Spay & Neuter Update: Catnappers and TNR in Georgia

After a very successful year in 2008, Saving Shelter Pets is continuing its partnership with TNR group, Catnappers, for 2009 to provide spay & neuter surgeries to feral cats in southwestern Georgia. Catnappers is a very small group of volunteers who donate their time to trap feral cats and bring them to the local vet for spay/neuter surgeries, and additional medical treatment if needed.

Thanks to the donations of our generous supporters, Saving Shelter Pets has been able to provide over $1,200 in funding to Catnappers in the past year and a half to help them continue their important efforts in controlling the feral cat population.

So far for 2009, Catnappers has spayed/neutered 180 cats!

If you are in southwestern Georgia and would like to help this great cause, please visit the Catnapper website for more information. They are always in need of items such as towels, sheets, outdoor building materials for shelters, cat carriers, and more.

The pictures below were taken by Catnappers during a recent TNR effort involving a hoarding case. There were over 40 cats on the property (many of which were skinny and ill) and numerous other animals including goats, cows, dogs, and horses. A huge thank you to Catnappers for all their hard work & dedication to the homeless kitties in Georgia! :)

About Saving Shelter Pets:
Saving Shelter Pets (SSP) strives to eliminate euthanasia as a method of population control for homeless companion animals, by providing no-kill alternative solutions and pro-actively addressing the problem of pet overpopulation.

SSP is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization with supporters nationwide. Please see our FAQs for more information.

NOTE: The animals pictured in this or any other message are NOT available for adoption. We do not have the resources to properly screen adoptive homes. We send our dogs and cats to pre-approved no-kill rescues in the Northeast, and these rescues will then adopt them into wonderful forever homes.
