Colony Cats (& dogs) Animal rescue in Columbus, OH

Colony Cats is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose primary mission is to address cat overpopulation in central Ohio through public awareness and spay/neuter efforts. Since 2002, our organization has facilitated spay or neuter of over 6,324 animals.

Specialized help for feral, stray and abandoned cats is a core element of our programs. We assist compassionate caregivers who are feeding and watching over homeless cats by providing TNR (trap-neuter-return) and other support services including food, shelter, vaccines and additional vet care for injuries/illness, as well as educational resources.
We also have a network of foster homes for friendly, adoptable cats and kittens - as well as dogs and puppies that we encounter while assisting cats - that have been rescued.
