"SAVE LIVES, SPAY OR NEUTER YOUR CAT"
Operation Topcat was formed in 1995 by a few residents of Topsail Island North Carolina who were working as individuals to help stray and feral cats in the area. The group was incorporated in July 1996 and has 501 (c)(3) non-profit status from the IRS.
Our organization recommends and uses the "trap/neuter/return" (T/N/R strategy.) Homeless cats that are not tame are spayed or neutered, have their left ear "tipped" for easy identification as having been spayed or neutered and then are returned to their colony for continued care and feeding by their caretaker. Those cats or kittens that are tame are available for adoption. We currently have cats at PetSmart in Jacksonville, NC (Western Blvd.) and The Sound Cat Veterinary Hospital in Wilmington, NC.
All Topcats to be adopted are spayed/neutered, given age appropriate vaccinations, tested for Feline Leukemia, and micro chipped.
If you are feeding one or more stray or feral cats or kittens and need help, please contact us. You must continue to care for the colony. Together we can humanely help the cats and reduce the overpopulation of cats in our area.
Topcat's assistance is available to people who want to help the stray or feral cats in the Topsail, North Carolina area, including Sneads Ferry, Holly Ridge, Hampstead and the surrounding area in a humane and caring way. Topcat does not have a shelter, only a few foster homes. Help depends on available space at a foster home and how much money we currently have as we rely 100% on donations to do our work. Please contact us if you are interested in being a Topcat foster. We can not relocate feral cats as we do not maintain a feral colony. To get help with a feral colony you must continue to care for the colony.
We are working to help as many stray & feral cats through spay/neuter, adoption and education as we can. We rely 100% on donations and all monies go to help the stray and feral cats.
Topcat encourages all pet owners to spay or neuter their own pets, not just to reduce the over population, but also to reduce the pet’s possible exposure to diseases or injuries.
