Illinois Department Of Natural Resources Changes Policy
The Illinois Department of Natural Resources, who monitors our wildlife here in Illinois, in charge of hunting and fishing licenses and so much more, no longer opposes "trap-neuter-return" feral cat programs on land now owned, managed or leased by the agency. IDNR cares for the parks and museums, and will no longer be discouraging the use of TNR – a potentially huge impact on the future of feral cats in Illinois.
Fantastic Garage Sale – June 26th!
No TNR On 6/17
Taking the week off, so do not trap from 6/11 to 6/21 unless you intend to keep them at your house! Hoping to work a few more weeks off into this year, cross your fingers!
13,000 Cats in 2021 Looks Possible!
On 6/10 we sent 27 cats to DCAS, 7 ferals and 20 friendlies, with 12 males and 15 females. The kittens born this Spring are already old enough for neutering! Our fosters are doing a great job on these kittens! They were also able to do the dental on the cat from the previous week – he is in much less pain. These neuters bring us to 51 for the month of June, 286 for the year and 12,735 since our beginnings in 2007. We neutered a total of 740 cats last year, we are well on our way to matching that! Our thanks to everyone who makes this possible!
