ORGANIZATION: GARDEN CITY COMMUNITY CATS PROJECT

There is a huge population of free-roaming cats in Garden City because of the history of the temporary community members in some areas. The responsibility for the city’s free-roams cats has fallen on to the caregivers who have taken on the overwhelming tasks of their care.

Though we have always had a caring few who maintain their own colonies, this is a low-income area, and caregivers are using the little money they have to pay for spay and neutering surgeries, fostering, intake fees for adoptable kittens and cats, along with medical care and food. These efforts of a few are not sustainable. Cats are multiplying faster than they are being trapped.

The cats belong to the whole community, not to just the few people who have taken on the responsibility.

The Garden City Community Cats Project shares in the management and expense of Garden City cats. We believe in Trap Neuter and Return (TNR) as a way to show compassion to our cat community, and work with the caregivers to incorporate this into their colony's management.

Please drop food donations off at ROOTS, 3308 West Chinden Boulevard Garden City.

Monetary Donations can be given at https://www.gcccproject.com/

About GARDEN CITY COMMUNITY CATS PROJECT

Location:

9169 W State St. #1535, GARDEN CITY, ID 83714, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to significantly reduce the population of, free-roaming, colony and domestic cats in Garden City through Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR); and provide support by offering free TNR services for all cats in Garden City.

Description

It has been estimated one cat and its offspring can be responsible for 420,000 cats in 10 years. 80% of new kittens born annually are born outdoors! Garden Ctiy is the only city in Ada County without a contract, thus without the many services of the Idaho Humane Society. GCCCP is here to help community members and colony caregivers be the rescuers for our feline population.
