Feral Feline Project was founded in June of 2007 by two heartfelt coworkers in Wheeling after several citizens were requesting help with their very large and growing feral cat colonies. We knew of Spay and Stay of Lake County, another Trap Neuter Return (TNR) organization and with their assistance and guidance, we molded Feral Feline Project.
Along with the cooperation of a local vet and 2 new volunteers willing to transport cats to Anti Cruelty Society in Chicago, Feral Feline Project started to TNR. We quickly realized there was a need that reached out farther than Wheeling, so we opened our door to everyone in Northern Cook County. By the end of our first year we had purchased 30 traps, increased to an all volunteer staff of 7 and sterilized and placed close to 150 cats and kittens. We adopt out about 150 cats and kittens each year.

All of our cats and kittens have been screened and examined by our Licensed Veterinarians. They all will be spayed and neutered before adoption. This can be done safely by 12 weeks or 2lbs. They are also tested for FIV and Felv, dewormed, vaccinated for distemeper, Rabies ( no earlier then 16 weeks per state Rabies guidelines), microchippped and registered.
