CONGRATULATIONS TO HCP DIRECTOR DEBRA LABRUZZO -- RECIPIENT OF THE DAKIN PIONEER HUMANE SOCIETY'S LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD!

JUNE IS ADOPT A SHELTER CAT MONTH!! Although the summer months have passed, shelters and rescues are overflowing -- we especially encourage you to open your home and heart to a fabulous feline in search of a forever home. We promise your efforts will be greatly rewarded!

NOVEMBER IS "ADOPT A SENIOR PET MONTH"!! November -- or any time of year -- is always a great time to consider adopting a mature feline family member.

CELEBRATE "NATIONAL FERAL CAT DAY" IN OCTOBER!! October 16th is National Feral Cat Day! Please continue to support HCP in our year round efforts to eliminate the free roaming cat overpopulation in a responsible, humane way. Your contribution helps feral cats live safer, healthier lives by providing us with supplies to give our volunteers and enable us to to spread the word about TNR to policymakers, humane societies, animal control agencies, veterinarians, and government officials, as well as the general public.

FOSTER HOMES URGENTLY NEEDED!! Now more than ever we are in need of families willing to open their home to a cat in need. Foster care is typically short term -- from a few weeks to a few months. If interested, please e-mail homelesscatproject@verizon.net for more information.

The Homeless Cat Project would like to extend it's gratitude and appreciation to all participating veterinarians and veterinary staff for their continued support and wonderful medical care provided to our cats in need. If any veterinary facility is interested in providing assistance to our program, please e-mail homelesscatproject@verizon.net for further information.

The Homeless Cat Project is an all volunteer committee of New England Animal Action, Inc. HCP is a non-profit (501(c)3) organization that is funded through donations by animal lovers like yourself. Your tax-deductible financial support will help us to continue our efforts. HCP has spayed or neutered approximately 10,000 free-roaming cats in the greater Springfield area but many more cats await sterilization. Help us prevent the births of unwanted kittens by making a donation through PayPal or mailing your contribution to the Homeless Cat Project, P.O. Box 80256, Springfiield, MA 01138. To obtain a copy of our quarterly newsletter, Cat Colony Courier, please email homelesscatproject@verizon.net. Thank you for caring!

Who We Are:

The mission of the Homeless Cat Project (HCP), completely staffed by volunteers, is to reduce the number of free-roaming cats by establishing colonies of spayed/neutered, vaccinated felines in appropriate settings. HCP is an approved rescue by the MA Department of Agriculture. Volunteers frequently discover very friendly cats who were apparently abandoned. These cats are placed in HCP's limited foster care program until loving, permanent homes can be found. All adoptable HCP cats are tested for FIV and FeLV, checked for worms, fleas and mites, vaccinated, spayed or neutered and evaluated for temperament prior to placement. Fostering expenses are paid for by volunteers.

Adopting a Feline Friend:

All adoptions are by appointment only. Potential adopters are screened so that we may determine appropriate feline-human matches. All our cats receive full medical, including testing for feline viruses, vaccinations and spay/neuter. A $75.00 adoption donation is requested to assist us in covering veterinary expenses for care that each cat has received. Please e-mail homelesscatproject@verizon.net to request an adoption application and learn more about our adoption policies and procedures. Thank you for your interest!

Wish List:

In addition to monetary donations, the Homeless Cat Project seeks volunteers and foster homes, along with the following items: gas cards, cat food, cat litter, carriers and crates, humane traps, small outdoor structures (such as dog houses) that can be used as shelters, blankets and towels. Thank you for your support!
