- Nov 4, 2009Kathy,
I have my own kitty rescue 501c3 here in Spring Green. Mew Haven, Inc. I
have 2 other women working with me. One of them can foster & is full up
right now, as am I. We practice TNR for sure & have helped out a lot of
people who would not have been able to neuter/spay/vaccinate their cats
without our help. We have a vet here with an excellent Farm Cat program
& we have used it extensively for TNR of farm cats & strays who would
not otherwise have been neutered or spayed. We've been lucky to in
rehoming cats & kittens, through our own contacts & also with the help
of some of the cat rescue groups in Madison.
I doubt that there are any official TNR programs in the villages & small
towns around here in south central WI. Most of those that are in effect
are the work of individuals like myself & others who primarily finance
them out of pocket or with the help of donations - for which we tap
friends & relatives on a regular basis!
