WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS

FERAL CATS:
Learn why there are so many feral cats, where they come from, how people can live with them, and why Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) is the best approach to use with the feral cat population. Whether you’re a novice or you have experience with feral cats, this workshop provides the foundation for the feral cat know-how that you’ll need to be an informed volunteer or to help with feral cats in your neighborhood. The workshop is a prerequisite for both the “Trap & Transport” and the “Response Center/Help Desk” workshops.

TRAP & TRANSPORT:
This workshop trains you in good trapping skills and offers tips on how to successfully trap feral cats for trap, neuter, return (TNR) to their colony. Discover what's involved in the TNR process and learn how to assist others with the trapping and/or transport of feral cats for TNR. The "Feral Cats" workshop is a prerequisite for this workshop. Be sure to sign up for both workshops.

RESPONSE CENTER:
Assist people who report (via the SacFerals website) feral cat issues in the community and want to know how to deal with them. Requests are directed to Google spreadsheets for response and follow-up. Work from your personal computer to respond to these incoming reports. Previous computer experience and the ability to use spreadsheets and correspond with clients via emails are necessary. The “Feral Cats” workshop and the “Trap & Transport” workshops are a prerequisite.

Colony Caregiver:
If you would be interested in a workshop on being a Colony Caregiver and Managing a Feral Colony, email feralcatsproject1@gmail.com. Include “Colony Caregiver” in the subject line.

  1. Email feralcatsproject1@gmail.com Enter “Workshops 2017” in subject line.
  2. List the workshop(s) dates that you will attend.
