Alley Cat Allies Workshops

Ongoing!
Feral cats are outdoor cats that are healthy but unsocialized to humans and therefore unadoptable as pets. Our workshops provide information on how to stop the cycle of breeding with Trap-Neuter-Return – the only recognized humane and effective method of stabilizing feral cat populations. The workshops provide information on building inexpensive shelters and a short video presentation gives a step-by-step guide for how to help cats. Learn how to humanely trap outdoor cats and how to safely deter cats from where they are not wanted. Join us to network and meet others who are helping cats.
