cats.
By trial and error we have educated ourselves on how to safely trap and rescue cats/kittens, how to feed and manage cat colonies and have developed a network of folks who help us place our kittens in good homes.
With the support of local vets we have been able to display and successfully place 100% of our kittens to date but the task gets more challenging every week.
Our group has grown over the years but we still desperately need volunteers to help us manage our existing and new feral cat colonies. If you can find it in your heart to help we could use your support. In most cases it will only take an hour or two of your time and the rewards are enormous.
