Thank you for your interest in helping us! We are still following COVID-19 safety protocol and cannot currently host volunteers on-site at the shelter.
However, we're excited to announce we are creating a Community Cat Program and need a few dedicated people to join us as we expand our Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) operation.
Don't know much about TNR? Don't worry, we will train you. Here's an overview from our friends at Alley Cat Advocates in Louisville:
Trap-Neuter-Return is accepted within the humane movement as the most effective way to stabilize and reduce the unowned cat population. It is also the most humane method. The basic strategy of TNR is to identify an unowned cat or colony of unowned cats, humanely trap them, spay/neuter them, and return them to their environment. The entire process takes from one to three days on average.
This is rewarding and hard work. Volunteers must be over 18 with a driver's license and a reliable vehicle that will allow for transporting cats to and from the site to the shelter and vet. In addition, we will be bending and lifting and getting dirty now and then, so keep that in mind!
We also ask that our volunteers wear a mask, maintain social distancing when possible, and follow other safety requirements while working together.
