May 9, 2012
The Feral CAT (Community Assistance & Training) Program is meant to assist organizations who are working towards the goal of implementing a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program throughout their community. By offering expert guidance and targeted funding, Feral CAT aims to increase and speed your organization's chances of success. Whether you're just starting out and trying to decide on first steps, or have already made progress but are facing new obstacles, Feral CAT wants to help!
The program is administered by Neighborhood Cats, one of the leading feral cat groups in the United States. With many years of experience helping communities put together large-scale TNR efforts, Neighborhood Cats is in a unique position to pass lessons learned on to others, identify problem areas and provide workable solutions.
In 2012 four groups will be selected to participate in Feral CAT. Participation includes:
- A detailed assessment of your community and organization in terms of current feral cat-related resources and policies.
- Creation of a strategic plan designed to spread the practice of TNR throughout your community.
- Targeted funding (average $5,000) designed to further key elements of the strategic plan.
- Ongoing mentoring as the strategic plan is put into effect.
All aspects of the program will involve close consultation with your organization. To qualify for participation in Feral CAT, your organization must be an IRS approved section 501 (c)(3) nonprofit or a government agency, highly motivated, and able to complete the assessment, strategic planning and implementation. Interested? Write, call or email us for an application at:

Application deadline is June 8, 2012.
Neighborhood Cats thanks the trustees of The John T. and Jane A. Wiederhold Foundation for their generous grant of $20,000 in support of Feral CAT. The Foundation's mission is to protect and improve the welfare of animals.
