  Attention Please : We go on Winter Break from late November thru March, No TNR's until it warms up as it is hard on the females after surgery


Altered Feral State is organized to address issues related to feral cats in Walton, Barrow, Newton, Rockdale Counties in Georgia to improve the lives of homeless and feral cats and eliminate their breeding through Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR).  To educate the public about the plight of stray and feral cats and the need to spay/neuter pets, to promote the adoption of long-term, caretaker-based solutions regarding feral cats, and to find loving forever homes for cats/kittens brought into our care.

Our vision is to have communities where no kittens are born wild, where no cat capable of living in a home is lacking one, and where no adult feral cats go wanting for food, water, and appropriate care and concern.

Attention Please!

We rescue kittens/cats from feral TNR projects (Trap, Neuter, and Return) that our organization is asked to assist with. Because of the high volume that we take in from these projects, we are unable take in unwanted, found, or stray cats/kittens. Thank You for your understanding.

We do NOT remove/relocate feral cats that are on your property!

We do not accept owner surrenders!

We do not take in cats/kittens you find!

We are committed to:

  • Assisting individuals and communities with controlling the feral cat population through scheduled TNR projects.  These cats are transported to the vet for spay/neuter and rabies vaccine and then returned to their home properties.  
  • We are the in store adoption partner for PetSmart located in Winder, GA at the Barrow Crossing shopping center. We are committed to finding the perfect home for the cats and kittens in our care.  Applicants are fully screened to ensure the future wellbeing of these animals.
  • Before the cats and kittens are moved to the adoption center they spend time in our shelter until their vetting is completed. All cats are vaccinated with FVRCP and Rabies vaccines, are spayed/neutered, combo tested for FIV/FELV, de-wormed and treated with flea preventive.  On top of this, they are showered around the clock with love and care by our volunteers.  We believe in going above and beyond to provide any and everything the cats entrusted to our care may need.
