The Quincy Area Community Cat Coalition is a nonprofit organization dedicated to humanely reducing the community cat population by non-lethal means. The coalition’s goal is to reduce nuisance behaviors of community cats, stabilize existing cat colonies and provide community awareness through education.

Since its inception in June 2020, the coalition has provided free spay neuter and vaccinations for colonies of feral and community cats. It has assisted with winter housing, food and education on nuisance mitigation by partnering with the Quincy Humane Society and veterinary clinics in Quincy.
