Culture on the Cheap
Upcoming Event for Cat Lovers: Trap-Neuter-Return Workshop
Given the recent (and rightful) controversy surrounding the ouster of a feral cat colony at J.F.K., I feel compelled to let everyone know a Trap-Neuter-Return workshop will be conducted right here in the Borough of Kings this weekend. Here are the deets per Slope Street Cats:
The three-hour training class is regularly offered twice a month and attendance provides NYC residents with access to free services, including spay/neuter, trap rental, volunteer assistance and more. The workshops are part of the NYC Feral Cat Initiative, a program of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals that is administered by Neighborhood Cats…
If you have been meaning to take the Trap-Neuter-Return certification class but haven’t gotten around to making it to 92nd Street in Manhattan, please note that there will be one on November 3rd in Brooklyn! I will be co-teaching the Neighborhood Cats class with another SSC board member. It’s free but please RSVP to Neighborhood Cats at the email address below.
Attendance certifies you to use the free spay/neuter services provided by the ASPCA and the Humane Society for feral cats and enables you to borrow traps from both the Neighborhood Cats and Slope Street Cats’ trap banks.
WHAT: Trap Neuter and Release Workshop
WHEN: November 3, 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
WHERE: Park Slope Food Coop
782 Union Street
Brooklyn, New York 11215
WHY: Because it is a much more humane and effective means of controlling a feral cat population than kill shelters.
HOW (to RSVP): headcat (at) neighborhoodcats (dot) org
