Founded in 1986, Animal Umbrella is a statewide, volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, spay/neuter, adoption and overall welfare of homeless cats and kittens in Massachusetts.

Since 1986 we have:

* Spayed/neutered several thousand cats.
* Adopted thousands of cats/kittens through our shelter & network of volunteers.
* Responded to thousands of rescue calls from concerned animal lovers.
* Educated the public on animal welfare issues such as:
1. Importance of spaying/neutering in controlling cat overpopulation
2. Overall cat care/owner responsibilities
3. Abandonment
4. Cruelty
5. Humane alternative placement solutions for animals considered unadoptable.
* Networked with other humane organizations and animal lovers to find homes for abandoned animals.
* Continued to work on the following programs:

1. Spay/neuter/release of street cats (when there is no space in our shelter and when they are cared for by an animal lover)
2. Low cost spay/neuter for responsible/concerned owners (for animal not adopted from Animal Umbrella since our cats are sterilized prior to adoption.)
3. Socialization of feral cats and kittens.
4. Placement in special homes of adoptable animals (e.g. handicap, old age, behavior, FIV or FLEV positive)

* Placed animals with special care needs in foster homes (due to injury, nursing age, illness, or lack of space at the shelter)
