Since 2007, Feral Friends of Millsboro (Milton, Delaware 19968) has been helping to control the feral cat population in Sussex County, Delaware. We do this in the humane way of Trap/Neuter/Return. Doing this helps to control diseases that might spread throughout the colony. We feed and care for many colonies on a daily basis. When possible, kittens are rescued and fostered until they are healthy and can be adopted to a loving home.



Feral cats, also referred to as stray or alley cats, roam free in communities and generally have had no socialization. A feral kitten less than four or five weeks old can be humanely trapped and tamed to be adopted into a forever home.

Dumpster Cats (Kirkwood, Delaware 19708-0219) is an all-volunteer group dedicated to helping homeless kittens and cats. Collectively, we have helped rescue and find homes for over 1,200 kittens and cats and have spayed and neutered over 1,500 cats.


Our mission is to save the lives of cats and kittens by preventing more from being born.  The more kittens that are prevented, the more will live. This is the new millennium. This is the United States. These are civil times we are living in. And yet, every day, shelters are forced to put down young animals simply because there is not enough space, not enough homes and hearts to take them in. Every night, there are homeless animals out on the street. Cold, hungry, and alone, these cats and dogs have done nothing to deserve the conditions which they must endure. These are animals who were neglected, disregarded, tossed out onto the roadside… some were even born into this life… all because no one cared enough to give them a home, to control the pet population, to do SOMETHING to help. Well now, YOU can do something to help! You can become a member, make a donation… or adopt.

The mission of Forgotten Cats, Inc. (Greenville, Delaware 19807) is to reduce the unwanted cat population without killing and to stop the suffering of the thousands of kittens born to abandoned, homeless cats.


We do this by working with colony caretakers to trap, sterilize, vaccinate, and return every cat within a colony. We provide the necessary medical treatment for sick or injured feral cats, stray cats, and kittens. We are working to find homes for adoptable cats and kittens. We also provide education about spay neuter, and we are assisting other cat rescue groups with trap, neuter, and return programs.

Despite the existence of many animal welfare organizations, the plight of the homeless cat has been ignored by most. For decades, extermination has been the only method utilized to control the homeless cat population. Despite this cruel method of population control, the homeless cat population has not decreased, thus proving that trap and kill does not work.

Forgotten Cats was formed in 2003 (and incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit in 2004) to provide a humane and effective way to prevent the suffering of kittens born to abandoned and homeless cats by humanely controlling the homeless and feral cat population. Starting with no funding and very few volunteers, Forgotten Cats worked to trap, neuter and release (TNR) 20 cats a week. As the word spread about the success of the TNR program, it became clear that Forgotten Cats currently manages one of the largest trap, neuter and return programs nationally.

New Jersey Schnauzer Rescue Network and its members are committed to finding permanent, loving homes for rescued Miniature Schnauzers and Schnauzer mixes throughout the northeastern United States.

Don’t let the name fool you! Although NJSRN was founded in New Jersey in 1997, and was incorporated in that state in 2001, it serves the northeastern United States. NJSRN is staffed entirely by committed volunteers located throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, and Delaware, and is active in several rescue-related groups, including the Mayor’s Alliance for New York City’s Animals and the Central Pennsylvania Animal Alliance.

NJSRN is not a shelter. The dogs are cared for in private foster homes throughout NJSRN’s service area until they are adopted. All donations and adoption fees go toward the care and placement of the dogs — spay/neuter, vaccinations, veterinary expenses, fostering, grooming, transporting, and screening homes.

BREW was founded in February 1999 by Laura Charles Johnson, in response to the growing number of Beagles in the Washington, D.C. area who need help.

Laura had worked in rescue for more than a year before founding BREW. As Laura became more involved in rescue, she learned most breeds were represented by local rescue groups; beagles were the exception. BREW became incorporated in February 1999, and received its non-profit determination from the IRS in April 2000.

BREW is dedicated to rescuing and rehoming Beagles. The main focus is Beagles in shelters who are faced with imminent extermination. BREW works with shelters and animal control facilities throughout the Mid-Atlantic area. It adopts Beagles to local families and has also placed beagles in homes in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York, New Jersey, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts, to name a few.

In addition to its rescue efforts, BREW is dedicated to increasing public awareness of pet overpopulation and encouraging pet owners to spay and neuter their pets. Towards that end, no Beagle over six months of age is adopted from BREW without being spayed or neutered. BREW also works to alert people about the disadvantages of purchasing pets from a pet store.

BREW’s headquarters are located in the Washington/Baltimore area (northern Virginia); it has an affiliate that serves the Midwest region.
