WHO WE ARE


The Stray & Feral Rescue Project (SFRP) is NOT a shelter but an aggressive TNR (trap, neuter, return/rehome) effort run by members and volunteers of local animal rescue and welfare groups and Pet Pals Northeast, Inc. and supported by some local rescue groups, local animal control, shelters and national organizations. The SFRP was created in 2003 to lower the over population of street cats, and stray/feral (wild) cats by decreasing their numbers humanely with the only proven solution used worldwide - TNR. In 2003 there was a major need for a TNR program in our area and after much research and educating ourselves The SFRP was modeled after successful TNR efforts nation and worldwide. In cooperation with other local animal rescue groups, local officials, animal control officers and veterinarians our volunteers work endlessly to stop the unnecessary misery and suffering of abandoned, lost, and stray/feral cats. Our volunteers work with and educate local residents implementing TNR projects within their neighborhoods and throughout New London County. In addition to our TNR efforts, our volunteers provide: basic care (food, water, vaccinations, shelter, etc.) on a daily basis to several large cat colonies, affordable spay/neuter services to low income individuals, and educational workshops on "Starting A TNR Project in Your Neighborhood".
The SFRP is a TNR effort and program of an all volunteer organization that receives no funding from the town, state or government and is solely supported by the community and businesses they serve. Because SFRP is an all volunteer organization 100% of donations go directly to decreasing the street cat population here in New London County. We hold various fund raisers and adoption events throughout the year to support our spay/neuter efforts and the animals we rescue.

MISSION STATEMENT


The Stray & Feral Rescue Project is dedicated to the care and protection of homeless and abandoned animals.

NEW LONDON COUNTY RESIDENTS YOUR HELP IS NEEDED!

Winter, a bitter and harsh time of the year for wildlife and homeless pets just too much ! Spring, summer and fall still so very hard for the pets that call our streets home. Wildlife battle the bumping into humans who now move closer and closer to the places they have called home. No pet should be living, dieing or born on our streets by the 1000s every year! A very important time in rescue, a time to ensure a lower kittens season, homes for friendly strays and bring quality o life to feral cats on the streets of New London County! The time we need to be out trapping and spay and neutering.Please help us to help every cry and call for help. If we don't help them no one will! Foster homes needed, masin rescuers working endlessly to help you, residents, already 16 orphans and hurt kittens have come our way and funds are limited. Only you can keep us going and getting to all in need of our and your help. Support local rescue efforts by adopting which opens our doors to more homeless pets or maybe you would consider fostering a littler of kittens or cat or simply support our efforts. We receive over 15 calls a day this time a year and we know behind every call is a pet or more in need of help. As an all non- profit organizations we rely solely on the community we serve to bring affordable programs and solutions to help residents and our communities pets in need.
It's up to you New London County residents and businesses now as to how much we can do to help you. If every resident and business would donate a few dollars a month, offer a donation jar, have a collection or save the supplies we use daily to help you we could do so very much more to help all of New London County and leave not one call for help unanswered.
It is simply up to you and it doesn't have to be this way!!!!!Please join in with communities throughout CT. and the nation and end pet over population by helping us help you implement proven solutions!
Did you know that at 2:00 a.m. every night a huge population of desperate cats and kittens start to scavenge for life on the streets of New London County? The problem is huge but controllable if we together, as a community, implement TNR (trap, neuter, return).
Please spay or sponsor a stray every year. Together we can stop this vicious cycle and make this the last generation of stray/feral cats born to the streets of New London County. We are working harder than ever with local residents to implement TNR in backyards, neighborhoods and high feral cat population areas. Everyday that goes by countless kittens are born that will never be named, owned, loved or cared for. Most will die a horrible preventable death.
We The SFRP need YOU to help implement TNR in your neighborhoods - we cannot do it alone - it is up to New London County residents, veterinarians, businesses and property owners to step up to the challenge to help us, help you. Together we can easily reduce the over population of stray/feral cats in New London County. Please contact us for more information on how to implement TNR projects, low cost spay/neutering, humane trap rentals or easy ways to support local TNR efforts.
The more community support we receive the more we can help homeless pets and local residents implement TNR throughout the streets and neighborhoods of New London County!

March 2013 Starts another busy season in rescue even with all the TNR that was done throughout the winter calls start this month looking for foster homes for orphans, hurt kittens, sick kittens and abandon cats and calls for TNR assistance by residents who just do not want to see another spring and summer of suffering in areas that concern them. With the hope of afew more vet.s on board with affordable cost we hope to double our numbers this year. So please bare with us as we hope to be able to address and help every resident with resources. And you too can start a TNR effort with local spay neuter programs and The TEAM van who lends traps and offers low cost. TEAM 1-888-FOR-TEAM. More programs on www.petfinder.com.

18 litters of kittens and their desperate parents await our help along with colony projects to be started and completed through this busy time here in New London County. The cries have been heard by local residents and businesses and the calls were made to us. Now it up to you and us !!! Please send donations to: Pet Pals NE Inc. SFRP PO Box 191, Ledyard CT. 06339-0191 if you work for a vet. or have contacts please ask for a discount rate package and make a donation of a spay or a neuter & vaccines or a vet. visit for a homeless cat or kitten in dire need.

Seeking 5 businesses

conviently located across New London County to join in personalize communtiy fund raiser to help us meet the demand. Expand our program and address our waiting list of residents and businesses who would like to join in the community effort to make New London County a safer place for people and our pets. Joining in TNR will not just bring quality of life to a last generation of feral cats, stopping the suffering of kittens being born homeless and uncared for with a 90% chance of never making it to a shelter, stopping nuisence behavior the cats create from ripping through garbage because they are starving, smelling up our yards, breaking into our basements, garages and sheds trying to keep warm or cool, stopping the howling and fighting noises at 1am, sparing us and our families from witnessing suffering of homeless pets. It also opens our shelters doors to pets in need of a new home and offers more litters of kittens and cats a chance to get off the streets and to survive. Along with saving tax dollars when our animal control officers are called in for a litter of kittens and cats hit by a cars in search of food and water. An over whelming small rescue groups budgets.....All this can go away with a community effort to assist residents willing to volunteer a few hours for a few weeks to implement TNR a proven affordable, effective and quick solution through out the community!
In 2012 and now in 2013 we have the interest & need to kick off the year & make that answer TNR our solution too. Its not like this everywhere. Help us end kittens season and the suffering we, volunteers and you witness every spring, summer and then fall and winter. And for all who are not cat lovers it will address your concerns if any too.

An average week in rescue
In 2011, 2012, 2013
Orphans, orphans, orphans from just hours old up. Hand raisied by two wonderful volunteers. In just one week our attention was brought to 10 day old babies found on a towle in a local park just inches from the road. Thankfully a resident walking her dog came upon them, made the calls and they are are growing and even have some mom time from one of our rescued moms. Rain brings frantic homeless mother cats wandering with their tiny kittens looking for a safe place out of the rain. Some get dropped in yards and driveways other are even dropped at residents door steps. We are called either helping with supplies and information so they can foster them. However the tiny ones make it to us where years of exp. and the dedication to care and feed them hourly by our director. To date 38 under a week old since June not to metion all the other tiny one. Thanks you community for making that very important call for the kitten. Never a mom or sibling left behind.-
By working together with FOFF Inc, Pet Pals Inc. AWL Inc. Pet Connections, Ct. Humane Soc. and other groups when able we are starting to model an aggressive TNR effort. With the help & discounts of supporters of TNR Niantic animal hospital, Clark vet. hospital, TEAM, Cat Hospital and local vet. tech.s we are setting the stage for an aggressive TNR effort here in new London County. Please join us, Spread the word that just a few dollars form all concerned residents and businesses we too are joining in a national TNR effort. More info on TNR and how it benefits not just the homeless animal but the whole community and it resources at www.alleycat/org
We have rescued, rehabbed, found shelter for and fostering to date: 134 kittens many orphans found by local residents. Gone through over 40 pounds of kitten formula.
Many calls for info. on local resources, people seeing uncared for feral cats & kittens, help with vet. care, help with food, flea products & bombs, cat supplies and more. We try and do respond to each call, if we can not help we try our best to get them the help they or the pets they are trying to help need. We have wonderful exp. volunteers who are wiling & waiting to help other residents & businesses start TNR efforts. However we are held back many times on starting or assisting residents with TNR projects by vet.s involved & of funding. This means huge increase in projects.
Dr. Clark & staff of Clark vet. hospital in Old Lyme support community betterment efforts by assisting with spay & neutering and giving medical attention at a great discount to over 400 cats & 100s of kittens in 2009.
26 calls for help with kittens found. Many have been turned away by rescue groups & shelters because they are full, kittens are sick, too young, too old, not social etc. because of your support & dedicated exp. volunteers/local residents taking the time out of their busy lives to lend a hand. Not all areas in CT. have this problem each spring & summer. TNR saves lives, opens shelters, rescue groups & animal controls doors.
5 calls about hurt cats. Including a wee kitten in Jewitt City who wandered off a near by farm. The kitten seemed to know humans bring help and care why so many humans seem to think they can care for themselves. Our dedicated vet. Dr. Clark mentioned the kitten would not have survived more then a few more hours. Now safe and recovering.
2 residents needing help with supplies"KMR milk replacer, litter, kittens food, mini litter boxes" & the special info. our infant foster homes have to raise orphans.
3 cats found sick by passer byers who took the time to try and get help. Volunteer vet. tech.s assist with testing, consulting with their vet.s to get the cats the help they need. two of the good sams are fostering them while they recover, take med.s and settle back into a life as a pet.
Cat found sitting on porch of abandon or foreclosed home. We found her declawed, covered in ticks, very scared and rumor has it she has been waiting there for them 4 months.
Call from new homeowner about previous owners cat trying to break in. After finally trapping the cat & contacting her owner we found they have been looking for her for over 7 months. The 17 year old cat went missing through the confusion of moving. They are elated and will be coming from out of state to pick her up. She was rescued by them 17 years ago from a construction site at 7 month old starved to the size of a 3 month old kitten.
5 calls from residents needing help with flea products for the pets & homes.
5 more residents put on waiting list for TNR projects while funding and vet. time secured. Joining a huge list of residents & areas.
4 phone calls about a litter of friendly kittens at parking lot at exit 92 screaming for help. After a week of searching no mother to be found.
Foster homes and volunteers raising 14 kittens under 5 weeks old. One just hours old when she was brought to us.

HANDFULS OF KITTENS FOUND
Residents & businesses through out the area bring attention to our most desperate pets, the ones that were born & call our streets & neighborhoods home. Because of volunteers working everyday, assisting other residents, fostering, nurturing, guiding residents, transporting & promoting proven solutions to ending felines over population many lives are saved & changed. Along with stopping it from happening again, area to area.
The smallest just hours old, all fighting for life & a chance that only you can give them, a home. Thanks to supporters of local rescue these chances they will have. The 68 kittens volunteers rescued in since April will have that chance because of our presence within the community.

CATS ARE JUST BIG KITTENS!
Our foster homes and streets have wonderful friendly cats "7 mon.s to 3 years" that have found themselves homeless and alone on the streets of New London County many unaltered and struggling to keep their kittens alive. Some have been found and rescued by our dedicated volunteers and local residents. Their kittens have found their forever homes however many of their moms are still here waiting for theres. Many many more friendly homeless cats need our help and many more this coming spring and summer please help us help them by adopting a rescue cat or two and which opens our foster homes and area shelters doors to more in need of our help!
If you are interested in adopting or fostering we have cats ranging in age from a few days old to adult cats. Adopting and/or fostering enables our volunteers to continue their much needed and in demand rescue efforts. Fostering a cat that has seen more pain and suffering then any person or pet should ever see, so it may take a few weeks to trust and learn again that people care. A very fulfilling experience and opens doors only fostering can do, bring her/ him a home of their very own.

IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY!!!
TNR projects continuously remind us why we are needed and why we need to educate and help residents start TNR projects throughout New London County. On a daily basis our volunteers rescue kittens with severe eye infections, many injuries, mother cats to weak from hunger to care for their young. Kittens dying from flea or parasite infestation. These kittens/cats are pets not wild animals and cannot live without human intervention and care. Please spread the word about TNR and our efforts. Homeless street cats rely on New London County residents and rescue groups to end their suffering.
We have the solution and our volunteers are out there day and night implementing TNR projects and educating throughout New London County. TNR requires a combined effort from the residents of New London County - without you we cannot manage the overpopulation problem. Please consider joining in with other New London County residents and stop this unnecessary suffering, misery and problems surrounding our street cat population.
A New London neighborhood takes control of their street cat population!
A New London neighborhood puts the TNR solution to work for their stray cat problem. After contacting "SFRP" about a litter of kittens and finding out about TNR they have now spayed/neutered nine cats that roam their neighborhood. Our volunteers helped by removing the kittens for adoption and offering low cost spay and neutering. In a few weeks after a neighborhood collection more cats will be spayed and neutered. We are seeing a major effort by residents throughout the New London County area to manage the stray cat population. After showing residents in the L&M Hospital area how to implement TNR they began trapping the stray/feral cats in their backyards and to date have TNR'd over 28 cats and saved many many kittens. All kittens were removed by our volunteers and placed for adoption. ALL these kittens and cats were removed from TWO backyards. We are proud of this combined effort between our group and the residents who decided to take control of the stray cat population and stop the misery and suffering of the cats living in their yards. WE have the solution (TNR) - now we need to get together as a community and put the solution to work.
UPDATE: Spring 2009 two litters reported safe & homed along with their 2 friendly abandon mothers. One unlatered friendly male found, altered & rehomed. The neighborhood took care of the siituation now that they are aware of local resources & educated on TNR.
