Cat Depot Programs Support Feral Cats

Dec 14, 2012 05:28PM


Feral cat colonies are being registered now in Cat Depot’s Community Cat Program. The homeless kitties live behind stores, in alleyways, near dumpsters and in the shadows. Says Shelley Thayer, Cat Depot’s Executive Director, “they are our community’s cats, and they need our help.”
The best way to control overpopulation of community cats is to manage the cat colonies through spay and neuter efforts. Cat Depot supports these efforts through a full circle program that includes registration of colonies, availability of humane traps, free and no-cost sterilization resources, educational classes on safe trapping and colony care, a cat colony hotline for advice, and a food distribution program.
Cat Depot is seeking fi nancial support to feed an enormous number of empty tummies. If you can help, please call Shelley Thayer at 941-366-2494 or email [email protected] Cat Depot is located at 2542 17th Street in Sarasota. Learn more at
