All 4 Cats is a no-kill cat rescue and community outreach located in Wilmington, NC. We are an all-volunteer organization and our mission is saving and improving the lives of cats.  Our primary focus is working with the community to rescue stray cats.  We nurse the animals back to health, spay/neuter, socialize, and then we find them permanent and loving homes. When we are able, we also work with local animal shelters to rescue and re-home pets. ​

We are a foster-based organization, so our volunteers are able to closely observe an animal's behavior to match them with the most suitable forever home.  In addition to adoptions, our volunteers are always thinking of other ways to keep cats safe, such as our courtesy re-homing program, posting lost cats on social media, and providing the community with education and resources.

All 4 Cats was found in 2014 by Justin, Val, Polly, and Allison. 

All 4 Cats is a 501(c)3 registered organization and your donations are tax-deductible.  Please support our cause by becoming a foster, volunteer, donor, or adopter!
