Our volunteers hold shelter building workshops throughout the fall and winter building inexpensive, warm shelters for homeless cats. Shelters built during the workshops are then made available to caretakers and colonies in need. The workshops are also a great venue for caretakers to network with others in the community that are performing TNR.
Since we started in 2010 our volunteers have built over 2,000 shelters for homeless cats
