A local organization is reaching out to the community for help. The Spencerville TNR (Trap, Neuter and Release/Relocate) Stray Cats Project is short on cat food, litter and monetary donations.
Founder Cindy Cere started the project last year when she noticed a growing number of stray cats in Spencerville.
Cere takes in between 30 and 40 cats and kittens every month. Spencerville TNR also facilitates the sterilization of barn cats and pets people can’t afford to fix.
Spencerville TNR serves Brockville, Prescott, Cardinal and Kemptville. The organization goes through six pounds of kitten food each week and needs to raise about $4,000 a month to pay for veterinary services.
Cere reminds people to neuter their cats early in the year to prevent kittens being born in the spring and fall.
The cats are adopted out after living with foster families. Feral cats are given away to farmers through a partnership with Barn Buddies in Ottawa. For more information or to donate, contact Cere directly by emailing [email protected].
