To protect and improve the lives of cats in our community by taking actions that advance cats’ best interests, we trap, neuter and release feral cats as a humane way to control cat population. thru compassionate care of cats colonies.
We, Central Texas Feline Rescue, are primarily a TNR group but we also manage 20 stray and feral cat colonies in the Round Rock/Austin area.
We feed over 200 cats daily. Any new, sick or injured cats is reported to our colony trappers so the cat(s) can be trapped for TNR or a trip to the vet, check for microchip, put up for adoption or release if its a feral. We also rehome feral kittens to farm areas and safe barns if they are found in unsafe places, like parking lots or under a highway. The current colony cats are all sterilized, vaccinated and healthy. No community cat experience is needed to join us. We supply the food you supply the love and caring disposition.
As a prior reviewer stated in their review. The expectation from the founder is more than just feeding your designated cat stations. You are harassed by the founder to be "active" in social media fundraising and are shamed if it is not in your realm of everyday life. I too was let go by the founder because I would not provide a "selfie of me volunteering". I don't do selfies. I too seldom if ever needed a sub feeder and purchased the approved cat food out of my own pocket. In a nutshell the founder is "my way or the highway", stubborn, abrasive, ungrateful and has no leadership skills.
I was "let go" from my feeding duties today because I wasn't "active enough" in sharing fundraising posts on social media. I don't have a facebook, and am not an active social media user. When I explained this I was told I should text and email people, which I was not comfortable with. I did share at least once on my IG during each push but she would send very guilt trippy text messages if we didn't raise enough or share enough. I tried discussing this with her once and she was abrasive and suggested I quit, though she did later apologize for that.
I was a reliable feeder, only needing cover a couple of times. I was always willing to cover for other feeders that needed it as well. I never complained about picking up food bags that were covered in cat pee either. I'm not saying don't volunteer but be prepared for it to be more than just feeding the kitties and to be pressured and guilt tripped if what you have to offer isn't "enough." Really unfortunate experience.
