Are you concerned about what’s being done to humanely control the overpopulation of free-roaming cats in our community and want to help? We need volunteers to help with Trap Neuter Return (TNR). Two hands-on trainings were offered by the Marion Polk Community Cat Program and its partners this summer at WHS!
For more information about the program, or volunteering, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 503-364-1542.
About the TNR Trainers
Melinda lives in Salem, and currently volunteers for Salem Friends of Felines. During the past five years, she has trapped and/or rescued at least 350 cats, as well as a few dogs. She also volunteered at Willamette Humane Society for eight years prior to SFOF involvement. "Knowing that my two amazing animal rescue partners and I are making a difference keeps me going," she says.
Rhonda lives in Salem, and started as a volunteer at the Willamette Humane Society in 2008. A year later, she began fostering cats for the Salem Friends of Felines and soon joined the SFOF TNR program. She also hosts Feral Cat Coalition of Oregon spay-neuter clinics at her family business, Salem Off-Road. The business also stores equipment and supplies for Fences for Fido. "When my kids left for college, I was lost," Rhonda says. "Then I found my calling and it has become my passion."
