Our Mission

Ocracats, Inc. is a non-profit organization managed by community volunteers, formed in the early 90’s to control and care for the island’s growing feral cat population. In addition to an aggressive Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) program, we feed the feral colonies, offer medical intervention when possible for those injured or ill, and foster and find adoptive homes for kittens.

Our money comes from donations, fund raisers, grants, and the sale of t-shirts, note cards and calendars. The Ocracoke community is very supportive of our efforts. The Ocracoke Volunteer Fire Department hosts our spay/neuter clinics and many shops have our donation jars. Mermaid’s Folly sells our t-shirts, note cards and calendars that fund many of our activities. In addition, local volunteers have fostered many kittens and many have been adopted by island vacationers. It is a team effort and one of the reasons Ocracoke is such a special destination.

With the help of generous grants for TNR clinics awarded by PetSmart Charities and the Outer Banks Community Foundation we have been able to purchase 70 humane traps, carriers and clinic supplies all of which are available to Ocracoke residents for use.

If you enjoy seeing the cats as you wander the sandy lanes and village streets, think about leaving a donation in one of our jars or writing a check and mailing to Ocracats. All are tax deductible. Or buy a bag of food and bring it to Tradewinds Tackle, The Thrift Store or Mermaids Folly for our food stations.

We always need help to continue the clinics, feed the colonies and to continue with our commitment to the feral cat population on Ocracoke. Please donate.

We maintain a registry of potential adopters for our wonderful Ocrakittens. Please complete this form with your name, postal mailing address, email, and telephone number, and we will add you to our registry.
