Shelter Workshop Fee:
Donations are appreciated. Should you not be able to bring a roll of aluminum foil backed Nashua tape (available at Home Depot); rolls will be available for $10. All other supplies are provided. Please note that supplies to build a complete shelter are limited to what we have on hand. Nashua Tape info:

Volunteer Builders Welcome!
Don't need the shelters for cats you're working with? Come build and leave them at the rescue! There is no charge for tape when building shelters for the rescue. If you are coming to volunteer, please alert the coordinator when you arrive.

Hey, if your cats aren't fixed yet, make sure you make that a priority too! You can learn how by coming to a TNR class same day as the Shelter Building workshop. TNR class runs from 11:30 am to 2 pm. You will have an hour after class to build a shelter in the workshop across the hall. More information about Trap Neuter Return can be found here:…

Winter Shelter Building Supplies Wish List:

• Nashua multi-purpose aluminum foil tape (available at Home Depot in the dryer duct section for $8 a roll; Model # 3220020500, Home Depot Store SKU # 915245)

•Large styrofoam cooler boxes – Just like fish shipment boxes or used for medicines to be shipped to hospitals. Check with your large chain pet shops, grocery stores, veterinary hospitals and human hospitals. Interior measurements of coolers should be an absolute minimum of 12 inches high and 18 inches wide. Preferred is 18 inches high and 20 to 22 inches wide.

• In lieu of Styrofoam coolers, heavy duty plastic storage tubs: two heavy duty storage bins that fit inside of each other with plenty of room for insulation between the two (on all sides and the top). Smaller of the two should be at least an 18 gallon. Outer container preferably should be Rubbermaid – won’t crack in cold weather.

• Straw (not hay. Dry straw that hasn’t been wet before)

• Reflectix mylar insulation – Found at Lowes/Home Depot in the insulation department. ($24)
Nature Advocate
Those cats need to be tested for ALL of the following diseases; or I hope the recipient of one of them that is adopted-out or someone coming in contact with your disease-infested cats sues you, their city, their county, their state, all legislators, any morally-corrupt veterinarians benefiting from this INHUMANE practice, and every last conniving and manipulative cat-hoarding TNR practitioner so deep that they never recover from it for the rest of their criminally negligent and criminally irresponsible sorry-excuses for lives. (For just one example of THOUSANDS, not long ago businesses in Miami were ruined by caretakers of feral-cats spreading hookworm in all the beaches. Lawsuits aplenty!)

These are just the diseases these invasive species vermin cats have been spreading to humans, not counting the ones they spread to all wildlife. THERE ARE NO VACCINES against many of these, and are in-fact listed as bio-terrorism agents. They include: Afipia felis, Anthrax, Bartonella (Rochalimaea) henselae (Cat-Scratch Disease), Bergeyella (Weeksella) zoohelcum, Campylobacter Infection, Chlamydia psittaci (feline strain), Cowpox, Coxiella burnetti Infection (Q fever), Cryptosporidium Infection, Cutaneous larva migrans, Dermatophytosis, Dipylidium Infection (tapeworm), Hookworm Infection, Leptospira Infection, Giardia, Neisseria canis, Pasteurella multocida, Plague, Poxvirus, Rabies, Rickettsia felis, Ringworm, Salmonella Infection (including the most dangerous new super-strain found only in cats), Scabies, Sporothrix schenckii, Toxocara Infection, Toxoplasmosis, Trichinosis, Visceral larva migrans, Yersinia pseudotuberculosis. [Centers for Disease Control, July 2010] The following can now also be added to CDC's list: Bird-flu (H1N1, H5N1, H7N2), Bovine Tuberculosis, Sarcosporidiosis, Flea-borne Typhus, Tularemia, Rat-Bite Fever, SARS, an antibiotic-resistant strain of Staph aureus (MRSA — Meticillin-Resistant Staph aureus) «The flesh-eating disease», and Leishmania infantum.

When ridding your lands and lives of these highly destructive man-made invasive-species vermin cats please do so in a manner where you can safely and sanitarily retrieve that useless carcass and dispose of it so no other life comes in contact with it. Your wildlife and neighbors will thank you. If using guns, I'd even advise against using a shotgun (the tool of choice in the past), too much disease-filled splatter. Make it clean as possible. Wear gloves while disposing of any cat-carcasses and even bury or burn those gloves too when the last cat in your area is finally gone. You need to dispose of that cat safely and hygienically so that wildlife won't die from the deadly diseases cats spread even after their death. Leaving ANY cat out in nature, alive OR dead, is no better than intentionally poisoning your native wildlife to death. I know this. I fed some wildlife and their offspring that they had while under my care with one of the hundreds of shot-dead cats on my lands. Those native animals then promptly died from some disease in that invasive-species cat-meat. Cats truly are complete and total wastes-of-flesh. They can't even be used to feed wildlife safely. And letting live cats roam free is absolutely NO different than throwing DDT on everyone's property to outright kill any other living thing. It's now time to put the cap back on every bottle of man-made environmental-poison labeled «CAT» and dispose of all of them too as environmentally safe as is humanely possible. Then make the production, ownership, and use-of any bottle labeled as «CAT» into a punishable fine, just like DDT was responsibly dealt with to end that similarly man-made environmental disaster.
