Working in East Orange, our work parking lot at 60 Evergreen Place is inundated with kitties. We estimate that there are around 60 feral cats, which in one location is immense. It’s anticipated that there will be more than 100 in a few weeks’ time.
We are working with a person from PAWS in Montclair, who used to work at this location years ago. She implemented TNR (trap, neuter, release) and adoption program here, and there were no more cats when she left.
We really want to continue her work and have these cats “fixed” before kitten spring fever hits. We have dedicated volunteers to do the work; however, it costs $55 for each cat to be fixed and vetted.
With the NJ winter upon us, most feral cats will die from starvation, hypothermia, or illness. Yet, in that time, they can produce multiple litters. We are looking for help to save these cats and to stop the birth of even more unwanted animals. Even if it is just $1, every little bit helps.
