Our primary mission is assisting the caretakers of feral (wild) cat colonies who want to do TNR. That means they trap the cats, have them tested for FELV and FIV, vaccinated and altered. Our role is supplying equipment and funding for the vet bills, as well as moral support and information.
Whenever possible, kittens and strays are placed in carefully screened adoptive homes (they wait at our vet or in foster homes until they are placed). Feral adults are returned to the colony. Once the colony is “finished”, the caretaker’s role becomes supplying food, water and shelter and picking up any stray that might wander by in search of a handout. Many of the caretakers then become volunteers to help in our fund raising efforts so we can help other colonies!
