Already, U.S. animal shelters are forced to kill millions of homeless cats and dogs annually. The alternative to humane euthanasia for almost every stray is a violent end or slow, painful death. Many "throwaways" die mercilessly outdoors from starvation, disease, abuse — or as food for a predator.

A pair of breeding cats, which can have two or more litters per year, can exponentially produce 420,000 offspring over a seven-year period. And the overpopulation problem carries a hefty price tag. Statewide, more than $50 million (largely from taxes) is spent by animal control agencies and shelters for cat-related expenses.

Feral cats are the "wild" offspring of domestic cats and are primarily the result of pet owners' abandonment or failure to spay and neuter their animals, allowing them to breed uncontrolled. Feral cat "colonies" can be found behind shopping areas or businesses, in alleys, parks, abandoned buildings, and rural areas. They are elusive and do not trust humans.

Many people assume their animals will survive when they move away and leave them behind. Contrary to popular belief, domestic animals do not automatically return to their "natural" instincts and cannot fend for themselves!

My name is Lisa and I have a deep love for animals and caring for them. My mother, Rose, shares this love and the two of us have cared for a colony of feral cats for the last 6 years.

The colony of cats has ranged between 35-75 cats in number throughout caring for them. We have used our own finances to provide food, vaccines, medical attention, etc. and have controlled the population through a local spay and neutering program specifically for feral cats. Though these cats were born in the wild we treat them as our own cats and have seen many socialized and adopted throughout the years.

Currently we have 35 cats in our care that aren’t adoptable. We estimate that we spend $5,000-6,500 a year to make sure the cats are taken care of. Recently we’ve begun asking for donations to help pay for the recurring expenses to care for these cats and would greatly appreciate your consideration to help us with our endeavor to love and care for this colony.
