Cats from the colony are trapped, with the eventual hope of going to a forever home.

CATastrophe group grateful for community support

Donations making a huge difference toward reducing feral cat colony

The members of CATastrophe would like to thank the community for opening their hearts and their generous donations for the colony of cats that we support.

We’ve seen great progress for the short time that this colony has been given the needed attention.

Our ongoing effort is to feed, trap, spay and neuter and to make sure that these cats are healthy.

Our goal is to reduce the number of cats living in this colony and to find forever homes for the ones that we can.

For those of you that would like to read an interesting article about cats and wildlife, go to the following link: https://www.alleycat.org/resources/humans-the-number-one-threat-to-wildlife and download the pdf.

The Website is AlleyCat Allies Research and the article is Humans: The Number One Threat to Wildlife.

Food and cash donations can be dropped off at Downtown Auto, 9793 Chemainus Rd., 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday.

Donations can also be picked up at homes or businesses by sending an email to chemainuscatastrophe@gmail.com or a message through Facebook to @chemainuscatastrophe.

Tax receipts can be issued for those who’d like them for donations of $20 or more.

With continued support from donations of cat food and funds, we are optimistic that we will reach our goal.

Watch for our Spring fundraiser.

CATastrophe …

for the well being of cats
