The AWS/Cleo Fund assists caretakers of feral cats in York County.
Feral cats received little to no socialization as kittens and thus do not have the demeanor to be house cats. They live outdoors, frequently in colonies with other feral cats. Many rely on the kindness of human caretakers to provide regular access to fresh food and water. Feral cats may also seek shelter in outbuildings on your property.
We provide the following free services and items at no cost to the caretakers of feral cats:
- Spay/Neuter Surgery (includes health exam, rabies shot and ear tip)
- Trapping Guidance & Loaned Traps
- Cat Shelters*
- Cat Shelter Plans
- Feeding Stations
In the case of feral kittens, if young enough, a litter can be socialized in foster care, giving them the confidence and demeanor needed to become house cats. In these cases, kittens go up for adoption, rather than be returned to their mother’s colony. Call the AWS Adoption Center at (207) 985-3244 to learn more.
If you are feeding one or more feral cat, know the whereabouts of a colony, or would like to know more about trapping a feral cat so that it can be spayed/neutered, please call us at (207) 985-3244 ext. 127.
* We have a limited number of sturdy feral cat shelters available free of charge to caretakers of feral cats. To learn more about how to obtain one for the feral cats on your property, please contact us at (207) 985-3244 ext. 127.
