Red Alert! Cats in Lawrenceville Need Our Help!

From PlannedPEThood:

RED ALERT: 
Help us save the Lawrenceville cats!!!
We don’t raise the alarm unless it’s absolutely necessary. This is one of those times.
An apartment complex in Lawrenceville is about to be demolished. It’s home to more than 30 cats–some feral, some friendly–who live in crawlspaces under the buildings and have relied on the residents for food and water. The residents must be out by June 15, and demolition can begin any time after that.
There is nowhere for the cats to go. If not relocated, they will likely die of starvation or become trapped during demolition or meet some other terrible end. We can’t let that happen.
Planned PEThood has committed to saving the Lawrenceville cats.
 But we have a very brief window of time to do it–and we need your help.  So far we have trapped 16 adults and 7 kittens. However, we know there are at least 19 more cats at the complex!
Here’s what you can do to help us get these cats SAFE before the bulldozers move in:
1. OUTDOOR OR WAREHOUSE HOMES:
When the last residents leave, the Lawrenceville cats will have no food or water – and shortly no home.  This young tabby cat needs an outdoor or warehouse home.
Most of the cats are feral, so they must be relocated to suitable homes in barns, sheds, backyards, warehouses, etc. In exchange for food or water, feral cats will provide free, organic pest control. We’ll spay/neuter and vaccinate the cat(s) before delivery, and we’ll also provide instructions on how to care for them during the relocation process. The cats are FREE to suitable homes. Please commit to adopting a feral cat or two for your backyard, barn, warehouse, workplace, etc.
Email jwampler@pethoodga.org or call 678-541-9370 for more information.
 
2. FOSTER HOMES:
One of the many kittens rescued from the apartment complex.  He and his siblings will be fostered, socialized and put up for adoption to loving forever homes.
We need foster homes for the young kittens, which can be socialized and put up for adoption. We provide all vet care and medications; you provide love and a safe space, like a spare bathroom or bedroom. Fostering SAVES LIVES–and that was never more true than in this situation. Can you become a foster family for kitties in need?
Email foster@pethoodga.org or call 678-561-3491 for more information.
 
3. DONATIONS: We need monetary donations to pay for spay/neuter and vaccinations for the cats being relocated to outdoor homes, as well as for the kittens and friendlier cats in foster care. Feral spay/neuter costs $35 per cat. Go here to donate and enter Apartment Cats in the dedication field (web only): https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/pethoodga. Donations under $10 can be made via PayPal to info@pethoodga.org.
Our volunteer rescued these newborns and placed them in a humane trap. Just as intended – their scent and cries attracted
their scared and elusive mom – who went in after them.
4. TRAPS:
We need more traps!
We use TruCatch traps, which can be ordered here:

Please SHARE this email with your friends to help us reach lots of people as quickly as possible.
If you have any media contacts that could cover the desperate plight of these cats, please let us know.  The clock is ticking!
Check our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/PlannedPEThoodGA/ for updates on the trapping and relocation efforts.
Please help us save these cats before it’s too late!
