Helping Hawaii's homeless felines since 1999
If you know the feeder's name or area where you would like the cats fed, please let us know. There is a message box on the PayPal donate page. We will gladly distribute the funds for you. All of your donations are tax deductible. Meow Mahalo!!
Before the COVID-19 crisis, we were having monthly cat clinics at the Old Airport in Kona and in oceanview. We are still having some small clinics. Contact Cindy for more info:
DID YOU KNOW? The feral (wild) cats and abandoned pet cats are fed entirely by volunteers? Many of you may not be aware that there are people who go out every evening to take care of the thousands of homeless cats on the Big Island of Hawaii. They not only do they volunteer their time, but they buy all of the food out of their own pockets. They also carry gallons of water, since there are NO natural sources of drinkable water here, which is as essential to the cat's welfare as the food. The Kona side of the island has no lakes, no rivers, no streams, no ponds, nothing.
Some of the volunteers spend hours everyday doing this and go through 25 to 50 pounds of dry cat food every night! Their unselfish giving saves these cats from starvation and dehydration and provides a healthy diet. Feeding the cats at the same location every day also makes it easier to trap the cats for spaying and neutering. AdvoCATS helps to spay and neuter these animals, but the feeders use their own money and time for the additional care.
Any help is appreciated, as it's really is a labor of love, with great returns. If you or someone you know would like to donate food, volunteer as a feeder or trapper please contact us. We are desperate for cat loving feeders. You could give someone a night off or take over a night. The cats will thank you! There are colonies all over Big Island. Chances are there is a colony near you! Even if you are just visiting, think about donating some time or food while you are here. What a nice way to give back to this beautiful island.
