Since the program began in February of 2016, over 2,000 outdoor cats in Cobb County have been sterilized, vaccinated and ear tipped.
The program provides:
- Help humanely trapping free roaming cats so they can be spayed/neutered, vaccinated, ear tipped and returned to their home area. Ear tipping is the universal symbol of a spayed or neutered outdoor cat.

Who is Best Friends?
Best Friends Animal Society is a leading national animal welfare organization dedicated to ending the killing of dogs and cats in America's shelters. In addition to running lifesaving programs in partnership with more than 2,500 animal welfare groups across the country, Best Friends has regional centers in New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Salt Lake City, and operates the nation's largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals. Founded in 1984, Best Friends is a pioneer in the no-kill movement and has helped reduce the number of animals killed in shelters nationwide from 17 million per year to about 800,000. That means there are still nearly 2,200 dogs and cats killed every day in shelters, just because they don’t have safe places to call home. We are determined to get that number to zero by the year 2025. Working collaboratively with shelters, rescue groups, other organizations and you, we will end the killing and Save Them All.
Best Friends is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Together, we can Save Them All.
