When: 3:00pm – 5:00pm

Attendees will be provided with tips on how to improve communication with neighbours, including ways to help them understand the needs of community cats and benefits of Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). Advice for turning around hostile situations will also be included.

Announcing: Merger with UCR

 

Dear Friends TFCP & Supporters,

Toronto Feral Cat Project and Urban Cat Relief are very excited to announce our intent to merge in the upcoming months!

Our two groups will unite to form a stronger alliance dedicated to helping people through education, advocacy, and participation to make a difference in the lives of community cats (feral, stray and free-roaming).

We recognize the fundamental need for collaboration, and joining resources provides us with the opportunity to strengthen the impact that each group has made as individual entities.

We are in the early stages of our transition and look forward to defining our Mission, Vision and future plans in the coming months. Please stay tuned!
