Our Mission: VCC is a grass roots cat rescue/non-profit focused on helping local cats and contributing to the reduction of euthanasia in local shelters. Long term VCC hopes to see Sarasota and Charlotte counties convert to become true "No Kill" communities for cats and dogs.
 


Where it all began: The Venice Cat Coalition (VCC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) animal rescue organization based in Venice, Florida. VCC was founded in 2006. Its purpose is to promote feline spay-neuter in our community to reduce the euthanasia of cats in shelters and reduce the number of kitten births. Our programs include spay-neuter and Trap-Neuter-Return assistance, cat and kitten adoptions and medical assistance to "last chance" community cats.

Achievements: As of 2020, the VCC has brought approximately 150-800 cats annually to vets or free clinics for sterilization, taken in approximately 100-450 cats and kittens per year needing rehoming, and successfully advocated for new policies and practices in Sarasota, Desoto and Charlotte counties regarding cats and animals. VCC’s budget grew from $6,000 in its first year to more than $40,000 annually in recent years. Strong partnerships and relationships were forged with numerous businesses and vendors. VCC established non-profit shelter discount programs with companies like Pfizer, Bayer, IDEXX and others. We have partnered with local pet stores and vet offices for adoptions and Petsmart Charities became a valuable partner in their rescue programs for cats. Grants were awarded from the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, the national ASPCA, PetSmart Charities, the Petco Foundation and Hewlett Packard. Best Friends No More Homeless Pets network also provided financial aid to VCC’s pediatric program.
