On “Rescue Feature Friday” we highlight one of our amazing partners so that you can learn more about the nonprofits that work so hard every day to end animal homelessness and suffering.
Today, we’re excited to feature Cape Kitty Rescue! With funding from our grant, they are able to help spay and neuter the cats in their program.
Keep reading on to learn about the work they do #ForTheAnimals!
> What is the mission of Cape Kitty Rescue?
Our primary mission remains to control the feral cat population of Cape Royale using the humane method of Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) for adult cats and the rescue and removal of feral kittens to loving homes. preferably outside the Cape. However, particularly in the past year, we have become aware of an increasing need to prevent cats from becoming feral by reaching out to cat owners who do not spay or neuter their cats but rather discard them or allow them and/or their offspring to run free and reproduce.
> When was your organization established?
> How did you become involved in your organization and what is your current role?
Patricia Hitt, Publicity and Secretary – My friend was getting a lot of negative feedback about our feral cat colony. I felt that becoming a 501c3 would legitimize our great work, and I became involved and obtained our nonprofit status. It worked!
> Do you work with your organization as a paid or volunteer, full-time or part-time member?
We have no paid members
> What keeps you motivated to continue your work?
Sometimes there is just nobody else for these babies.
> What are you most proud of accomplishing?
Being able to write grants that enable us to TNR cats and care for and find homes for our babes.
> What is something about your organization that the average person might not know?
We do more than feed cats.
> Describe your vision for the future of animal welfare in Greater Houston.
People will no longer throw away animals and there will be no more homeless kittens and thrown away dogs.
