GOOD NEWS FOR FERAL CAT COLONY CARETAKERS!!!
Sheltering Hands, a local cat rescue organization, is in the process of launching Marion County’s first TNR (trap, neuter, release) program for feral/stray cats.
We have l-o-n-g needed this. For me and many others who care for cat colonies it means that we can register our congregations and manage them freely. For those of us who have had head-on collisions with the dreaded animal control people, we will no longer be harassed or live in fear. They, nor anyone else, will be allowed to mess with any registered feral cat colony or their caretakers.
There is an open meeting with Sheltering Hands on July 17, 2011 at 5pm (yes, that’s a Sunday) at what used to be the old Humane Society building at 10699 SW 105th Avenue Ocala, FL. I’ve been told to bring a chair unless I want to stand. They have just taken over the building and are not furnished yet.
Please attend if you are a caretaker, know caretakers, or just have an interest in TNR, Please spread the word..
