Rachel Story on Feline Rescue and Trap/Neuter/Return
This week on Renoites, it's time to talk all about cats and cat rescue! Our guest this week is Rachel Story, a feline rescue advocate who runs the local cat rescue Feral at Heart and works with the Enchanted Cat Cafe. Rachel's focus is on Trap/Neuter/Return, a strategy that allows anyone to help reduce the feral cat population in their neighborhood by trapping feral cats and having them neutered at a local low-cost clinic, then returning them back to where they were trapped.
Conor and Rachel talk about the TNR approach and why it is fundamental to helping reduce the feline population in overcrowded shelters, the difference between how animal control services respond to calls about cats vs dogs, a recent major animal hoarding case in Fallon, the Enchanted Cat Cafe and the recent trend of cat cafes to increase adoption rates, and so much more!
You can donate directly to Options Veterinary Care (Please be sure to note Rachel's name in the comment box and the funds will go directly to support her work) at this link:
