Orange Beach Animal Care & Control is in the process of ordering our first 20 traps the Orange Beach City Council agreed to purchase for the Trap Neuter and Return project. The endorsement of TNR was essential before OBACCP could move forward.
OBACCP is finalizing the details with our local veterinarians about how many spay/neuter spaces they will allow and how often we can get them. This is the most critical limiting factor for the program (besides funding). We can only process as many cats as the veterinarians can handle and still run their practices.
Encourage your local veterinarian to get involved with OBACCP. If you are a veterinarian, get involved and let us know how you would like to help by contacting OBACCP.
This is not an inexpensive endeavor. Each cat is evaluated on intake; spayed or neutered; vaccinated for rabies, distemper, and respiratory diseases; treated for internal parasites; treated for ticks, fleas and ear mites; and ear tipped while under anesthesia.
We are actively seeking donations to fund the project. Please make a tax deductible donation.
We have scheduled a fundraiser at BuzzCatz (our unofficial headquarters) on September 12th for members of the Orange Beach Chamber of Commerce where we hope to get some funding support from our community businesses. Of course we readily accept donations from caring and concerned individuals through our website or by mail.
If you are a business owner or leader, get involved by volunteering or by making a tax deductible donation.
Volunteers are essential to the success of the project. We are actively recruiting and identifying volunteers for trappers, transporters, colony caretakers, and even fosters for adoptable cats and kittens, all of which we will train.
We encourage everyone that can help to sign up through our website on the Join Us page.
As concerned citizens assist us in identifying the growing list of cat colonies in Orange Beach, we will begin to TNR the colonies identified. We expect to begin very soon with some of the smaller colonies, expanding to the larger colonies as we develop resources and volunteers. We anticipate beginning this process within the next 45 to 60 days.
Help us locate cat colonies by providing information on our website.
Currently, over 430 local governments in the US have officially embraced Trap, Neuter and Return to successfully manage their community cat populations.
When it comes to cat advocacy, OBACCP is working to champion low-cost spay and neuter policies and programs, as well as lifesaving Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) and Shelter-Neuter-Return (SNR) initiatives.
Orange Beach Animal Care and Control is a resource for animal advocates, dedicated community cat caregivers, and volunteers driving change and accelerating protection for community cats and our other animals in Orange Beach. Effect meaningful change and make Orange Beach a better place to live for its citizens and cats.
