Laurie, a friend of mine, is working hard on this project - please do what you can to spread the word around:
New Jersey/Pennsylvania residents: we need your help relocating about 50 stray and feral domestic cats!
The cats are currently being cared for by a community of fisherman and their families, but their proximity to a wildlife preserve requires that we move the cats onto private property. And soon! The preserve is home to several species of birds threatened or endangered in New Jersey, and the breeding/nesting season is almost here!
The Animal Protection League of New Jersey and Save the Animals Foundation, Inc. are coordinating the relocation effort, working closely with other cat rescue and wildlife groups. Both APLNJ and STAF support Trap-Neuter-Return as the most effective means to reduce the feral cat population, and use relocation only in very rare circumstances.
How you can help: If you know anyone who’s able to provide a home (e.g., yard, barn, etc.) for some of these cats, please let them know about this project! All cats are sterilized and vaccinated, and have had a general health check. We would like to move them in groups of two or more.
Transportation and, if necessary, back yard or enclosure fencing will be provided.
Please contact me by leaving a reply to this post or by email carolina (at) happycatfamily (dot) net and I will put you in contact with the right person to make this happen!
Donations can be made here: South Jersey Feral Relocation Project.
Funds will be used for transportation, fencing, TNR, vetting, enclosures, etc. Any extras (if any) will be kept in a fund for future cats/TNR efforts.
While they really need the donations, what is going to help the most is finding a place for those kitties, and the only way to do this is to spread the word....
So please furriends, if you have it your heart to check the site for the project and repost this on your blog... we would be forever grateful!
Thank you so much!
