Sylvia Renee Lyss, founder of F.L.O.C.K., and her volunteers go out on a regular basis, usually at night, to the casino back alleys and into the less affluent neighborhoods of Las Vegas to maintain "Feeding Stations" with water and food for a multitude of stray and wild cats. The purpose is to humanely trap and give the cats immediate vet care, neutering, and vaccinations. The cats are either adopted out or taken to the F.L.O.C.K. sanctuary to live out their lives in comfort for as long as they are with us.
Sylvia Renee Lyss has devoted her life to helping stray and unwanted cats and kittens. She has been actively doing this work for over the last 30 years in Las Vegas.
F.L.O.C.K. has a charter to care for approximately 150 cats at our Sanctuary, and we try to take care of about 600 more cats at the various "feeding stations" near the Strip area, downtown Las Vegas, and even Pahrump and other outlying areas. F.L.O.C.K. and all local shelters in Las Vegas are overwhelmed with unwanted pets. Best estimates indicate that there are thousands of homeless cats in the Las Vegas area, all as a result of human ignorance and cruelty. Too many people don't care enough to have their pets spayed or neutered, or they consider pets as a nuisance or as disposable "toys."
F.L.O.C.K.'s mission is to save cats and kittens who are abandoned, unwanted, neglected, or lost and who would otherwise die of starvation, thirst, disease or injury. All the F.L.O.C.K. volunteers love cats and kittens regardless of whether they are cute, old, sick, cuddly, or crippled. Most of the cats and kittens in our care are healthy, and with F.L.O.C.K., they live in a secure and loving environment with future hopes of being placed in adoptive homes. However, those cats and kittens who are not so lucky, who suffer from various diseases such as feline leukemia, feline AIDS, upper respiratory infections, etc., can still live a full and happy life at the F.L.O.C.K. sanctuary where they receive the necessary personal and medical attention.
The main purpose of trapping stray and feral cats is to neuter/spay and vaccinate, with a possible release into a safe wild environment. Where safe release is not possible, the cats are either adopted out or taken to the F.L.O.C.K. Sanctuary, where they receive the necessary personal and medical attention.
