Meaningful Work. Humane Community

Finances are the biggest single thing that dictate how much care an animal gets or doesn't get. We have found pet guardians want to spay/neuter their pets but simply cannot afford the cost.

We are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this issue by referring applicants to low cost spay/neuter services within Monterey County.

Cat and Dog


Our mission is to protect and improve feral cats' lives through (TNR) Trap-Neuter-Return. In a TNR program, community cats are humanely trapped, then neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and eartipped before being returned to their outdoor homes.

Engaging with our community to develop and build a team of dedicated trappers/caregivers that focus on "their" neighborhood cats!
