Madison County for spaying and neutering of stray and feral cats, some parts of Onondaga and Oneida. Adopt out to all locations, call for more information on spaying and neutering.

About Our Rescue Group:

Operation Wildcats was created to help feral cats - "wild cats" - as many people call them. The cats you see fleeing from you in the opposite direction. The kittens you try to catch but who end up scurrying after their moms in terror because they don't understand that you're trying to help them. This is the life of a feral cat: distrust, terror, and ultimate survival.

What we do as an organization is trap these cats, test them to make sure they don't have diseases that can be spread to other cats, such as Felv (Feline Leukemia) and FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus). Then we spay and neuter them so they can't bring more kittens into this world. And, we give them the vaccinations they need to protect them from other wildlife they may come into contact with.

After that, we release them back into their established colonies, and in the process, hope that as they pass from old age, other cats won't try to join the established colony. This is because the males we neuter will protect their colonies and they won't allow other unaltered males to join them. Thus, the colonies eventually disappear forever.

Of course, not all the cats we help are feral; some are simply scared and when we get to know them, we realize we can't re-release them into a society that doesn't always understand the life of a feral cat. So, we often have cats and kittens up for adoption. And, we try to find them homes as best we can.

All in all, this is what we're here for: to help feral cats survive and be safe and disease free, and to help cats who aren't feral to find homes.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a cat or kitten versus getting cats for sale or kittens for sale from a cat breeder? When someone is breeding kittens, they are creating new cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of cat or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a cat for sale from a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a cat or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
