ATLANTIC COUNTY, N.J. – Friday, March 2, 2018 – Alley Cat Allies is continuing its efforts to help cats in Atlantic County by offering a fourth workshop in a series that is empowering owners and caregivers to give the county’s cats the best care possible.

This fourth workshop, titled “Fundamentals of Fundraising,” will teach community members how they can raise money to help support Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) and community cat colony care. Alice Burton, Alley Cat Allies’ associate director of animal shelter and animal control engagement, will explain how to successfully generate more donations, whether by a one-person operation or a group of volunteers. The workshop will also offer suggestions on how to recruit volunteers, improve customer service and strengthen relationships with donors.

Details of the event are as follows:

What: “Fundamentals of Fundraising” workshop, presented by Alley Cat Allies

When: March 6, 2018 from 6 – 8 p.m.

Where: Atlantic County Public Library, Hammonton Branch, 451 South Egg Harbor Rd., Hammonton, N.J. 08037

Reservations: Recommended but not required. RSVP to boardwalk@alleycat.org.

Recent workshops from Alley Cat Allies in Atlantic County have covered topics including how to save rescued unweaned kittens, TNR for community cats, and CPR for cats and dogs.

At the March 6 workshop, Burton will also explain why TNR is the only humane and effective approach to outdoor cat populations. As good public policy, it effectively and humanely manages the community cat population, reduces shelter intake and “euthanasia” numbers, and reduces calls to animal control agencies, saving taxpayer dollars in the process.

Alley Cat Allies, the global engine of change for cats, has a long history of dedication to the people and cats of Atlantic County. In addition to recent workshops, the Alley Cat Allies Boardwalk Cats Project is part of an Atlantic City-endorsed Trap-Neuter-Return program for community cats that is a national model.
