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 not employed,endorsed or compensated by any of the animal controls, and does not have the final authority on when or if an animal is euthanized. MCCA is not a rescue and does not have the ability nor the authority to shelter or adopt out cats to the public. We are but a steppingstone to medical care, rescue groups and programs that stop the endless cycle of reproducing feral and stray cats and give them productive lives as pets or working animals.
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.
MCCA is neither a rescue nor a shelter. We are a few animal lovers that volunteer our time and in a lot of cases, money to help save animals. None of the cats or kittens shown on this page are owned by any of the members of Midwest Community Cat Alliance, nor are they part of a Midwest Community Cat Alliance foster program. We do not have any form of a foster program since we are not a shelter or a rescue – although we do look for and arrange fostering on behalf of the rescues that pull animals from pounds for their adoption programs. Sometimes animal controls will also work with official pound fosters. We do not provide any services for owned cats. Our assistance to stray cats includes providing emergency vetting assistance when possible, with the cats going on to licensed rescue as soon as possible. MCCA depends solely on volunteers, fundraisers, and donations to get emergency and standard care for sick or injured cats, necessary immediate flea and deworming treatments and everything from paper towels to transport carriers.
