Midwest Community Cat Alliance is a group of volunteer animal advocates who network the animals that find themselves in government-run animal controls in Farmington, Park Hills, Desloge, Fredericktown, Ironton, Bonne Terre, Ste. Genevieve and their respective counties in rural Missouri in order to save them from being euthanized. The group is neither employed, nor affiliated with any of the animal controls and do not have the final authority on when or if an animal is euthanized though we do all we can to prevent it. MCCA is not a rescue or adoption agency and does not have bricks and mortar place of business with the ability to foster cats though we are able to arrange temporary foster until transportation can be arranged.  We are usually the first step to get animals medical help and to rescues to be adopted.

 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.
