We are all about cats!
Stray Feral Rescue and CatTown ended the 2014 year very positively!
We spayed and neutered more than 100 cats, rescued and rehomed more than 30 in MN and 29 in WI, relocated a colony that was located on property that was being sold, assisted a number of people to get veterinary care for their cats, and are now helping with a colony north of Amery, as well as the other 7 colonies we care for in WI. In MN we provided kitty housing for quite a few cats in MN, and helped to provide veterinary care for a fair number of strays that needed help badly. We helped a number of people get veterinary care for their cats as well. All in all, we think that the cat world is a little better off for our being around.
We are very proud to say that no kittens were born last year in any of the colonies that we care for. As there are almost 300 cats in those colonies and groups that we care for or help out with, that is a lot of kittens that will not be born! This means a lot fewer homeless and feral cats than there would have been, and a much better life for those cats. We make sure all of them have warm shelters, all get fed and watered every day, all are health monitored, vaccinated and receive vet care if needed. Any new cats that show up are caught, spayed/neutered and vetted. If we can we find them a home, but Unfortunately there are never enough homes to go around.
One of our WI colonies had to be relocated early this winter. The ladies caring for those cats had to give up the property and move into town late in November. It was so cold that we had to do the trapping with us waiting on site, as it would not have been safe to leave them in a trap for very long. We were able to catch them all and get them resettled north of Amery and as of the end of January 2015, they all are healthy and happy and doing well. As soon as the ladies find an apartment that will allow pets they will be taking back two of the cats from the colony. They miss their cats very much.
We want to thank all the other rescues that helped us out with adoptions, food, and so much advice and support. We are finally getting the hang of running a non-profit corporation!
We are so grateful to those of you who donated money and food and other supplies. There is no way we can help anyone, two or four legged, without being able to provide the food, shelter, and vet care needed. You have all done wonderful things for a lot of cats by giving us the means to take care of them. We hope that you will continue to support us, as there is always so much more we could do. The donation button remains on the left side of the screen or you can send a check. Just contact us for our address. All donations are tax deductible!
