and feral cat caregivers, as well as helpful tips that all of us should remember during the cold-weather season to keep pets safe.
Thanks to Nathan Sears
for Building Feral Cat Shelters
Colony Cats (& dogs) would like to thank Nathan Sears for building 15 feral cat shelters for his Eagle Scout project.
We also thank the following individuals and companies for their generous donations of money and materials for Nathan's project: Home Depot Dublin & Hilliard, Lowes-Dublin, Roush Hardware-Dublin, Oakland Nursery-Dublin, David Evans, John Daly, Mr. Johnson, Carol Sears, Ericka Brechtel, and Mrs. Betty Cline.
We are happy to say that the shelters are in place around the Columbus area (per Colony Cats' advisement) and will keep many feral/community cats warm this winter.
December Volunteer of the Month: YVETTE HANSELMANN
We love our volunteers! They give so much to help
us, so we're giving them a big "shout-out" with our Volunteer of the Month feature.
Introducing our December Volunteer of the Month –
Yvette Hanselmann. What she loves best about volunteering with Colony Cats is seeing all of the little faces at the adoption center window watching and hoping for attention, more food and clean water.
Connie's advice for those wanting to volunteer with Colony Cats is to do a little at first, and not get overwhelmed. And to know that no matter what you do, you are indispensable to our mission of rescue.

SPAY/NEUTER - the only solution!
Overpopulation due to unaltered pets contributes
to problems of neglect, abandonment, suffering,
crowded shelters and sadly euthanasia.
Please be part of the only solution - please fix your pet.
There are affordable solutions and help available.
