Educating Others

They might know Garfield and Grumpy Cat, but even a big cat lover might not know about community cats. That’s okay: YOU can teach them all about cats of every level of socialization and inspire them to become a cat advocate like you! But even if someone isn’t a “cat person” and never will be, educating your friends, family, and neighbors about community cats will help them understand that humane programs like Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) not only improve cats’ lives, but also the community as a whole. That’s something everyone can get behind.

Whether you’re currently conducting TNR and caring for community cats, or if you just want to help get the word out, education is a key part of helping cats and your community.
