PURPOSE

The purpose of the Street Cats Club is to improve the lives of stray cats throughout the Lyon County, KS area by controlling and reducing the growth of the community cat population through sterilization via trap/neuter/return, providing support and resources for cat colony caregivers, offering foster care for sick, injured, or orphaned stray cats, and educating the public through informative workshops.

history

The Street Cats Club was created in 2019 as a program under the umbrella of the Humane Society of the Flint Hills (HSFH). This allowed the group to partner with the HSFH while it created its own board of directors, finances, volunteer base, etc. After one year in the HSFH incubator program, the group moved out on its own and began operating independently. In October 2021, the Street Cats Club became an official 501c3, nonprofit charitable organization.
