Cortes Cat Rescue is in the process of applying for a SPCA Animal Spay & Neuter Grant for the upcoming year. The grant, if successful, will provide money towards the spay and neutering of "free roaming" cats, defined as "neighbourhood or community-fed cats, abandoned cats, unfriendly or feral cats living in colonies, where there are one or more caretakers (ie, feeders)." To complete this application, we need to establish an estimate of the current number of free-roaming cats living on Cortes and the names of anyone who might be considered a 'caretaker.' Your help in this would be greatly appreciated: do you know of any cat or groups of cats fitting the above description? If so, please contact Ian or Anne-Lise at 935-8568. The deadline for the grant submission is (of course) looming and all or any information will help us help the cats (and birds). Thanks.
