About Our Charity
The Cat Action Team (CAT) is based in the province of Prince Edward Island. It is managed and operated by a dedicated team of volunteers.
CAT was incorporated in April 2001 with the primary objective of implementing a program of trapping, neutering and returning (TNR) feral, stray and barn cats in PEI. As of December 2015, close to 11,000 cats have participated in our TNR program.
After surgery the cats are returned to their caretakers who release the cats back to their colonies, where they are housed in existing buildings or in shelters built and maintained by CAT volunteers. Here the the cats receive food and when necessary, additional medical treatment.
