Pitter Patter Feline Rescue, Inc.
Pitter Patter Feline Rescue Inc. is an all-volunteer rescue organization serving lower Fairfield County CT. Our goal is to reduce the feral cat population and find loving homes for the abandoned and adoptable kittens. We rely 100% on donations, with every dollar going directly to the care and support of the cats.
Our volunteers have a great amount of passion and dedication to the cats we rescue. Our mission for feral cats is the humane approach of Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). Feral cats are spay/neutered, vaccinated and ear tipped. This benefits the cats and the community. Kittens are spay/neutered, vaccinated, tested for feline disease and provided any medical attention necessary. They are raised in loving volunteer foster homes until ready for adoption thru www.Petfinder.com./sheltrs/CT393.html
We are a 501(c)(3) not for profit and all donations are tax deductible
Homeless Cats are a Sad and Serious Problem
Everyone wants an adorable kitten. However, as anyone who has ever had a pet knows, there is a substantial time and monetary commitment involved to properly care for a pet. Kittens are full of energy and can be a handful. They grow quickly from cute, cuddly kittens to cats within a few months. Many people are not prepared for this and sadly, drop their pets off at shelters, or worse, put them out on the streets. Besides the suffering this causes, it also leads to overpopulation, with even young kittens having 3 litters a year, with 4 to 6 kittens per litter. Homeless cats become colonies, trying to survive, searching for food and freezing in the harsh New England winters. They can develop diseases and infections or become prey to coyotes and hawks.
Our goal is to reduce the feral cat population by spaying and neutering, while at the same time educating the public. And perhaps most importantly, we seek to find warm, loving homes for the thousands of kittens who, otherwise, would remain as stray or feral cats subjected to this harsh reality.
