About Us

Our Mission

Central Cat Coalition believes in second chances for community cats. Our mission is to reduce and manage the community cat population of Mt. Pleasant through humane trap neuter and return, and to empower the community to coexist with these cats through education.

Central Cat Coalition plans to apply for non-profit 501c(3) status so our efforts can be supported by grants and reach even more neighborhoods.

Who We Are

Chair
Desiree Bigard

I have been in the animal rescue industry since 2017, though my love for cats goes back to my childhood. I have worked in an animal shelter, and have spent a lot of time volunteering for multiple rescues in the community. My main passion lies with fostering kittens. I have a passion for spreading awareness and educating others on kitten care so that every kitten being born to an unowned cat has their best chance at survival. My interest in TNR stems from the desire to prevent these litters from being born into an environment that can’t support them. 

I am president of the Central Cat Coalition, and when I’m not catching cats or caring for kittens, I’m spending time with my family or working on my continued education in business management and marketing.

I am a senior biology student at Central Michigan University with a passion for all cats: big and small. While I advocate for the conservation of Big Cats, I also advocate for humane population control for unowned domestic cats that suffer from the kitten cycle. I believe that TNR benefits community cats that aren’t compatible with human companionship while slowly reducing their effect on local wildlife. Currently, I am the Communication Coordinator at Central Cat Coalition, I volunteer at the Karma Kat Cafe, and recently completed an internship at the Association to Rescue Kritters (ARK) Wildlife Rehabilitation Center.
