Two supporters of the City of Hartford Animal Shelter have committed themselves to the task of helping a feral cat colony living in an abandoned house in North Haven.
The plan is to have all the cats and kittens seen by a veterinarian. The kittens will be placed in foster care, spayed or neutered and homes will be found for each of them. The cats and older kittens who are not candidates to be placed in homes will be trapped, spayed or neutered, and returned to their original environment (TNR). The focus is on getting all the cats and kittens attended to before it gets cold.
The ladies coordinating this humanitarian effort are doing so without support from an animal shelter or rescue organization. It is out of the goodness of their hearts and the love and compassion they feel for animals that they are investing the time and energy to see this through.
The estimated cost for each cat/kitten is approximately ninety dollars. This does not include food, cat litter, gas and any extras. Donations are being gratefully accepted through a chip in account set up exclusively for this particular colony. Any amout is helpful and very much appreciated.
