Our Mission: Street Cat Hub is dedicated to improving the lives of New Mexico’s cat population. The main focus is feral cat/colony population control using humane alternatives to euthanasia such as TNR (trap, neuter & return). Street Cat Hub is dedicated to providing education and steady resources to ensure the well being of the feral and free roaming cat population. Street Cat Hub strives to be an example for other rescue programs throughout New Mexico that opt for TNR as an eventual solution to the over population of feral cats.
Street cat Hub Inc. was founded on August 5, 2014. It was created to continue the work of a 3 year start up program administered by Best Friends Animal Society and PetSmart Charities. They joined forces with the City of Albuquerque to reduce the euthanasia of cats at the city shelter and to end the euthanasia of healthy feral cats. This million dollar program was hugely successful. By design, PetSmart Charities and Best Friends Animal Society ended their support on April 1, 2015, with Street Cat Hub taking over the program.
Jayne began TNR work as an advocate for her neighborhood. Fixing over 70 cats in her own yard, she began to look into nearby neighborhoods to assist there. Appalled by the euthanasia numbers at the Albuquerque shelter, she began advocating for TNR city wide. She volunteered for NMAF Street Cat Companion Program for around 10 years. She was then employed by Best Friends, serving as program coordinator the final year. She went on to found Street Cat Hub specifically to continue the work of the successful Best Friends program.
