Feral Feline Project started with two women in the summer of 2007. They understood that need for spay and neutering of all outdoor cats was not being met. Local governments were still trapping and killing or doing nothing to address the feral cat issue. Caretakers were at a loss as they were unable to afford spay and neuter and if they took them to a shelter, the cats were most likely euthanized. Trap Neuter Return (TNR), allowed them to still care for the colony cats, but halt the birth of kittens. Since then, we have added on many more generous volunteers, helping every lit bit they can. Since 2007,we have TNR 'd 550 cats. We are a team of all volunteers that work hard educating, fundraising and helping citizens TNR their colonies. We educate and encourage TNR to local governments and now with the Cook County Managed Care of Feral Cats Ordinance, TNR will hopefully be more accepted from village to village. We would like to thank all the caretakers that feed, water and provide shelter for their colony cats every day. No matter the weather or what is going in their life, they always find time to take care of their colony.
