    CatVando is an all-volunteer 501c3, we work with individuals, communities and municipalities to help curb the number of cats born in the streets(and ultimately euthanized in shelters) while helping care for cats and their individual needs. We work toward harmony between the cats and their caretakers and the community.  When possible and necessary, we remove kittens and abandoned pets to find loving, forever homes.

    Thank you
