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.
