"PEACE, LOVE, TNR"
National Feral Cat Day is October 16th. In celebration and to raise awareness we're doing an online t-shirt fundraiser.
Feral cats need more than a bowl of food. Trap, Neuter, Return – it works! By wearing this t-shirt you'll help raise awareness about the importance of TNR.
Click here to purchase this cute tee and show your support for TNR! Funds raised go to spay & neuter feral cats in Central Ohio.
For information and resources about Feral Cats and TNR, click here to visit our "How We Help" page. There you'll find information, and links to articles and TNR resources.

October Volunteer of the Month:
We love our volunteers! They give so much to help
us, so we're giving them a big "shout-out" with our Volunteer of the Month feature.
Introducing our October Volunteer of the Month –
Linda Lehner. What she likes best about volunteering with Colony Cats is taking care of the cats to help them find a forever home.
Linda's advice for new Colony Cats volunteers is that nothing is more rewarding than the look in the cats' eyes after you clean their cages and give them fresh water and food. Click here to read more and learn about Linda.

PREVENT MORE. FIX AT MONTH FOUR.
Cats and dogs can get pregnant much sooner than you think. 50% of all pets born are accidents. Spay or neuter your pet at four months old to help prevent those accidents and save millions from being killed in shelters each year. Visit fixatfour.com for more information.
Colony Cats is excited to announce that we are a network partner of Best Friends Animal Society. Best Friends believes that collaboration with local pet shelters and animal rescue organizations – the people who know their communities best – is key to ending the killing in America’s shelters.
