Punky's Pantry will supply cat food donations to community cat caregivers caring for TNR colonies in and around the Philadelphia area. Punky was our first Philly adoption and she embodied everything that is good about her city. Many know the story of how Punky insisted on being our cat, and I am so thankful that we finally listened to her.
She will be missed and loved forever.
The luckiest day in the life of a community cat is the day that an advocate arrives to TNR the colony. My friend and hero Cowboy Bob is one of the best who has been saving the Philly cats for many years. Watch this video to learn what TNR is all about.

Clare & Steve Morrison explain what Mac's Fund is all about:
Trap-Neuter-Return-Manage, or "TNRM,” is the most humane and effective method known for managing feral and stray cats. The cats, who usually live together in a group called a colony, are trapped by dedicated animal rescuers, often at their own expense, and brought to a veterinary clinic. The cats are then given a general exam, spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies and ear tipped to identify them as altered. After they've recovered from their surgeries, the cats are returned back to their original territory as long as the location is deemed safe. Once the colony has been been completely spayed/neutered, the caretaker who provides regular food and shelter should continue to monitor for additional cats and continue to TNR the new cats. When foster or permanent homes are available, young kittens and friendly adults are removed and placed for adoption.
TNR is not only good for the cats, but it is good for the neighborhood too! Spaying and neutering also greatly reduce nuisance behavior. Once the cats have been altered, fighting, yowling and other noise associated with mating is eliminated. The foul odor caused by unaltered males spraying to mark territory disappears. The cats themselves are healthier and less likely to spread feline diseases. Meanwhile, rodent control is maintained by the cats' continued presence.
