Gardenland Mission Inc is a community cat rescue and sanctuary, founded and incorporated as a Florida not-for-profit organization in 2009, and granted federal 501(c)(3) public charity status effective in 2012. Our mission states that Gardenland Mission Inc is “dedicated to the rescue and care of feral, abandoned, and in-need animals in our community.”
Gibsonton Florida is a small community with a vast number of homeless cats. They find their way to one of the many community cat colonies. Because most of these cats have never received veterinary services, they breed and produce feral kittens. The Humane Society of Tampa Bay has estimated that Hillsborough County has approximately 200,000 community cats. About 1% or 2,000 are located in Gibsonton.
Newly abandoned cats can be rescued, rehabilitated, and placed for adoption. Feral cats can be trapped, neutered, and returned (TNR'd) to their colonies to help eliminate breeding and reduce the growth rate of the colonies. Gardenland Mission helps local residents and businesses with rescue and TNR services and maintains a sanctuary garden setting for community cats that have no chance of finding forever homes.
Your support and contributions help Gardenland Mission to achieve our goals to care for the abandoned and feral cats in our community. In addition to TNR and other veterinarian fees, every month we use 500 pounds of dry cat food, 300 pounds of litter, 50 rolls of paper towels, 50 pounds of newspaper, and endless amounts of flea treatments, and medicines. We provide the love and care, but we need your help to cover these necessary expenses.
Gardenland Mission donated 120 face masks to Hillsborough County Sheriff's Deputies in an effort to keep our first responders safe.
