You Can Make A Difference and Save Lives

    Together, we can educate people about feral cats and the fact that they don't belong in pounds and shelters, and spread the word that TNR is the humane approach for them. 

    Join our movement to protect Cats.

Spay & Neuter

In partnership with Frankies Friends, we hold 6 Low cost spay/neuter clinics per year.  Contact us for details or check out the Event Page 

Trap Neuter Release

We help control the population of feral and stray cats in the area utilizing a Trap, Neuter, Release program. Combining our efforts with Volunteer TNR cat experts, we catch local strays, spay or neuter and vaccinate.  Then release these cats to safe areas or make available for adoption. 

Our Goals

To end euthanasia as a means of population control. To provide low cost services to reduce the numbers of unwanted litters. To unite animal welfare advocates in our community for even more impact for the animals.

Our Mission

To make a positive impact in the lives of animals in our community. To provide resources to community animal caretakers. To ensure resources are accessible to individuals wanting to help animals.

Our History

Initially, the Foundation was established to operate the Hancock County Animal Shelter where a humane model was implemented, reserving euthanasia only to end suffering or where rehabilitation was not an option, instead of as a means of population control. In 2016, when the operational contract for the Foundation was not renewed by the County Commission, the Foundation saw animal welfare needs that were not being met and reorganized to expand its outreach efforts within our community. We now work to connect animal welfare advocates at ground level to provide low-cost spay/neuter clinics, TNR programs, emergency medical bill assistance, weekly adoption events, social media connections and outreach, as well as much needed community education.

About Us

The Foundation has been saving animals in Hancock County for over 25 years. In recent years, 25 low cost spay and neuter clinics have been held, resulting in over 1,000 cats being altered, thus preventing tens of thousands of cats filling local shelters and potentially being euthanized. Additionally, the Foundation has completely vetted and housed over 250 cats, with many being placed in forever homes through adoption events. The Foundation also has provided veterinary services to dogs in need, provided the community with a dog food bank, as well as providing appropriate housing for dogs in need.
