Feral Cat Workshop


Who: The Town of Babylon and the Babylon Animal Adoption Center (BAARC) invite you to a free Feral Cat Education Workshop presented by the Animal Lovers League, Glen Cove. The program will be presented by Joan Phillips, Animal Lovers League Director and member of the Nassau County Feral Cat Committee. Joan has fifteen years experience in animal sheltering, operating a spay-neuter clinic and Trap-Neuter-Return Program (TNR) for feral cats. Co-presenter is Grace DeVita, Director of Second Chance Animal Rescue (SCAR), and past Director of the Humane Division of Nassau County SPCA.

What: This workshop will educate, train, and empower officials, members of the public and interested volunteers to become an integral part of the effort to reduce the unrestricted breeding of feral and abandoned cats. Learn the do’s and don'ts of successful programs. Public officials are encouraged to attend at least the first hour of the program to get an overall view of some successful collaborative/cost-effective programs.

A wealth of ideas and proven methods for successful trapping will be shared, and “hands-on” (without live cats) demonstrations of safe trapping, and the variety and use of traps available as well as how to organize a successful TNR program or day. Transport to spay-neuter clinics, after-care protocols and colony management and monitoring will be covered. Learn tricks to catch the most elusive kitties and about the latest in equipment. How to find spay-neuter resources and recruitment and training of those who really want to make a difference will be on the agenda as well.
