- Volunteers - we will need volunteers to assist with trapping, transporting, and feeding feral colonies. We currently need at least 4 volunteers to feed a colony up in the Trinity area! If you can help with feeding this Colony please apply here: https://petstablished.com/petlover/general_form/49611
- Veterinary Assistance - Our biggest issues facing rescue in general is Vetting. We need vets willing to give us Low Cost Spay/Neuter, Rabies, and Ear Tip! We will need about 17 - 20 spots a week! Vets in Iredell County are preferred because all of these cats are Iredell County Cats and it would make transport easier than going out of county to vets!
- Barns - If you have or know of someone that has a barn that needs Barn Cats let us know. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. We will typically be TNR to the same location we trapped them but on the rare a occasion we need an alternate location for the cats safety we will need a list of places.
- Money - There is not money in TNR. It costs approximately $50 - $60 per TNR cat for Spay/Neuter, Rabies, and Ear tip! We are not supported by the county and do NOT receive county funds for this. We are working on grants for things like this but have to wait for the open application periods.
We will be posting more about this soon and we will work on getting stats from animal control showing the reason this is so important.
IF YOU HAVE A COMMUNITY CAT COLONY THAT YOU NEED HELP WITH IN IREDELL COUNTY, PLEASE CALL IREDELL COUNTY ANIMAL SERVICES AT 704-878-5424.
They will be tracking all of the colonies in the county that need help and will be passing that information along to us. The more volunteers we have the more colonies we can tackle!
Thank you and we look forward to this endeavor and hopefully making a HUGE impact in the Cat population in Iredell County!
