ALL CATS--INCLUDING FERAL AND STRAY CATS--ARE PROTECTED UNDER MINNESOTA LAW
How are Community Cats Different than a Stray or Abandoned Cat?
No matter where you are, community cats probably live among you. Community cats are unowned cats who live outdoors in virtually every landscape on every continent where people live. Like pet cats, they belong to the domestic cat species. However, community cats, also called feral cats, are generally not socialized—or friendly—to people. They live full, healthy lives with their feline families in their outdoor homes, what are commonly referred to as colonies. Trap-Neuter-Return is the only humane, effective approach to community cats, and it helps them and the communities where they live. More information can be found here.
There are so many cats throughout the state in need right now. So many rescues and TNR groups are in need of resources and volunteers. If you are a non-profit, JustServe.org may be a place to recruit volunteers to assist non-profit rescues and TNR groups and assist those organization and ours with getting more resources.
If you are a nonprofit looking for volunteers or looking to volunteer with a nonprofit, go to the bottom of the JustServe homepage to“Submit A Project”. Volunteers, register and sign up to volunteer. If you know of a non-profit in need of volunteers contact them and tell them about JustServe.
