AN EASY WAY TO HELP COLONY CATS (& dogs)
Help raise funds for Colony Cats (& dogs) by registering for Kroger's Community Rewards program. There's no cost for you to take part – swipe your Kroger Plus card when you check-out, and
Colony Cats automatically earns dollars!
All you have to do is register your Kroger Plus card online at the KROGER WEBSITE
then either "Sign In" or "Create a New Account". Our group number is 83510. Once you're registered you should see Colony Cats listed as your community rewards recipient at the bottom of your store receipts. (If you already participate – NOW IS THE TIME TO RE-ENROLL FOR THIS YEAR.)
Thank you for taking part in this easy way to help support Colony Cats.
Don't forget to ask your friends and family to sign up too.
THANKS AGAIN VOLUNTEERS!
WE COULDN'T DO IT WITHOUT YOU!
On April 6, Colony Cats (& dogs) held a party to show
our deep appreciation for our wonderful volunteers.
We couldn't do what we do without the generous
and selfless work they do for our organization.

A fun time was had by all!

TRAP-NEUTER-RETURN Volunteers Needed!
Trap-Neuter-Return, "TNR" – is a critical component of reducing pet overpopulation, and preventing many cats and kittens from suffering. Did you know spaying one cat prevents 100 from being born? Would you like to help?
Colony Cats volunteers Jay & Paula are expert trappers and are asking for new volunteers to assist with TNR work. No experience required. EVERYTHING will be provided to you – training, guidance, equipment, bait and Spay/Neuter vouchers for use at Shelter Outreach Services of Ohio.
The traps need to be monitored, which you can do from your vehicle. Mornings are best for trapping since the SOS clinic can fix feral cats without an appointment Tues - Fri until 2pm. (If you trap any other time, you will need a place to hold the cats, such as your garage or basement.)
We are specifically targeting the 43229/43224 zip codes in the Morse Rd/161 areas
(east of I-71, north of Cooke Rd., south of I-270N)
If you'd like to help or have questions/concerns, please contact Jay and Paula at email@example.com.
If you know of anyone else who may be interested please share this information.
Don't delay – Let’s save some lives.
