To be the Voice of the Community Cats.
To get all "Community Cats" to be none producing in New Hampshire.
Welcome from Friends of the Feral Cats
In the spring of 2011 three caring people Becky Cote, Karen Laflamme, Trisha LeRoux and a handful of volunteers joined together to form "Friends of the Feral Cats NH" to help the community cats of the Lakes Region.
They started at a mobile home park in Gilford NH and since then have handled 86 colonies over four counties and a total of 1,300 cats. This has been made possible by generous donations by cat lovers throughout the community. It has made a tremendous impacted on the amount of community cats in these towns, but we are still have a long way to go before we have community cat colonies under control...
What is TNR Trap-Neuter-Return and why it works
Trap-Neuter-Return is the humane and effective approach for stray and feral cats. Now in practice for decades in the US after being proven in Europe, scientific studies show that Trap-Neuter-Return improves the lives of feral cats, improves their relationships with the people who live near them, and decreases the size of colonies over time. Trap-Neuter-Return is successfully practiced in hundreds of communities and in every landscape and setting. It is exactly what it sounds like: Cats are humanely trapped and taken to a veterinarian to be neutered and vaccinated. After recovery, the cats are returned to their home—their colony—outdoors. Kittens and cats who are friendly and socialized to people may be adopted into homes.
STOP THE KILLING!!!!
The number one documented cause of death for cats in America is being killed in shelters. Over 70% of cats entering shelters are killed—a figure that rises to nearly 100% for feral cats, who cannot be adopted. For decades, animal control policy has wasted millions of dollars catching and killing outdoor cats, but populations of cats are still there, just as they always have been. Clearly, this cruel and costly system has failed.
