The mission of Town Cats is to enrich the lives of free-roaming, feral, or abandoned cats in the Ocean City and surrounding communities by limiting the population growth and providing medical care through Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR), and affordable adoption services.
Town Cats was organized in 1998 in order to address the feral cat population of Ocean City, Maryland. When they went home in the fall, many summer visitors would leave behind the cats they had been feeding all summer to face the winter without food or shelter. Those that survived would inevitably breed in the spring, producing litters of feral kittens that would eventually produce more unwanted kittens. Something had to be done to stop the litters and so Town Cats was born to spay/neuter/vaccinate the feral cats of Ocean City.
