Community Cat Advocats Receives a $1,000 SpayVA Grant from the Virginia Federation of Humane Societies!
Community Cat Advocats was thrilled to receive a $1,000 SpayVA grant at the Virginia Federation of Humane Societies Conference in Charlottesville, VA!
The funds will spent to TNVR twenty-two cats in targeted colonies in the downtown area of Winchester VA. This area has historically been an area of concern due to the population of community cats and CCA has intiatied a program to do targeted TNVR in the colonies in order to improve the lives of the cats and eventually reduce their numbers. Thank you, VFHS, for helping us get this initiative started!
Community Cat Advocats hosts the National Kitten Coalition's "Caring for Kittens" workshop
Community Cat Advocats was delighted to be able to offer this three-hour workshop, presented by the National Kitten Coalition.
Kitten fosters, community cat caregivers, shelter workers and others who care about kittens attended this workshop and received an amazing wealth of information about caring for very young kittens and helping increase their survival rates. Presenters Rosemarie Crawford and Kierianne Hansen talked about daily care and feeding bottle kittens, the weaning process and challenges, performing a basic kitten exam, early recognition of illness, quarantine periods when one takes in a kitten, the importance of daily weight checks and disease prevention and sanitation.
A Maddie's Fund grant enabled the National Kitten Coalition to offer this workshop free of charge.
