F A Q

 

1) Can you help with spay and neuter assistance for feral and stray cats

Yes

  • Determine if the cats in question are truly feral or just your neighbor's annoying pet.

  • Decide who will care for (feed) the cats once they are trapped, neutered, and returned to you?

  • Try to determine if the area you are feeding is safe for the cats.

  • We will NOT trap or assist you in trapping cats just because you want them gone.

  • We will NOT trap or assist in the trapping of cats so you can take them to a shelter. Un-socialized cats taken to a shelter are killed.

 

2) I Found a stray cat and want to find a home for it can you help 

Yes

  • We will add them to our foster intake list for a foster home if the cat is friendly and adoptable.

  • We are an all volunteer organization with NO shelter so we can only take in what we have room for and we must rely on our foster homes to care for the cats. 

 

3) Want help trapping and relocating feral cats

  • We will help you trap and fix the cats but we do not relocate cats.

  • We have a Trap Neuter Return policy which offers us fixing the cat at our expense and returning it to the same location to someone who will feed it. This is the proven solution for dealing with feral cats. It stops breeding and is humane. 

  • We can provide traps and possibly someone to help you.  Sometimes we have barn homes to relocate to but this is not a given or a promise. 

  • You be willing to feed the cats when they return.

 

4) Want help relocating feral or stray cat because they are killing birds 

  • The cat is probably hungry so if you would feed it it would probably not kill the birds. Statistically, cats don’t kill that many birds although I know that is not the answer you’re looking for. We can not relocate the cat but we can fix the cat so it won't reproduce.

  • We have a Trap Neuter Return policy which offers us fixing the cat at our expense and returning it to the same location to someone who will feed it. This is the proven solution for dealing with feral cats. It stops breeding and is humane.

 

5) I would like to give you a mom with kittens can you help 

Yes

  • We do take in moms and kittens from the public on a limited basis. Because we are a no- kill organization with no shelter we can only take in what we have room for in foster homes.

  • We must have all of the kittens and the MOM in the group . We are trying to stop pet over-population and want all of the animals so they can be altered. If friends or family would like one of the cats, they can still adopt them through us. If they would like to keep mom or one of the kittens the mom or kitten will need to be altered first and then proof must be shown at the time of the intake appointment. We do not make exceptions.

  • Each cat and kitten will cost us to care for and prepare for adoption.  We will test, vaccinate, spay or neuter, and treat for worms, fleas.  This will ensure that the cat or kittens will not reproduce and add to the pet overpopulation problem.

 

6) Will you take my pet

No

  • Because we are such a small organization with no shelter we are unable to take in people’s pets because we physically have no where to keep them. Our mission is to assist with the cat overpopulation of stray and feral cats. See our Resources page for other alternative.

7) Lost a cat

  • We suggest that you put up posters around the neighborhood and let your neighbors know. Also post the lost cat on Gorge.net with photo. The radio stations also have a lost and found segment and you can call them and ask them to announce it on the radio. PROD also has a lost and found section on their webpage go to www.proddogs.org 541-387-DOGS

  • We will distribute posters to our network. Send a picture of the cat to us through email and include a description, long or short hair and any distinguishing marks, including the area the cat was lost and a contact number.

 

8) Want to adopt a cat

We have an application on the webpage that we ask you to fill out for pre approval.  We do this to insure a good match for both the cat and the adopter and as a courtesy to our foster homes. Once the application is approved we will set up the meet and greet with the foster home. 

 

7) Emergency injured animal

  • The fastest response will most often come from your veterinarian. But email us, too.  We will try to help.
