We live in South Frontenac Township just north of Kingston Ontario. Three years ago, a small kitten appeared on our back deck trying to eat out of the bird feeder. We felt sorry for this little kitten and put some food out for it. A few days later 2 more kittens appeared. We cared for them briefly, waiting to see if the mother appeared but she never did. We were able to rescue them and found them a good home. However in that brief period, they shared the news of a sanctuary with their friends and more cats appeared. We later learned that a house in the neighbourhood was repossesed and they found a colony of cats inside which they simply let loose to fend for themselves.
We have been self funding the support of up to 25 cats for the last few years but really need help to get these cats spayed and neutered to try to control the cat population. Kittens born in the wild have a low survival rate. Jake, our dog, begrudginingly allowed us to take in one of the pregnant females to raise and socilize the kittens to be rehomed. We're happy to report that the 5 kittens have all found good homes.
Feeding and caring for these cats require alot of time and money. The monies raised will be priamrily used initialy for veterinary costs to get them spayed and neutered and then towards food and shelter in the form of insulated totes and larger shelters.
Your support would be greatly appreciated!
