Wayward Whiskers will celebrate our 10th anniversary this year! While taking in cats has always been a core part of what we do and who we are, we have decided to shift direction. Starting in April 2022, we will no longer be taking in cats. 


We have established the Wayward Whiskers Foundation to help feral cat colony caretakers with food and spay/neuter services. We will also assist pet parents with unexpected vet bills as we have funding available. 


To receive food from the foundation, all cats in the colony must be spayed or neutered or in the process of being trapped and fixed. If you need assistance trapping and fixing the cats, we will refer you to the San Antonio Feral Cat Coalition


If you would like assistance from the foundation, please complete the application below and email it to We will review the application within 3-5 business days. Food donations will be granted as available based on greatest need.

Wayward Whiskers Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in San Antonio, TX founded in January 2013. Until April 2022 we operated as a cat rescue but we no longer take in cats. We established the foundation to support feral cat colonies by providing food and spay/neuter services to their caretakers.  We will also assist families with vet bills and other associated pet costs as we have funding available. We want to keep cats in their homes and prevent them from being surrendered to shelters, abandoned or euthanized. 


Wayward Whiskers operates solely on support from individual and corporate donors. We do not receive any city or government funding.
