Community Cats

Saving Grace understands that Douglas County has a high number of outdoor cats living in both urban and rural areas. We are not alone! Many communities across the country are experiencing similar issues with outdoor cats due to a lack of affordable and accessible veterinary care. The key to solving this problem is affordable, accessible and targeted spay/neuter and vaccination. Unfortunately, Saving Grace is not able to offer assistance with outdoor cats until we are able to hire additional staff and purchase additional equipment, however we are working with the County to devise a plan to provide affordable and accessible veterinary services for community cats in the near future. 

If you have cats in your yard and do not want them there, there are a few steps you can take right away to help encourage them to move on. 

 

  • Cats are opportunistic and will take advantage of any available food or shelter

  • Block off any access to shelter such as areas underneath the house, deck or patio

  • Remove any access to food including open garbage cans

    Additional information, tips and tricks to keep cats out of your yard can be found at neighborhoodcats.org
