My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for San Antonio Feral Cat Coalition, San Antonio, TX, USA
I learned about this organization soon after discovering 4 baby kittens no more than a month old whose mother, a very young and starving feral had apparently given birth to them under the shed. This discovery was 3 days after the loss of my precious dog named Sport who had lived with me for 14.5 years. I have to mention this because of losing him, I was given 4 kittens & momma to care about. The SAFCC invited me to attend a very informative, well planned & free workshop to learn how to trap-neuter-return (TNR) feral cats that they conduct at libraries on a regular basis.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the way other volunteers band together to trap-neuter-return feral cats at a local city park that resulted in over 120 cats being spayed or neutered! Now that's real teamwork!
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
their dedication and spirit to end the senseless killing of cats that the citizens of this city had done in the past. The organization's founding members have worked diligently to create awareness of a proven solution to the overpopulation of feral cats.
Ways to make it better...
I had asked an experienced volunteer to assist me with the trapping. But as it turned out, I did it with the help of my husband and realized it wasn't so difficult after all!
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
not only continued financial funding but increased awareness in the public eye and the media to get the word out that the TNR method is the only solution to stop feral population. Another challenge is getting pet owners to spay or neuter their cats too.
