Winter is Upon Us

November 28, 2015 No comments yet

It’s that time of the year when we take a break!  It is too cold out to safely spay female cats (due to shaving their belly).  Our volunteers take a much needed break to recharge their batteries.  We do a bit of fundraising, complete some grant applications and prepare for next season!  Did you know … our volunteers wash all our traps?  We then make repairs, inventory the traps and safely store them for the winter.  If you still have one of our traps, please make arrangements to return it!  They cannot be outside in the elements all winter.  We will let you know as workshops resume for what we call “kitten season.”  You may call it Spring!
