ALLEY CAT ALLIES OFFERS FREE WORKSHOPS: HOW TO HELP COMMUNITY CATS

CHICAGO — Alley Cat Allies and Tree House Animal Foundation host monthly free workshops at four locations in Chicago to provide information for residents who want to help the city’s stray and feral cat population.

The workshops provide information on how to create a safety net for the cats and stop the cycle of breeding. Learn how to reduce the population of outdoor cats with Trap-Neuter-Return and network with other caregivers.

Through public education, awareness campaigns, community organizing, and partnerships with leading animal protection agencies and shelters, Alley Cat Allies hopes to bring Trap-Neuter-Return to the forefront of public awareness in Chicago.
