Welcome to the Venice Cat Coalition.

We are an all-volunteer organization dedicated to helping feral and free-roaming cats in our community.  Our mission is to:

  • conduct and promote cat spay-neuters with the goal of ending euthanasia of cats in our local shelters
  • find homes for adoptable cats in our community and protect feral cats in their habitats.

What is a feral cat?

Feral cats are domestic cats that are not socialized to human contact. They are the primary result of pet abandonment as well as owners failing to spay and neuter their own personal pets, allowing them to breed uncontrolled.  In response to this problem, the Venice Cat Coalition offers resources of spay/neuter services and education to the community.

Studies have proven that trap-neuter-return (TNR) is the single-most successful method of stabilizing and maintaining healthy feral cat colonies with the least possible cost to local governments and residents. TNR provides a much higher quality of life for cats. Cats can average three litters per year and kittens as young as five months old can reproduce. Bringing in one cat to be sterilized not only improves the quality of life for that animal, it also saves the lives of countless unwanted kittens.

The Venice Cat coalition is a non-profit 501(c)(3) animal rescue organization based in Venice, Florida

Thank you ASPCA for helping Sarasota and Charlotte cats!

In 2013, ASPCA awarded the Venice Cat Coalition a $5,000 grant for pediatric kitten surgeries. These funds were used to spay and neuter 200 small kittens at a discounted rate at the Ashton Animal Clinic in Sarasota, FL. The surgeries were achieved in 14 weeks. The VCC is currently raising funds to fix another 200 or more tiny kittens this year, assuring that they can be adopted into homes at a young age without the risk of pregnancy and more kitten births.

In 2012, ASPCA has awarded us two grants, a $4,000 award for cat vaccines and a $3,000 award to purchase TNR cat traps for our Charlotte County initiative.  We are extremly grateful to this national organization for helping us to get humane population control for cats started in our area.  ASPCA is the first organization to step up to this challange with sizeable grant funding for Charlotte.
