Florida Animal Friend is concerned about feral cat populations, the welfare of individual cats, and the welfare of wild animals. When reviewing proposed projects that target feral cat populations, Florida Animal Friend prioritizes projects that demonstrate responsible management of existing feral cat colonies, community collaboration, and consideration of impacts on wildlife.
To be considered for a Florida Animal Friend grant, your application should include:
The goal of any TNR feral cat management program should be to maximize quality of life for the cats and to eliminate the existing colony over time through attrition.
Note: Florida Animal Friend will not fund any program that is inconsistent with local ordinances.
Florida Animal Friend values the lives of individual wild animals, no matter their species status. The goal of any TNR program should be to lessen the impact on wildlife by reducing the number of feral cats and eventually eliminating their presence from the environment.
