Coney Island train yard feral cats need relocating to South Carolina. Please help!

John Cincotta is a railway worker in Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York, USA. For the past 10 years he has been caring for feral cats at the train yard where he works. He currently cares for 10 cats in the age range 3 to 12 years. He has spayed and neutered over 100 cats. He is retiring at the end of the summer.

Railway worker seeks funding to relocate feral cats to SC from NY

Also, a major rebuilding construction job is starting at the train yard which is expected to last for five years. As a consequence, his feral cats are in danger. Of course, he has to contend with people who dislike feral cats as well.

He says that with sorrow he has decided that the best thing to do is to relocate them to a sanctuary in South Carolina. I don’t have information about the sanctuary or how he has made the arrangements. Perhaps he will tell us in a comment. However, we do know that he needs funding for the project.

John has started a funding project on Facebook. He is aiming to raise US$1000 and at the time of dictating this he has raised almost $200. PLEASE CLICK THIS LINK TO GO TO HIS FUNDRAISING PAGE.

On this page is a screenshot of his post on Facebook in which he asks for funds. All I am asking for is that people share this post with others on Facebook as much as possible to see whether he can attain his $1000 target to help the feral cats that he has cared for for such a long time.

I am one of those people who admires tremendously people like John who quietly go about their business in helping vulnerable animals. It takes a lot of decency, persistence and discipline to do this and he deserves the reward of seeing his cats safe and sound in a sanctuary. It would be nice to think that we can help him achieve this.
