TNR?
Regardless of views pro or con on TNR, the new CD/DVD combo “Effectively Managing Feral Cats” published by the HSUS, including practical techniques pioneered by “Neighborhood Cats” (the NYC grass roots group & recognized experts on these issues) has much to offer anyone wrestling with this issue. At $9.99, it is a unique gift for animal lover, library, health dept, ACO, new or experienced feral cat caregiver, veterinarian, veterinary tech or student.

Michelson Offers $75 MILLION
The Found Animals Foundation & the Alliance for Contraception in Cats & Dogs announced The Michelson Prize in Reproductive Biology in October. This international competition is aimed at solving pet overpopulation, encouraging researchers from many fields to take on the challenge of non-surgical pet sterilization. “Found Animals” is a 501(c)3, formed by inventor & entrepreneur Dr. Gary Michelson, one of Forbes 400 Richest Americans. For those who have dreamed of a b/millionaire devoting his/her $’s to this cause, maybe dreams really can come true!

“We’re killing millions of pets annually in the U.S. for the simple lack of a home and sterilization programs are the only viable solution.”
Dr. Gary Michelson

Until Then......
The feral cat raiding a garbage can or the stray dog looking for a place to have her puppies know nothing of the financial turmoil now underway. Through good times & bad, animals depend on people to do the right thing....spay/neuter is probably the single most important “right thing” that we can do. Every single spay neuter prevents a whole chain of suffering.
