With input from our friends at the Community Cat Coalition, each week we will be featuring a cat that needs a loving home.
Declawed and dumped. Why in the world would anyone ever abandon a cat? So cruel, so irresponsible… and then to make it worse, if the cat is declawed?
Clarence was found at an apartment complex, living in the bushes and begging to come in. The story was someone from craigslist gave him to someone who let him outside… neighbors were feeding him occasionally, but no one would claim him.
Poor Clarence was so confused – he is such a nice cat, with no bad habits, no one can figure out why in the world he was abandoned!
Clarence is currently at Dooley’s Doghouse in Kirkland, and he is looking for an indoor only home where he will never have to fear abandonment again.
He is a large boned boy, with long orange fur and a gentle demeanor; he is neutered, vaccinated, deflea'd and dewormed, negative for leukemia and FIV, microchipped and ready to go home today!
About the Community Cat Coalition:
The Community Cat Coalition (CCC) was formed in November 2011 when a few people realized that if rescue groups, shelters, and independent rescuers work together, we can make a positive change in the lives of our community cats.
The CCC is an all volunteer organization . All funds go toward the efforts of TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) – paying for spay/neuters, vaccines, medical care for injured/sick free roaming cats, or the costs of fostering the kittens who are removed from the sites.
Our goal is to educate interested people in our area so there is a common understanding of what a community cat is (they may be feral, semi-feral, or abandoned/stray tame cats – any free roaming cat) and how to care for them.
The community cats belong to no one person – they belong to all of us. This concept is taking hold worldwide, and we CAN make a difference right here, in our communities.
We provide classes in basic TNR, (Trap-Neuter-Return) open to the public and all shelters/rescues. We give people the tools to do TNR safely and effectively, and we also simply involve them in the care of the community cats.
We also offer classes on related topics, such as care of bottle babies, taming feral kittens, and how to do a barn relocation. All classes are free.
We are excited to be in the middle of this movement - TNR and care of the community cats is a worldwide phenomena and is rapidly gaining in popularity.
We do not currently have a website, but post frequent stories/information on our Facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/CommunityCatCoalitionWa.
We have established an email account in order to provide a way for anyone to reach out and contact us with questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Thank you for your interest in TNR and the CCC.
