Our vision is to have a community where no kittens are born wild on the street, no cat  capable of living in a home is lacking one, and no feral cats are wanting for food, water,  and appropriate care and concern.

Help make this our biggest Big Give yet! Give to SAFCC March 15-22!
Last year, a call came to our SAFCC helpline. John, the manager at an apartment complex, said his complex had 20 cats on the property. Some of the cats were pregnant and one had mange, which he feared would spread to the other cats. He and apartment residents were desperate for help. 

We receive many calls from apartment managers with situations like this and know that the outcome for many community cats that live at apartments is not a good one.  As an all-volunteer group, our ability to help community cats depends on our volunteers and on those who support the work we do. This year, the Big Give 2018 is on March 22 and we are asking for your support in a big way! 

The Big Give is our largest fundraiser and this year our ambitious fundraising goal is $25,000! We hope to reach this goal by individual donations and by winning prize money. To help us reach our goal, you can help by donating the minimum of $10 and--most importantly--getting other people to donate the minimum too! Prize money is awarded to those organizations with the most unique donors, so the more people who donate, the greater our chances of winning prize money. Even better news, now you can donate before the big day. The Big Give 2018 will be open for donations a whole week before the big day, starting on March 15. Please visit and share our page, to get the word out.

Event Volunteers needed

Our event season is picking up and our need for volunteers to staff these events have never been greater. Community events offer us the opportunity to spread the word about the benefits of TNR and what our organization does, so our presence is very important!

Duties usually include setting up tables, handing out out literature, answering questions, and engaging with various members of the public. If you have attended our TNR class and would like to help, please email our volunteer coordinator, Soun-Ja HERE  
Donate your car and help SAFCC

Wondering what to do with your used car or truck? Donating your old vehicle to SAFCC is convenient, easy, and may qualify you for a tax deduction. And best of all, your donation of a used car or truck will support our community cat work!

All you need to do is to complete a simple online form or call 1-866-628-2277 and they will take care of the rest. They will pick up your vehicle, arrange to have your donation towed, and provide you with a tax-deductible receipt, all at no charge to you.

Thank you Leigh Young & Monica Alvarado for donating their 2007 Toyota Corolla under Vehicles for Charity. SAFCC received $1,180 and they received a tax deduction!

SpaySA 78209 grant

Thank you to SpaySA for funding 50 feral surgeries in the 78209 zip code! The surgeries must be done at the Animal Defense League and only apply to 78209 cats NOT from Alamo Heights. Trappers will need to show proof of residency. 

This is a great time to get ahead of those kitty litters!  Please visit our website HERE for information on TNR grants and specials. 
Trapping help needed at Haven for Hope

Andrew (pictured) reached out to SAFCC  last summer to help him with the cats he feeds behind Haven for Hope, where he lives. This is a homeless man doing what he can to help homeless cats. SAFCC volunteers now deliver food to him but unfortunately, the cats are still reproducing. It is a dangerous location and we have not been able to get trappers to trap there. It is too dangerous for women, so we are looking for a "few good men" to help get these cats fixed. Andrew can help - he just has no money and no car. If you are able to help, please email us at info@sanantonioferalcats.org. SAFCC will pay spay/neuter fees at one of our partner clinics. 
Select SAFCC as your charity and triple your impact!
