I hope you make the leap to TNR with a group. 7 of us started in mid 2006. We run around 20 people doing different jobs in our group. Most are retired and some are snow birds so our numbers fluxuate.
We partner up and help each other. Some people just drive cats to and from S/N appt. Some people just write thank yous for donations, some just foster, some do the trapping and roll out of bed in the middle of the night to check traps. It makes a difference to do it together. Weve all formed a bond. Everyone has a key to my house. We share meds, food, syringes, kennels, etc. If someone needs something we can usually locate it among our members. We work hard together, laugh often, cry together and share triumphs together. Its very satisfying. Were the most active group in 3 counties because so many are retired cat loving people.
