Community Issue = Community Solution in Baldwin County

Furrever Homes Rescue & Orange Beach Animal Care and Control (OBACCP) volunteers recently joined forces again for another successful Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) effort in Baldwin County. 

 

OBACCP was contacted by a Baldwin County citizen desperate for help with a rapidly growing colony of community cats just outside of Foley. OBACCP and Furrever Homes has successfully collaborated in the past in animal welfare matters. OBACCP reached out again to Elizabeth Chastang of Furrever Homes Rescue and quickly joined forces. Volunteers from both organizations coordinated with the property owner and successfully caught and transported all of the cats to and from the veterinary clinic. Furrever Homes Rescue coordinated for veterinary services and covered the veterinary expenses. 

“Once again a community issue required a community solution. We were happy to again partner with OBACCP to affect a positive outcome. This was another highly successful trap, neuter and return project that helped stabilize a community cat population that could have quickly gotten out of control,” said Elizabeth Chastang, Furrever Homes Director.

Before September 2017, officials in Orange Beach, Alabama, didn’t have a procedure in place for addressing people’s concerns about outdoor cats. Today, the city has a thriving Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program. The Orange Beach Animal Care and Control Program (OBACCP) has spayed or neutered more than 150 cats and kittens and adopted out at least 30 to date.
