Meet the cats of the King TNR Project

The King TNR Project is the TNR project for which we are currently fundraising.  This project is named in honor of the woman who first brought these cats to our attention.  She faithfully fed them throughout the freezing winter of 2007-2008, and continues to feed them every morning.  They live in two alleys and one parking lot, on the south east side of Chicago.  We teamed up with Ms. King in February 2008 to trap, neuter, and return four of the cats, and the fifth cat turned out to be friendly so she was spayed, admitted to Tree House, and adopted into a loving home.  Ms. King currently does not have the time or resources to continue the TNR project, so we are volunteering to do the work to get the job completed, with her thanks and blessing.  Here in the photo are two cats we still need to get spayed/neutered and vaccinated.  The photo was taken in February 2008.  There are about TWENTY cats that still need to be spayed/neutered and vaccinated in this King TNR Project.  This project cannot happen without donations.  We are hoping to get started in early May and complete by end of May so donate now.
