PVAS’ Community Cat Program represents an agreement between Best Friends Animal Society and PVAS that includes funding to support staffing, vehicles, and supplies in support of a trap-spay/neuter-return program for the purpose of reducing community cat populations and feline shelter intake. This program serves Edinburg, McAllen, Hidalgo City, Palmview, Palmhurst, La Joya, and addresses in Hidalgo County that are outside of Pharr and Mission city limits.

Did you find a litter of kittens? Make sure you're not 'kitnapping!' 

Kittens need their mom, if you find kittens, don't touch them! Kittens survive much better outside waiting for their mother, who is probably hunting nearby, than in a shelter - any shelter. You might think you're helping by picking them up, but you may be ‘kitnapping’ them. Leave them be and reach out to our Community Cat Program if you have questions.


Not sure if you’re kitnapping? Use these flow charts to assess your situation.
