Animal Alliance is part of the Toronto Feral Cat TNR Coalition, along with nine other groups, including Toronto Street Cats.
We've been working like stink over the past year to help the cats in Regent Park. We're making progress but we need some help.
Please see below, from Vanessa of Toronto Street Cats.
preparing for the upcoming clinic on March 13th and we are seeking people
to canvass in the Regent Park community. In order to increase the number of
participating cats, we really need your help. This week is supposed to be milder
in terms of weather so it will be a great chance to head out and talk to
Canvassing is done within the boundaries of the Regent Park
community. Teams of two go out to assigned area residences and speak to
community members about the project and guide interested caregivers through the
registration process. Canvassing is typically done during the day, the week
leading up to the clinic day and the times are flexible. Canvassing materials
are available at the Toronto Street Cats space housed in the Toronto Humane
Society where Bill will meet with you for a brief review on the process and
answer any that questions you may have.
Talking to people about the
project is a very rewarding experience and because the clinic services are free,
people are generally very open to having a conversation. Canvassing is an
essential part of the project and we would so appreciate as much help as we
can get to ensure we reach our goal of helping 600 cats overall.
If you are interested in volunteering for canvassing, please email me
your availability and we will be in touch shortly with more information
about when and where to go. Canvassing is an vital component to the success of
the clinics and any time you can dedicate to this task is deeply appreciated.
Also, please note: there will be a Toronto Street Cats volunteer
orientation happening this coming Sunday, March 10 at 12pm at the Toronto Humane
Society. This is a great opportunity to come together to learn more about
the project, meet other volunteers and get answers to your questions. Please RSVP if you would like to attend - bring a friend, everyone is welcome.
Thank you again for your dedication and support - we couldn't do it
