Founded in 1997, Adopt a River Cat (A.R.C.) is a no-kill organization based in the Fox Valley area that is dedicated to the spaying and neutering of stray cats and kittens.
Over the last decade, A.R.C. has been committed to providing a humane alternative to this method, by placing adoptable cats and kittens into no-kill shelters, or by following the standards of Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR). This approach mandates that feral cats be trapped, sterilized, and returned to a managed colony where food, shelter and medical care is provided.
