Feral cats in Delta and other towns throughout the county are drawing a lot of attention these days, and everyone seems to be asking the same question: "What is being done?" We are looking for a few people or organizations more interested in asking "How can we help?" to aid in developing a communit-wide solution.
CAWS (Delta County Citizens for Animal Welfare and Shelter) has been conducting trap, neuter, return (TNR) of feral cats for seven years. From November 2011 to February 2012, we provided TNR services to 64 cats in Delta County. This was accomplished through a generous funding partnership with End of the Trail Horse Rescue in Olathe. CAWS is fortunate to have dedicated trappers who will hit the street the moment funding is available, but the trouble is, funding for small scale TNR programs is hard to come by. To become eligible for large TNR grants we need to evolve our current program into something that can make a lasting and measurable impact in our communities.
