We sure have been busy both in WI and MN. Our MN people have saved a lot
of cats this last year. We have rescued a lot of kittens and a fair
number of cats, and did a lot of TNR over there, mostly in the St Paul
area. There were a lot of cats that were abandoned in apartments this
last year. We managed to find places for them to go. There were a lot of
cats that had to find new homes when owners had to move or owners died,
so we found places for them. They all got the best in vet care that we
could afford, all were spayed and neutered if they were not already. We
rehomed quite a few, mostly kittens as they are so hard to resist. We
helped a number of people get their pets spayed or neutered and got a
few family pets vet care that they couldn't afford, such as the little
siamese cat that broke a hip. We also lost a couple as we ran up against
an upper respiratory disease that was deadly to kittens. We saved as
many of them as we could, but it's so hard when you just can't help even
with the best in veterinary care behind you.
Now we have kitten season coming soon. We are already seeing cats in
heat, so it won't be long. At least we know none of the cats we spayed
last year or in previous years will be adding more kittens to the mix!

We are busy trying to redo our website here and we hope to have our
Stray Feral adoptable cats listed, as well as the CatTown cats, within
the next week. There has been so much to do, working out details of our
new partnership, and so much for us to learn about! We are getting
things done, bit by bit, while keeping up with all the cats we needed to
get spayed and neutered in the last two week (22 of them) and keeping up
with the stray/feral colonies (we can do so much more for those cats
with our combined efforts).
Our adoptable galleries on this site will be up and running next week!
Thank you to everyone who has supported both of our groups in MN and WI
thru this transition and thank you so much to all those people who have
helped us with donations and time!

For the last couple years Stray Feral Rescue has been both our fiscal agent and our mentor. They have recently moved to a new location, and we are teaming up to work together!! We hope that it is going to be a wonderful collaboration! Each group has it's own strengths to contribute and we hope that we will be able to help a lot more cats.
There is a lot to do and a lot to learn for us all and we are finding that we have a lot of new options since we are now able to function in both MN and WI. It is amazing to us WI rescuers the resources available in the Twin Cities area. Since we started working together, we've already spayed and neutered a number of cats, done a few rescues, and we are working to set up a collaborative TNR effort in MN with another group. Getting the two organizations functioning smoothly together might take some work, but it seems like it is really going to pay off for the animals!

CatTown Rescue’s Farm Feral & Stray program has an opportunity to have a TNR video spot run on a local Hudson cable TV station. We need someone who has a video camera willing to help us film our presentation and put it on a CD to give to the station.
This would be a huge FREE boost to helping free-roaming cats and their caregivers to garner support for the program.
Anyone willing to help us produce this? Please use the Contact form on the contact page and choose "Trap, Neuter, Return Program Questions" in the Subject dropdown and let us know please.
Thanks to anyone that can help us out here.

It has been brought to our attention at CatTown Rescue that there are a large number of free-roaming cats and kittens around the Wanderoos bar that need to be spayed/neutered and vaccinated. Several members have brought us, and seen along the roadside to the bar, sick and dying kittens that were too late to help.
Please see our Events page for more information!

We aren't done yet but close! We have a few more things to do yet, such as our event scrapbook gallery. We are hoping that you might have ideas to send us too.
In here you will find information, tips, tricks, adoptable cats, and anything we can find that might be interesting.
