Feral Friends of Greene County Tennessee is a small nonprofit organization dedicated to spaying and neutering as many cats and dogs as we can afford. We feel spay/neuter programs are the only solution to the pet overpopulation in our area.
In 2009 Greene County Animal Control took in 2,988 animals. Of those 2,404 were euthanized. Over 50% of those were deemed adoptable. Feral Friends believes we can make a difference. We are feeding several cat colonies in Greene County daily. We use the TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) method to help control the overpopulation. In total our rescue feeds 450 cats a day!
Feral Friends also has several safe sanctuary barns, which house close to 275 cats. All have been spayed or neutered and have been vaccinated. Our wonderful group of volunteers washes the cat bed covers weekly, checks on them daily to refresh their food supply and insures that all are healthy and happy! We are are 501 (c) (3) organization and depend totally on donations to maintain the cat colonies and pay our black hole of a veterinary bill. Won’t you please consider adding us to your list of charities.
OUR RESCUE TRAGEDY
On Saturday, Feb. 26, 2011 three Greene County teens pulled up to one of our safe barns and shot 14 of our babies. Only 2 survived – and have lost eyes. Some were so badly injured they had to be euthanized.
