advoCATS has been around since March 17, 1999 and as of July 2014, we have spayed and neutered 15,458  cats!!

  Donations are appreciated but we DO NOT CHARGE at our spay/neuter clinic for feral cats !! Spread the word, tell your friends and neighbors.

AdvoCATS Hawaii set a new record at our feral cat spay/neuter June 2014 clinic
-- 195 cats sterilized -- 87 males and 108 females!
All done by our veterinarian Dr. Celina Hatt.  She is Super Vet!!!!


advoCATS identifies feral cat colonies with the help and information provided by members and other concerned individuals and uses a Trap-Neuter-Return Program to control over-population as well as to maintain good health among the colonies. Once trapped, the cat is transported to a local veterinary hospital or a spay/neuter clinic event.  He/she is neutered, ear tipped (R-female/L-male), vaccinated against FVRCP, and treated with Revolution.  After recuperation from surgery, the cats are returned to their colonies where the advoCATS volunteer monitors their recovery. 


advoCATS will work very hard to find loving homes for abandoned feral kittens when the need arises and  encourage other caring and compassionate people to come forward and become involved in the care of feral feline colonies.

Donations of time, money and cat food and equipment are an integral part to the success of advoCATS and its mission.


Ways to Get Involved
Sponsor or become a feederVolunteers use their own money for food to feed many colonies of feral cats daily here on the big island.  Help a feeder. 

did you know?

‚ÄčEach day hundreds of feral kittens are born on the Hawaiian Islands. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all these animals.

Feral kittens are born into a harsh environment.   The Kona side of the island has no source of fresh water, no rivers, no streams. Many do not survive.

Innocent, healthy kittens do not deserve to suffer and die needlessly. They should never have been born, though it is no fault of their own.  Trap-Neuter-Return is the only answer to the endless tragedy of feline overpopulation and disease.
