Friends of Ferals responded to an urgent situation involving an estimated 15 unaltered feral cats in Jordantown. No other rescue organizations were able to help with the magnitude of this problem, including SPCA Nova Scotia as their mobile spay/neuter unit is not operational until May. We believe that several cats succumbed to predators, so we took immediate action.
So far, we have rescued and spay/neutered 16 cats or kittens at that location at a total cost of $2,260.63. 3 cats were adopted through a partner veterinarian in the city, 1 cat was adopted by a relative of the finder, 8 cats were rehomed into two wonderful barn homes, 3 cats were TNR (trap-neuter-return) and are being fed and sheltered at that location, and one cat (“Jordan”) remains in our foster care. We have now rescued most of the cats in this colony but there are still at least two more out there we hope to trap, including one very elusive adult cat.
WE ARE APPEALING for your help with costs and are asking for donations of any amount. No amount is too small.
Donations would be very much appreciated and may be made by eTransfer or PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by cash or cheque to Society for the Friends of Ferals, PO Box 1527, Digby, NS B0V 1A0. For all donations of $10.00 or more, official donation receipts for income tax purposes will be issued immediately.
