Neighborhood Cat Ambassador Program

Neighborhood Cat Ambassador Program

We believe our community should have direct opportunities to lead and collaborate on solutions to pet care and increase accessibility to care for pets and families facing systemic and acute hardships. The Neighborhood Ambassador Program is a network of local individuals who are passionate about animal welfare and who seek to assist others who are experiencing hardship in their communities. Right now, this program is focused on helping cats in our communities with the goal of humanely reducing outdoor cat populations, but we’ll be expanding our focus areas in the future.
