City to Host Training for National Feral Cat Day Oct 13

City of Ferndale to Host Free TNR Training for National Feral Cat Day Oct 13

(City of Ferndale Press Release)

The City of Ferndale will host a free Trap-Neuter-Return training event on October 13th, 2012 from 10am to 12:30pm at the Ferndale Public Library. The event is one of many taking place across the country in honor of National Feral Cat Day, October 16.

Take advantage of this free training provided by the City and All About Animals clinic. Learn all about free-roaming, outdoor cats and how to manage them and their colony. Training will include trapping, feeding, sterilization, winter sheltering, working with neighbors, and more.

With TNR, outdoor cats are humanely trapped and brought to a veterinarian to be evaluated, spayed or neutered, and vaccinated. Cats that have undergone the procedure are eartipped – while under anesthesia a small portion of the left ear is painlessly removed for identification. TNR ends the cycle of breeding, making cats better neighbors, and improving their lives.

This is the first year that the city will engage in a National Feral Cat Day event, seeking to highlight the OAKCATS program. OAKCATS is a collaborative effort led by the Oakland Pet Adoption Center in partnership with the Michigan Pet Fund Alliance and All About Animals clinic, through the generous support of PetSmart Charities.

WHAT: National Feral Cat Day
