An easy recovery after neutering. Can you tell Sunny's left ear has been ear-tipped?
| Community Cat Care is a non-profit organization established in June of 2000. We are a Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) program.|
The feral cats are trapped, taken to local vets and spayed or neutered. While at the clinic, they are given a "well exam" by a licensed veterinarian. We do this while they are sedated, and before surgery to make sure they are healthy.
Also, during the exam, they are vaccinated for rabies and distemper. Lastly, the cats are ear-tipped. Ear tipping is done on the very tip of one ear in an even, straight line. We do this so that in a colony the unaltered cats can easily be distinguished from the ones that are sterilized.
In an average year, Community Cat Care will spay/neuter 575 cats. That is almost 50 cats per month!
CCC is composed entirely of caring and motivated volunteers in the Grand Junction, Colorado area. The volunteers concentrate their efforts on fundraising and facilitating the TNR program in our community. Our past fundraising efforts have included selling cookie dough and donuts, hosting bake sales and yard sales and participating in local festivals. We are currently focusing on our famous yard sales, and promoting future online fund drives and products. Our biggest fundraiser for the year is our annual Fur Ball, which includes music, dancing, and hors d'oeuvres, and our fabulous silent auction. Tickets available online!
We also need to give credit to the wonderful people in our valley that feed the colonies of feral cats. The caretakers are carefully screened to assure that the basic needs of food, water and shelter are provided.
