October is National Feral Cat Month, and our Nashville Paw Foundation is proud to have partnered with the Pet Community Center (PCC), Value Vet and other local partners to kick off the celebration by spaying and neutering 100 community cats on September 30. Through funds raised at our annual Art for Animals, our foundation was able to provide $3,000 in funding to help make this mass sterilization possible.
Meanwhile, volunteers through PCC’s “Feline Fix” program worked to schedule the trapping and transportation for cats across Middle Tennessee, networking with members of the community to find feral cat colonies with large numbers of unaltered cats. Post-surgery, the cats were cared for by volunteers until they were ready to be released back into their habitat.
