In 2005 three dedicated cat lovers got together in attempt to save one cat. Since then there are chapters throughout New Brunswick & Nova Scotia. Besides having successful TNR programs, their long range goal is to educate the public on the importance of spay and neutering. I witnessed this need, first-handed in 1991 while visiting Shediac, NB., when I was first introduced to the mentality of how some people view barn cats. I was at the farm of this very old woman who told someone to go give the left over beef stew we didn’t finish to the cats. So there I am thinking, “how sweet”.
The next day, I heard her tell the same person to go out and drown the very cats she was feeding the night before, cause they weren’t doing their job in killing the barn mice. I tried to explain to her that if she didn’t feed the cats, they would eat the mice. She would hear none of my logic, and I was given heck in me arguing with a 93 year old woman. So please don’t assume everyone believes in spaying their animals. And of course, as with any cat rescue group they place non-feral homeless felines in responsible homes.
