​Our Mission

To improve the lives of cats, their owners and caretakers in Madison, Culpeper and Greene Counties, Virginia.
MAD Cats operates a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program, the globally recognized humane approach to help control cat overpopulation in the United States and around the world. We serve domestic and community cats, their owners and caretakers, by providing low to no cost spays, neuters and vaccinations.

From Debra H.

"THANK YOU TO MAD CATS...Sassy our one female has a urinary tract infection and MAD CATS made it possible for her to see a vet & get the treatment she needs...there was no way we could afford it...I hope & pray she can clear it out or she might have to be put down..she & the 3 other cats we have are like our kids it would be heart breaking...THANK YOU MAD CATS"

From Linda M: "You are wonderful! Everyone is so nice. Thank you for everything!"

From Shirley Ammon: "Thank you for helping us with Zach, we knew NOTHING about cats, always had dogs. Zach has turned out to be a great companion!"

From Alycia: "Hi, I just wanted to say thank you again for the cat food, and thank you for the cat shelters! I'm not sure if they are using them yet, but at least now they have an option."
