Atlantic Beach Cats Inc.

AB Cats Inc. is a volunteer organization that works to reduce the Village’s free-roaming cat population through our humane Trap-Neuter-Return Program.  Our program has been nationally recognized as one of the outstanding programs in the country for its success.  Please notify the Village office if you see kittens or know of any free-roaming cats that require spay/neuter.  Feral cats that have been fixed have their left ear tipped.  All cats are returned to where they were trapped after they are spayed/neutered.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, neutering clinics were closed down until recently.  As a result, our feral cat population has had a dramatic increase.  AB Cats volunteers are working hard to bring the population back under control.  If you see feral cats that are not left ear tipped please call the Village Office and they will contact us.

If you allow your cat to go outside please make sure your cat is wearing a collar & ID tag.  Please spay/neuter your cats.

Fundraising for AB Cats goes on 12 months a year.  Please help by:

  1. Volunteering your time
  2. Fostering a cat/kitten until a permanent home is found
  3. Support our fundraising events
  4. Shop at Amazon while supporting AB cats: go to: www.smile.amazon.com  Atlantic Beach Cats, Inc.

A small percentage of the money you spend will come back to AB Cats.

AB Cats is always in need of your Tax Deductible Donation.  100% of your donation goes to the TNR and care of the feral cat population in Atlantic Beach.

PLEASE SPAY/NEUTER YOUR PET CATS!

The Village Garden is a demonstration/learning community garden where residents of all ages and abilities are invited to volunteer, share skills and grow organic, pesticide-free herbs, vegetables, and flowering plants. The garden donates most of its harvested crops to local soup kitchens and food pantries, with the remaining vegetables used for garden classes or events. Any small surplus beyond those purposes gets shared among the volunteers. All residents are welcome to stop by during open hours and take home a bouquet of organic herbs. 

The community garden is a year-round endeavor. We start all our plants from seeds in the winter through early spring under grow lights in Village Hall. As soon as our growing season ends in November, we begin preparations for the next one. 

As this summer comes to an end, we extend our appreciation to all the residents who supported our plant sale and everyone who attended the garlic and shallot festival. We also thank the Scouts who helped us set up the garden at the beginning of the season and the local children who participated in our ladybug release.
