The Community Cats working group has compiled an extensive list of potential barriers to implementing comprehensive community cat programs, including obstacles stemming from local or state law and from internal policy and protocols. The group will soon disseminate a survey to HASS tier 1 shelters to determine which and to what degree these obstacles are impacting their efforts. The survey also explores each shelter’s current community cat programing, which will assist the working group in developing a list of resources to navigate the identified obstacles and create models for other shelters.

No updates yet, check back soon.
