Bridge Funding — Start Date: June 2015 — End Date: September 2016Taos New Mexico is known for its beautiful mountains and fine art galleries — but if you visit and look a bit closer, you’ll see the beauty of its naturally-occurring cat colonies too. And there’s good reason for this as Taos feral cats have an organization — Taos Feral Feline Friends — dedicated to their care by mentoring their in-place caregivers and providing them with free spay/neuter assistance to limit the size of their colonies.
In addition — when they find feral cats that are living at risk because of injury, illness or inappropriate location, they bring them to their cage-free casita shelter to sanctuary — or place as barn cats — depending on the cat.
To top this off — they even provide free spay/neuter, vaccinations and viral testing for stray cats that compassionate people find on the street and want to make their pets.
Their spay/neuter programs are normally funded by Petsmart and our participation simply bridged between their 2015 and 2016 grants. A total of 169 cats were fixed during our partnership.
