Rehoming Assistance for Strays (RAP)

We’re here to help!

Rehome a friendly stray cat or litter of kittens by utilizing our Rehoming Assistance Program (RAP). In an effort to help every cat get a home (realizing that animal rescue organizations can’t take every single homeless cat in), Carol’s Ferals is utilizing our successful years of experience to give YOU the resources to help homeless cats in your neighborhoods and workplaces.

We can’t adopt our way out of feline overpopulation. Only through aggressive Trap Neuter Return (TNR) programs and other spay/neuter efforts will we see the end to homeless cats. We have been offering TNR services for over six years and have fixed over 6,000 stray and feral cats in the West Michigan area. This program has launched due to the need to provide another layer of assistance beyond TNR. We are a solution based organization that strives to make TNR a household word and we will assist anyone who wants to help a cat in need.

For community cat caregivers or anyone who finds a stray and does not want to take it to a shelter where it may be euthanized, Carol’s Ferals is committed to giving you the support to rehome any cat in need.

Our Rehoming Assistance Program Will:

  • Provide spay/neuter services free or at a discount when possible and funding is in place.
  • Provide necessary vaccinations and testing for feline leukemia and FIV at a minimal cost.
  • Provide free treatment for fleas, earmites and common parasites.
  • Support the caregiver with the means to find homes for the cats themselves via Petfinder.
  • Offer suggestions for flier making and ingenious ways to utilize online sources and social media to ensure a successful rehoming
  • Offer online resources for adoption applications and contracts.
  • Educate caregiver about our No More Free Kittens campaign and detail how to find responsible homes without simply “giving the cat away” to anyone who will take it.

This program is not intended to help rehome owned cats. RAP is designed to assist caregivers  in rehoming found cats and kittens you would like to help.

If you have a feral (wild) cat or a friendly cat you wish to return outside, we will assist you with TNR services.

To enter the program, please fill out this needs assessment form. Be sure to state that you would like help rehoming the cat(s) through RAP.
