SpokAnimal is giving their rescues an important task.  No cages for these guys.  Instead of being left inside concrete walls, subjected to countless adoption fairs, and, sadly, the real possibility of being euthanized, this outstanding organization is taking stray and feral cats and giving them a purpose.

Watch this powerful documentary presented by Greater Good and Spokanimal Animal Shelter.  This is smart.  This is the right thing to do.  And it aligns with an important initiative by another group, Living Free Animal Sanctuary; Almost Home 2020.  Their primary objective is to see all shelters in the US become no-kill shelters by 2020 and a large part of that is making shelter and rescue animals visible through innovative, creative methods and highlighting their adoptability.

  1. I think this is such a wonderful idea and I’d love more information on how to start something like this in my local area.

    1. Stacia, I would suggest reaching out directly to SpokAnimals for information. I am sure they will be happy to share how they got things started in their area. And be sure to check out the Almost Home 2020 Initiative which is working toward making all shelters in the US no -kill shelters by 2020. You’re starting a program like Feral to Farm would be a huge help!

  2. We live in Port Washington NY. We have been sheltering and feeding 3 beautful feral cats,[ neutered], we are thinking of moving and cannot take them with use., Please can you advise us,

    1. Hi, Allan. I would recommend reading this article from 2010: https://patch.com/new-york/portwashington/fur-is-flying-over-shelter-for-cats. There is a reference to Peggy Maslow who is President of the North Shore Audubon Society as she was trying to have the area establish something for feral and stray cats. I couldn’t find any additional information, but she may be your best resource. Her number is listed on this page: http://northshoreaudubon.org/about-us/
