I called Toni , and she came out with her husband in March 2014 to rescue some feral cats , they rescued two, and will be back in April, or May to rescue more. Especially a mini kitty mama, and her babies ,she recently had. God bless Toni, and her husband Mike making a difference in saving lives of beautiful fur babies that are dumped off, or unwanted, they do wonderful work, and they care so much! I would recommend them to anyone who needs their help!

Toni dedicates her whole being to helping TNR; the result is lower populations in shelters, lesser chances of spreading fatal & contagious feline diseases and higher homing rates for strays.

I contacted Toni on the Erie Trap and Release Facebook page about how to make something warm for some feral cats in my area, I live in Jackson, MS. I soon began chatting with Toni everyday and hoping that I would be able to somehow repay her kindness to me. We both obviously care deeply about the welfare of animals and helping to control the pet populations to alleviate the overcrowded shelters. I was struck by Toni's knowledge of simple inexpensive yet effective solutions for helping animals. Thank you, Toni tiger paw for your wonderful heart!

Toni has helped us multiple times when we've found strays, to answering questions and helping with our own cats. Erie Trap and Relesse is a huge blessing to Erie County.and the surrounding area. She truly cares about these cats.

I have adopted 3 kittens from Erie Trap and Release, the experience was great! I love the kittens, they are happy and healthy as can be. Toni does a great job coordinating with the public, the Vet, and trapping cats that may not have chance without her devotion and hard work.

Several months ago, I contacted Toni on FB, and she was here quickly to help. My neighbor and I heard, then saw 2 fluffy kittens by a next-door-neighbors shed. We lured them thru the chain-link fence, with pureed cat food. No mother in sight. I caught them just before Toni came. She took them in, cared for them, took them to the vet, and when they were old enough, found them a loving home, together. She has a beautiful, compassionate heart, and truly saves lives everyday. I would go nowhere else to adopt, knowing the loving care she gives them, She is truly an Earth-Angel.

Erie Trap and Release provide a wonderful service for not only area feral cats, but abandoned or lost cats in the community. They helped me with a feral colony by trapping, spaying/neutering, vaccinating and the return and release back to the area. Toni and Mike are great, caring people who truly give of themselves in an effort to save the homeless and unfortunate innocent cats and kittens in our area. Thank you!

I am a facebook follower of this site. The owner will always do everything in her power
to take in, vacinate, feed and care for stray cats. She then finds appropriate homes for them.
I hope to one day adopt a cat or two from her as she is one of the only available places that does not chip the felines. I do not want a chipped pet.

This rescue is one of the best I have seen. Tony puts her heart and soul into taking care of these cats and finding them homes. I have never met her personally, but I feel like I know her well. I do believe she would do without to give these cats what they need, she has never said that but know she has. She is so deserving of so much more and is one of the kindest people. These are some blessed cats to have her on their side. I wish I could help her more than I have, someday maybe I can. God Bless her!

Not many organizations help to stop the reproduction of feral cats in our area. This is a problem that needs continued support from Erie Trap and Release.

This woman takes in all the animals she either traps or that are dropped off to her. She gets little help financially but manages to get many spayed or neutered and find home. She really could use a hand so she can continue.

This nonprofit deserves respect and support!

I contacted Toni via Facebook about a feral cat by my work that I had cared for for years. She had shelters and daily feeding. Animal control told me I was no longer allowed to feed her. I was devastated and didn't know what to do. I found erie trap and return by a blessing because I didn't know how this cat would survive. She depended on me since she was a kitten. Toni and her husband Michael came to my work right away and within an hour kitty was trapped humanely and taken to be cared for. I know Toni and Michael will make sure she has a wonderful life and she is so lucky and blessed to have them to care for her now. They were so easy to get along with and professional and surely dedicated to a wonderful cause.

I called Erie Trap and Release when I noticed a very thin mother cat with 2 very young kittens living in a brush pile in an inner city neighborhood. Erie Trap and Release helped me set traps. We trapped the mother and a random male feral cat on the first day. The two kittens were trapped two and three days later.
Toni from Erie Trap and Release has made sure that all 4 cats received veterinary care, tests, vaccines and neutering. She has given me daily updates on “my cat family”. She loves what she does and is very good at it.
I am confident that the two adorable kittens will placed in good homes. I am very happy at the outcome for all 4 cats.
