About SCRATCH, Inc. - TN Chapter

Our name is our mission statement. SCRATCH -
S- Saving homeless
C- Cats by
R- Reducing numbers via
A- Alteration, Adoption and
T- TNR,
C- Connecting with cat advocates and
H- Helping cat caretakers.

We are a cat welfare organization that concentrates on helping feral cat colony caretakers manage their colonies through TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return). The outcome of managed colonies is fewer free roaming cats, healthier colonies and no new kittens. This will keep more cats out of shelters and result in less euthanasia. You can see how this is preferable to the trap and kill method that has been common in the past. During this process, we acquire friendly cats that have become homeless and found their way to the food source, and kittens that are young enough to socialize. These are the kitties that make up most of our adoptable population.

All of our adoptable kitties are completely vetted and are observed for personality and behavior. Our kittens are given constant human contact and interaction and most are completely socialized to people by 3 months. We will sometimes have a few slow learners and we keep working with them, but we will also offer them for adoption, so their new owner can complete the socializing process. The advantage to this is having a cat that is totally bonded to you. The disadvantage is that they are often shy around others for quite awhile.

Our adoption process requires an approved application before setting up a meeting with our kitties. You can access this application on our website www.scratchinc.org. Click on adoption application and fill out the application completely. Incomplete applications will not be processed.

Thank you,

The SCRATCH Team
