Help Us Help You

Jul 26, 2017

To the Editor:

Did you know that in 2016 the Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) Program operated by the Friends of Southern Ocean County Animal Shelter treated 102 cats on LBI and 324 cats on the mainland for a total of 426 felines?

Assume 50 percent were female, each capable of three litters per year for a total of 629 litters per year. Each litter can have between three to five kittens.

Our TNR program has averted the birth of at least 1,917 to 3,195 homeless felines that would be euthanized. You may not notice our work or even be aware of it, but you would certainly know if we weren’t out there serving your community. Please support us in 2017 as we support you and the community in which you live.
