We realize this is a heavy volunteer ask. We are working to get funding and we want to build this system - so in the beginning we think this will be a smaller project as we build the structure.

If TNR, community cats and homeless animals are important to you - this is a great opportunity to help us make a significant change in the way that outreach is done.
