Excited about helping cats in our community?

Come to a reception to mobilize our resources on National Feral Cat Day October 16, 2005 from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. at the Wisconsin Humane Society

We will discuss the formation of a coalition to encourage humane treatment of feral cats in our community and to form a new educational initiative to help everyone in our community understand the benefits of TNR (Trap, Neuter, Release) to humans and cats alike!  Learn how you can make a difference for cats in our community!

WHS Helps Community Cat Caregivers

Since it began in the fall of 2001, the Wisconsin Humane Society's (WHS) Community Cat Caregiver Program has treated hundreds of feral cats and prevented the births of thousands of offspring. WHS works with caregivers in the community who humanely trap feral cats and bring them to WHS for a medical examination, temperament testing, vaccinations, microchipping and spay/neuter surgery. Adult feral cats that are healthy and don't have FIV or Feline Leukemia are returned to the caregivers and restored to their territory. Cats that appear to be sociable will be considered adoption candidates and will not be released as feral under the supervision of a caregiver. The goal of this program is to prevent suffering and overpopulation of cats in Milwaukee and Ozaukee County. It is a comprehensive management program that works with community caregivers to sterilize and provide medical treatment to entire feral cat colonies.

WHS Developing Spay/Neuter Clinic in Central Wisconsin

Shelters all over the country struggle daily with the effects of pet overpopulation and Wisconsin is no exception. Successful spay/neuter programs can help to end this epidemic. However, many shelters and low income households don't have access to spay/neuter assistance. As WHS continues to expand sterilization programs in Milwaukee and Ozaukee Counties, in collaboration with PETsMART charities, WHS is exploring sites for a high volume sterilization clinic in the Marathon County area. Our goal is to sterilize between 35 and 50 animals each day, five days per week. This would translate into 13,000 animals in the first year alone; 78,000 cats and 104,000 dogs for a total of 182,000 births would be prevented. We would expect that this would dramatically decrease animal suffering in Wisconsin.

Time: 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.
