Taking Care of Phoenix's Homeless Cat Population  


Cat overpopulation is a serious concern. Only 2% community (feral and stray) cats have been spayed or neutered. These cats produce around 80% of the kittens born in our neighborhoods and cities each year.

We are able to reduce the number of kittens born each year through our Spay/Neuter/Feed/Adopt Program. Our goal over the next year is to spay and neuter at least 600 homeless cats, which will prevent around 2,500 new kittens from being born onto the streets of Phoenix.

Most feral cats do not subsist on their own, like wildlife, but depend on people to survive. Food is in many ways their strongest connection to us and through feeding, a caretaker can maintain the cats' health and better manage the colony.  Part of our mission is to supply caregivers with adequate food and supplies to help care for their colonies and any new colonies that become part of our program.

How donations are used at Cat Mama's Sanctuary



Our goal each month is to spay and neuter homeless cats in our communities so we can help balance out the population and reduce the reproduction of kittens that are born to the streets each year.


Most caregivers that feed and care for homeless cats do so from their own wallet. We offer food/supply assistance to caregivers who are fostering and feeding and may need a little extra support.



Many homeless cats are found with serious injuries and in bad health. Our Emergency Medical Fund offers financial assistance to caregivers who find injured, homeless cats that need medical treatment.


Many homeless cats are completely lovable and would much rather live in a home with a family who loves them. We use social media to promote these adoptable cats to cat lovers in our communities to help them find the families they are looking for.


Cat Mama's Sanctuary is home to 40 cats that were once homeless, in need of sanctuary. A percentage of monthly donations are used to help care for our residents by providing food, supplies, medical treatment, sanctuary care and maintenance.

THANK YOU for Supporting Cat Mama's Sanctuary

Every donation helps spay & neuter homeless cats, provide emergency medical care and food/supplies. We work with local communities and volunteers and rescues to care for as many cats as we can. We couldn't do it without you!




Many homeless cats are not given the luxury of having humans love and care for them and take them to the doctor when they are feeling unwell. Part of our mission is working with community cat caregivers and providing funds for emergency medical care to those who need it the most. Because caregivers are volunteers, many pay for all expenses on their own. We help soften that burden where and when we can.

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the humane approach to addressing community cat populations. TNR improves the lives of cats, addresses community concerns, reduces complaints about cats, and stops the breeding cycle. We humanely trap community cats, bring them to a veterinarian to be spayed or neutered, eartipped (the universal sign that a community cat has been neutered/spayed), and then returned to their outdoor home

Caregivers (trappers, feeders and fosters) play a crucial part in our mission. Without them, we wouldn't be able to help at the level we can. We are always looking for more volunteers for these roles.

If you are a current caregiver, or interested in becoming a caregiver, please register below. When we can help with medical expenses and food, registered caregivers will always have first priority. 

TNR ( Trap, Neuter, Return)


Our TNR Program traps outdoor, free roaming cats in local neighborhoods and cities, gets them sterilized and ear tipped on their left ear for identification, then returns the cats to their territory.

If you are interested in helping Cat Mama's Sanctuary spay and neuter Phoenix's homeless cat population, please consider donating to help cover the costs of the surgeries, or sign up to be a caregiver. Each surgery costs $45; any help would be much appreciated. We have a big mission, and it takes a community coming together to achieve big things that make life more pleasant for everyone. Much gratitude in advance for your kindness and willingness to help our cause.
