How We Started
The beginnings of Bayberry Feline Rescue can be traced back to April of 2022, when a neighborhood mama cat, Big Mama, chose a tool shed as a safe place to raise her young. Despite her best efforts, her previous litters were unfortunately preyed upon by coyotes. However, when she brought her latest litter to the shed, the founder of Bayberry Feline Rescue was moved by the sight of these young, vulnerable animals and reached out to the local humane society for assistance. This marked the beginning of their journey as a foster volunteer, and soon they realized the need for more care and support for neonatal orphan, unwanted, and abandoned cats. In response, they converted their sunroom into a socialization room and established Bayberry Feline Rescue in October of 2022, driven by their passion for animal welfare.

Unlike other rescues, at Bayberry Feline Rescue we raise all our fur babies in a home environment and treat them as our own family member. They enjoy the same awesome treats as our resident cats; home-cooked chicken, salmon, beef, and pumpkin, just to name a few! They take the same daily vitamins: NOW Pets L-Lysine Immune System Support & Nutri-Vet Multi-Vite Multivitamin Paw Gel for Cats: Daily Vitamin and Mineral Support. We also incorporate a bit of diatomaceous earth into their diet for health maintenance. We have regular routine nail trimming days and bath/ear cleaning days to stay on top of their hygiene and to get them used to these practices. Ask us about Bayberry Feline Rescue's Etiquette and Continued Education Training! Needless to say, we love and treat them like family, and we hope you will love them the same. :)

We are dedicated to providing loving homes and comprehensive care, including medical treatment, to felines in need until they find their forever homes. Our goal is to not only rescue cats, but also to reduce the population of feral cats in our community and surrounding areas through education and the implementation of trap-neuter-return programs.
What We Do
Trap, neuter, release (TNR) is a program where feral cats are trapped, spayed/neutered, and released back into the environment. Spaying and neutering these feral cats help with reducing the feral cat colonies in the area. There has been a growing feral cat population in our area, which has in turn attracted more coyotes as well. We want to safely reduce the amount of feral cats in the area and provide our rescues with safe homes.
Neonatal kittens are kittens that under 4 weeks of age. These orphaned kittens are still too young to eat solid foods on their own. They cannot thermoregulate nor pee or poop on their own. With how young they are, they require feeding every 2-3 hours, including overnights. Our rescue has had hands-on experience in caring for neonatal kittens, as well as taken classes for neonatal care in order to provide these babies the best support possible. We also have a special nursery set up in a separate area for these precious angels!
We work closely with our volunteer foster families. We treat all of our rescue like our beloved pets, and we believe all pets are family members. Our babies are all raised in a cage-free, home environment, with LOTS of attention and love! If you are interested in becoming a foster, please fill out our foster application.
