“We desperately need foster homes for them, because we are almost out of space in our isolation ward at the clinic and the kittens need to be separated from other cats,” Hirsch said.
People interested in opening up their homes to a kitten via fostering should visit LifeLineAnimal.org/fostercats and select the Community Animal Center as the location.
Authorities do not anticipate filing charges against the couple.
Anyone who has feral cats on their property that would like to keep the cats from reproducing should consider LifeLine’s TNR (trap, neuter, release) program. “Feral cats are never good candidates for adoption because they usually cannot be tamed if they are over 3 months old. At most shelters, particularly rural ones, feral cats are killed upon arrival,” LifeLine program Director Gin Taylor said.
“Since LifeLine manages Fulton’s and Dekalb’s county shelters, TNR rather than euthanisia is the standard response to feral and stray cats in those counties,” Taylor said. LifeLine loans traps to people interested in the TNR program along with easy trapping instructions. For more information or to get started with the TNR process, contact CommunityCats@LifeLineAnimal.org.
