You Can Help Cats This Winter
2020 has been challenging for community cats. The shutdown of veterinary offices due to the pandemic occurred in the peak of “kitten season”, and populations have continued to grow ever since.
To get a head start on 2021, Pet Friendly Services is pledging $50,000 in matching grants to groups who can safely Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) during the winter months. We will provide $1,000 to each TNR program in matching grants, and will expand as our funding allows.
Want to Learn More About Community Cat Programs?
We teamed up with Indy Neighborhood Cats for a special TNR project to find six adorable cats a brand-new home in a Zionsville barn! “Pet Friendly” Pet Reporter, Buffy Phyne, has the where, what, why and how community cat programs like this one can help cats AND dogs across the state.
Where Else We’re Helping
When we control the Community Cat Population, we save more dogs, too! Less cats in shelters means more room for dogs and more lives being saved – so here’s how we’re making a difference:
- Provided funding for 40 cats in several multi-cat households with the Humane Society of Washington County
- Supported the Humane Society of Hobart with TNR funding to completely fix a 30-cat colony.
- Fully funded two days of surgeries with Public Vet to address a critical situation in Knox, Indiana, while also providing winter shelters for outdoor cats and transporting adoptable cats to alternate shelters.
- Provided funding for 80 cats to support a joint effort between CanINE Express and Feral Cat Friends to reduce spring litters in Monroe, Greene, Owen, and Lawrence counties.
