DID YOU KNOW:
Some people say: "Just make the cats go away!" This is not the answer.
When cats are removed, other cats move into the area because there is a food source in that location. This is due to something called the Vacuum Effect. Trapping them and taking them to the shelter does not solve the problem either. This is a waste of tax payers money, as each cat intake at the shelter costs approximately $100 where 160 cats per month are euthanized. This number was 550 per month when we first started in 2007!
Feral Cat Rescue promotes Trap, Neuter, Return, Maintain as a great way to reduce the over population of cats. This is also the humane solution.
About Us |
Feral Cat Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to humanely reducing the feral and stray cat population in St. Mary’s County through a variety of methods without euthanasia. With our Trap, Neuter, Return, and Maintain program, feral cats are humanely trapped, then evaluated, vaccinated, and sterilized by veterinarians. Healthy cats too wild to be adopted are returned to their familiar habitat under the lifelong care of volunteers or those people already feeding them. Under our adoption program, the kittens and domestic cats that are adoptable are temporarily placed with foster families until they can be permanently adopted into good homes.
We are a 501(c)3 charity. Most of our monetary donations pay our veterinary bills.
Volunteers and foster parents/families are always needed and welcome.
