Garden City Community Cats Project

The Garden City Community Cats Project is being organized to encourage the community to share responsibility for the city’s feral cats with the few caregivers who have taken on the overwhelming tasks of caring for our colonies and Trap Neuter and Return (TNR) expenses.

 The Garden City feral cat population is out of control. Though we have always had a caring few who maintain our colonies, this is a low-income area, and caregivers are using the little money they have to pay for:

-        Feeding
-        Trapping
-        Fostering
-        Intake costs for kittens and domestic cats
-        Medical costs for treatment or euthanasia
-        Transportation
-        Low-cost spay and neutering.

 These efforts of a few are not sustainable. Cats are multiplying faster than they are being trapped.

One of our colonies has more than 20 feral cats and kittens. There are dozens of similar colonies in Garden City.
The cats belong to the whole community, not to just the few people who have taken on the responsibility.

We believe in TNR as a way to show compassion to our cat community while respecting neighbors who just want to see an end to the feral population’s growth. It is a process that has been proven to work. Even the Humane Society is finding it superior to euthanasia.

SNIP-Spay Neuter Idaho Pets, Inc estimates one cat and its offspring can be responsible for 420,000 cats in 10 years. In areas where TNR has been practiced, feral colonies decline drastically rather than multiply.

The good news is we have skilled and experienced colony caregivers to guide us through Garden City. They know the troubled areas and can pass on their skills to the increasing population of cat lovers who want to get involved.

Anything you can contribute will go directly to the selfless people who are giving love and care to our feral cat population. Together we can solve this problem.

 Thank you for caring!
