Feral Cat Friends- This all volunteer organization offers assistance with Trap-Neuter-Return and feral cat resources.  Cats who have lived their lives predominantly outdoors often do not fair well being relocated or brought into homes. Because of this they face euthanasia in a shelter setting.  Feral Cat Friends promotes trapping the cats, having them spayed or neutered, and then releasing them back into the locations where they already have food and shelter to live out their lives.  This tactic leads to a decrease in stray cat numbers in the community, less nuisance issues with cats, and frees up resources for the Animal Shelter., or
