Cats 1st is dedicated to the humane care and management of feral and abandoned cats.  Our members have extensive knowledge and deep compassion for these felines.

Organized for charitable and educational purposes, Cats 1st educates the public about feral and abandoned cats; humanely traps, neuters and medically clears feral cats and abandoned domestic cats; humanely resolves issues arising between property owners and unwanted cats; and educates the public about the value of spaying and neutering cats.
