TRAP-NEUTER-RETURN Volunteers Needed!
Trap-Neuter-Return, "TNR" – is a critical component of reducing pet overpopulation, and preventing many cats and kittens from suffering. Did you know spaying one cat prevents 100 from being born? Would you like to help?
Colony Cats volunteers Jay & Paula are expert trappers and are asking for new volunteers to assist with TNR work. No experience required. EVERYTHING will be provided to you – training, guidance, equipment, bait and Spay/Neuter vouchers for use at Shelter Outreach Services of Ohio.
The traps need to be monitored, which you can do from your vehicle. Mornings are best for trapping since the SOS clinic can fix feral cats without an appointment Tues - Fri until 2pm. (If you trap any other time, you will need a place to hold the cats, such as your garage or basement.)
We are specifically targeting the 43229/43224 zip codes in the Morse Rd/161 areas
(east of I-71, north of Cooke Rd., south of I-270N)
If you'd like to help or have questions/concerns, please contact Jay and Paula at email@example.com.
If you know of anyone else who may be interested please share this information.
Don't delay – Let’s save some lives.

Thank You – FOCUS FLOORS LLC
Thank you to Focus Floors LLC for donating flooring materials for the intake side of the Adoption Center. They tore out the old floor and installed the new all in one day. We went from "icky" carpet to industrial-style laminate flooring and it's awesome!!!
