Need volunteers-mainly trappers--for the Fayette Humane Society's cat program called TNVR (Trap/Neuter/Vaccinate/Release). The purpose of the program is to catch community cats (those that have no owner), get them fixed and vaccinated, then return them to their outdoor homes. The goal is to reduce the future cat population. Trap one cat and you've met our goal--instant gratification! Plus no experience required-you can shadow an experienced trapper until you’re comfortable going "solo". Volunteers can help by doing any piece of the following or, better yet, do it all:
1. Talk to feeders of the cats to understand the situation (location; number of cats; who feeds them; age of kittens (to determine if they weigh enough for the spay/neuter) 2. Make appointments with the clinics 3. Trap the cats 4. Harbor cats that night and for one night post-op 5. Drive them to clinic in the morning and pick up in the evening (OR arrange for one of our organization's other volunteers to do the transporting) 6. Return the cats to the trapping site and release them 7. Track data for each cat trapped (sex; age; etc.) 8. Disinfect the traps 9. Start over!
Fayette Humane Society advocates for animals, supports the community, and enhances pet/owner relationships through spay/neuter programs, rehoming & adoption services, and community education and outreach.
The Fayette Humane Society is located in Fayette County, Georgia. We are a non-profit all volunteer organization that does not have a building. We assist pet owners with pet rehoming through owner surrender into out organization. We have initiated a Spay/Neuter program for pet owners and our dog/cat rescues in our community. Our volunteers coordinate and participate in a Trap/Neuter/Vaccinate/Return Program for feral cats. Our organization promotes adoption of our many dogs and cats through Weekend Petsmart Adoptions. We rely on Volunteer Fosters to provide housing for our many rescues until they find a forever home.
We'll work with your schedule.

This is the beauty of cat trapping--you determine how many cases you'd like to take on!
Basic computer skills helpful (for entering data on spreadsheet), although we have volunteers who can do that. PATIENCE required when waiting for cats to go in trap--and in dealing with people, which is part of the fun (meeting all kinds of people).
