One part of Philadoptables’ mission includes helping community cats. Community cats are outdoor cats who may be feral or semi-feral but still need care and to be spayed and neutered. We were contacted by a local animal advocate about a colony of cats in Yeadon, PA – Delaware county.
With the help of local trappers, 19 cats were trapped for spay/neuter and taken to Forgotten Cats for their surgery. This process is called TNR – which stands for trap, neuter, return.
Four of those cats were kittens who were sent to rescue. One cat had a severe eye infection and the eye had to be removed. That kitty, Vixen, who is pictured above (black and white), will now live a more healthy and happy life from getting the medical care she needed. During the TNR process, cats are spayed or neutered and given vaccines.
We are thankful we can support community cats like Vixen who need our help! All made possible through partnerships and grant funding with Finance of America Cares – thank you FOAC!
