About the CNY Cat Coalition

The CNY Cat Coalition was founded in 2002 and has become one of the area's leading animal welfare organizations. Our mission is to change the world for homeless and at-risk cats—four paws at a time. We are a 100% volunteer organization that depends on donations from people in the community who love animals. CNYCC is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization.

We help cats by

  • Raising spay/neuter awareness and offering low-cost spay/neuter services
  • Feeding, spaying and neutering, vaccinating, and providing shelters for homeless cats
  • Maintaining a network of foster homes that find loving forever homes for homeless cats

Our Goals

  • To promote the health and management of homeless cats and stabilize their population with feed/spay/neuter/vaccinate programs and to educate the general public as to the benefits of such programs
  • To maintain a powerful and well-organized network of foster homes and rescue organizations that seek responsible homes for cats in need of adoption
  • To raise spay and neuter awareness within the community and to offer convenient and economical spay/neuter options to facilitate participation by all pet owners
  • To promote and improve communication and synergy among local rescue organizations, animal welfare groups, veterinarians, concerned individuals, local businesses, and community members and leaders
  • To found a sanctuary where unadoptable cats can gracefully live out the course of their natural lives
  • To create an environment that establishes Central New York as a model community for its progressive and compassionate programs for cats
