The $500 grant was used to spay/neuter 12 cats. Due to Covid, no TNR (trap, neuter, return) was being performed. This resulted in an abundance of kittens.
We had limited funding during this pandemic. Receiving the grant allowed us to help more cats, thus decreasing the stray population.
One of our volunteers went to pick up a pregnant mama. During transit, the cat gave birth in the carrier. She and her five babies’ chances of survival were very slim. The area she came from is a highly populated area and the kittens in that area were being used for BB-gun target practice. All the cats have been or will be adopted.
