WHAT WE DO

MISSION STATEMENT

As a humane solution to the ever growing stray cat problem, Manawatu Alley Cat Trust aims to stop the continuing breeding and suffering amongst urban populations of both abandoned cats and unsocialised offspring born on our streets/alleyways/parks.



MANAWATU ALLEY CAT TRUST is a small, non-profit organisation that cares for stray and feral cats in the streets, alleyways and parks of Palmerston North city, whilst actively working to humanely reduce their exploding population.

Manawatu Alley Cat Trust relies on the kind donations of concerned and generous people to allow us to carry out this work.

Specifically the Manawatu Alley Cat Trust:

  1. Traps stray and homeless cats for desexing/vet check, and if a home can’t be found, they are returned to their territory, where they are supported by people whom are feeding and caring for them.  This method is known as TRAP-NEUTER-RETURN (TNR).
  2. Rescues and finds good responsible homes for the kittens of stray mums.  We are not an animal shelter for cats, instead we rely on committed volunteers that foster and socialise the kittens (and cats when possible) ready for rehoming.
  3. Humanely euthanises sick, old and injured cats where the local SPCA are unable to provide care and support.
  4. Rehomes adult cats that have been abandoned by their owners, a particular issue in student streets.
  5. Educates those contributing to the problem, as well as potential volunteers and doners.
