Let's Spay Texarkana, USA!

There are thousands of free roaming cats In the Texarkana, TX & AR area that are rapidly reproducing.  Free roaming cats are beneficial to our communities as they help control the rodent population, hence holding down disease that rodents spread.  However, if we don’t get these colonies stable, we will soon be overrun with sick and under nourished cats. 

If you donate just a few dollars a month, you will be helping us spay, neuter & vaccinate these cats who do not deserve to be euthanized by animal control.  Feral cats are automatically euthanized upon capture.  Thousands across the land are killed daily.  Trap – Neuter – Return (TNR) is the Only Humane Method of population control.

Won’t You Please, Help Save These Cats?  Make your donation or monthly pledge, now,  no matter how small, it will be a great contribution to our communities & to the kitties.

Mission Statement

Stray Cat Alliance of Texarkana is dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals by: promoting the welfare and humane treatment of stray and feral cats; raising awareness and educating the public regarding free-roaming cats; promoting non-lethal methods of reducing and managing the feral-cat population through sterilization.

About Us

Stray Cat Alliance of Texarkana is a volunteer-based, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to reducing the feral and stray cat population by implementing trap, sterilize, vaccinate and return or relocate programs and to caring for and finding homes for homeless, adoptable cats and kittens. Our focus is on animal welfare, public education and the non-lethal reduction of cats in our shelters.

Our Vision

A community where every cat is sterilized, vaccinated and cared for

As of July 2016, S.C.A.T. accomplished the following.  With your help, we can do much more.

What Stray Cat Alliance of Texarkana Has Accomplished as of July 2016.  (More Recent Updates Coming Soon)

• 60 stray & feral cats TNRed for city of Texarkana, AR. with a grant from former Mayor Smith and 45 in Texarkana, TX, with a grant from the Texarkana Humane Society. Total of 105 city street cats that will no longer reproduce and will live healthier lives while helping to control the rodent population.

• In the last two years, since the new shelter director took over, SCAT has accepted all of the neonatal kittens taken in to the Texarkana Animal Shelter. This relieves the shelter from the necessity of hiring extra personnel to bottle feed these kittens. (Neonatal kittens must be bottle fed every 2 hours.) Approximately 43 neonatal kittens have been kept out of our shelter, so far.
 
• So far in 2016, SCAT has rescued, fostered and have found homes or finding homes for 72 cats & kittens. This figure grows by the week.

• SCAT volunteers have cared for a colony of cats that live just below the Lake Wright Pittman spillway for the last 3 years. With the exception of one old Tom Cat, they have all been spayed / neutered, rabies vaccinated, given individual winter shelters and are fed 7 days a week, year around. We have also helped several other feral colony care takers spay / neuter, vaccinate and care for their colonies. Food is always available from the SCAT food pantry, for these colonies. The total count of these, now managed colonies, is 39 cats. This number varies as cats disappear and others move in. Spaying & neutering continues year around, as funds allow. We also, provide the cats with their own insulated, winter shelters.

• SCAT has rescued many injured cats, brought to us by various sources. The worst case was an abused kitten in Ashdown. She was dumped from a car and was witnessed by a bystander. That witness called us and we went into action. I have photos of her the day she was rescued and of her since and to date. I now have her progress in a collage and is being made into a poster.

• To date, SCAT has resolved 3 separate hoarding situations, where No cats were euthanized or went to the shelter. And, in July 2016, SCAT worked in collaboration with the city’s animal shelter to accept all of the 11 cats, left behind when their owner suddenly passed away, and kept them from going into the shelter’s system. SCAT rehomed all of those cats.

• When unaltered male cats on the adoption floor at the local animal shelter were making the room smell so bad that no one could stand to enter to view the cats up for adoption, SCAT partnered with veterinarian, Dr. Beth Wheat and neutered all the male cats in the shelter’s cat adoption floor making it more accessible for potential adopters.
