Community Cat’s Initiative
Over the last several years, Ruff Start Rescue has been dedicated to helping community cats. These cats are often dumped on properties or show up as strays and can quickly multiply. Occasionally, property owners will try to help the cats by providing necessities like food and shelter out of the goodness of their hearts. However, without utilizing spay/neuter surgeries to help control the population, these groupings can grow exponentially! As the number of animals on the property begins to increase, it becomes more and more likely that nuisance behaviors such as fights and marking will occur and disease may affect the colony.
