Spay/Neuter through TNR
Cats are humanely trapped, spayed and neutered, tested, vaccinated, ear-tipped and then returned to their original location.
Colony management through volunteer feeders and trappers
We recruit volunteers to help with daily feedings of Marin-based colonies. Caretakers deliver food supplied by MFF and provide clean water. When new colonies are identified, volunteers use traps supplied by MFF in implementing TNR. When signs of illness are present, those animals are trapped to receive veterinary care.
Foster colony kittens and socialize adoptable cats
Volunteers foster feral kittens under 12-weeks-old. With human touch and care, kittens are socialized and eventually adopted into permanent homes. Whenever possible, we also foster feral kittens brought to the Marin Humane Society by Marin residents.
Raise public awareness about the plight of Marin’s stray and feral cats through education
We provide instruction to the public on TNR and how to manage a feral cat colony through personal demonstrations. We loan traps, teach people trapping techniques, distribute pamphlets and other educational materials to residents on how to co-exist with ferals, and for those who request help, we assist them with trapping.
We work with homeowners and property managers in providing humane solutions for ferals living on their property.
Raise funds to offer public assistance with the cost of spay/neuter and assist with providing food for colony caretakers.
Fundraising is paramount to our existence. With these donations, MFF buys cat food, traps, supplies, veterinary care, and most importantly, low-cost spay/neuter packages through the Marin Humane Society and various veterinarians in and around Marin.
