This was in our newest newsletter from my TNR group. Its interesting what happens when determined women & a couple men get together!
In our first two years, we have made amazing strides in our work with feral cats.
Using the principals of TNR we have reached a milestone of humanely trapping 500 cats:
42% were tame cats who were adopted into good homes, 40% were truly feral and returned to their original colony, and 11% were relocated to stables and barns.
And perhaps one of our proudest success stories-in 2007, we were able to spay and neuter all the cats in an Arivaca colony and an Amado colony. The caretakers watching those colonies tell us that this spring, there were NO kittens born.
