Spotted On Manhattan Avenue: TNR Workshop
Filed under: Crazy Cat Lady, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, Urban Fur
Anyone who has read this site for any appreciable period of time knows that I have a fondness for cats. Conversely, a significant amount of my readership are animal lovers of one stripe or another. One question I am often asked about the stray cat problem in Greenpoint (and beyond) is:
How can I help?
The following is a start.
On Saturday, May 8, starting at noon Greenpoint’s own Word Books will be hosting a Trap Neuter and Return Workshop. Among the numerous topics to be covered are:
- How to handle and trap feral cats
- Arranging veterinary care
- How to set up and maintain a feral cat colony
- Raising awareness about the various resources available to you in creating and maintaining a feral cat colony
Upon completing this workshop attendees will be TNR certified and as such will have access to low cost spay and neutering services, traps and equipment. If you are concerned about feline overpopulation in your community and to do something about it I strongly advise you attend this work shop. You can register for this via email at: lois (at) nycferalcat (dot) org (be sure to indicate Brooklyn TNR Workshop in the subject line) or telephone at (212) 662 – 5761.
