Save the Cats of South Slope

I relocated from Upstate New York to New York City ten years ago, and ever since I have been both moved and appalled at the condition of stray and feral cats in the five buroughs. New York City is not a fun place to live if you are a stray or feral cat. The streets are mean. Thousands of cats die every year from exposure, cars, medical neglect, starvation and even abuse by certain ignorant city residents. The lucky few who live into adulthood struggle daily to survive. Few thrive. Many are removed from the streets by an underfunded and overwhelmed Animal Control system. They are then given only a short period of time to be adopted or rescued by the various non-profit groups that operate in the city. If no help comes, they are euthanized in city shelters.

Luckily, in recent years a new phenomena known as Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) has become a popular and successful method in controlling the city's feral cat population. Unlike mass collection and euthanasia, TNR humanely controls the city's feral cat colonies. Local volunteers are certified to trap animals and bring them in for discounted spaying and neutering services at participating providers. The cats are assessed for adoptability, vaccinated and if they are deemed healthy, released back into their neighborhood of origin where volunteer care-givers feed and maintain the colony.

This page is dedicated to "TNRing" and maintaining a colony of Cats located in the 21st Street area of South Slope in Brooklyn. We are looking for funds to deal with whatever food costs and veterinary services might arise during this process. Please help alleviate the suffering of these animals and prevent more at-risk animals from being born onto the streets. Donate today!
