Who We Are
Midwest Community Cat Alliance, Inc.
St. Francois County, Missouri
The group networks via MCCA’s Advocats and Midwest Community Cat Alliance on Facebook, rescue websites, email, phone and personal contacts to place the animals with licensed rescue groups for first and foremost spay/neuter and vaccinations. The rescue groups that are able to take the pound cats will then continue caring for the cats until they are adopted and find their forever home.
As a non-profit community cat advocate our assistance is limited to stray cats for possible emergency vetting assistance, Trap Neuter Return and setting up working cat environments through Operation Better Mouse Trap. MCCA depends solely on volunteers, fundraisers, grants, subsidies and donations to get standard care for sick or injured cats, necessary immediate flea and de-worming treatments and everything from paper towels to transport carriers and cages.
Trap-Neuter-Return approach is the humane and effective approach for stray and feral cats. In practice for decades in the US after being proven in Europe, scientific studies show that Trap-Neuter-Return improves the lives of feral cats, improves their relationships with the people who live near them, and decreases the size of colonies over time. Trap-Neuter-Return is successfully practiced in hundreds of communities and in every landscape and setting. It is exactly what it sounds like: Cats are humanely trapped and taken to a veterinarian to be neutered and vaccinated. After recovery, the cats are returned to their home—their colony—outdoors with a responsible care taker that makes sure they have some sort of shelter, food and water. Kittens and cats that are friendly and socialized to people may be adopted into homes.
