Looking for information on programs that can help?
REMEMBER: WE ARE NOW OVER CAPACITY AND ARE NOT ACCEPTING FERAL CATS AT THIS TIME.
SEE OUR HOME PAGE ON THIS SITE FOR WAYS TO GET HELP FROM OTHERS.
HOWEVER, F YOU WOULD LIKE TO UTILIZE OUR EMAIL NETWORK OF INDIVIDUALS, CAT RESCUE
GROUPS AND SHELTERS IN ORDER TO FIND A HOME FOR A SOCIALIZED CAT OR KITTEN, OR HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTION, PLEASE EMAIL US AT: CATTAILACRESSANCTUARY@GMAILCOM
IF YOU NEED SPECIFIC ADVICE ON TRAPPING FERAL CATS YOU CAN CONTACT US AT OUR EMAIL
ADDRESS. YOU CAN ALSO GET TNR HELP FROM THE MI HUMANE SOCIETY (WWW.MichiganHumane.org)
OR ALL ABOUT ANIMALS RESCUE (AllAboutAnimalsRescue.org). BOTH OF THEM CAN RENT YOU
LIVE TRAPS, PROVIDE ADVICE ON HOW TO LIVE TRAP, AND BEST OF ALL THEY BOTH HAVE FREE OR
LOW-COST TNR PROGRAMS TO GET CATS STERILIZED, VACCINATED, AND EAR-TIPPED.
WE DO NOT take socialized cats or kittens, but can help you by using our network of
volunteers, rescue groups and shelters to find placements for them. Also, we strongly
urge you to reach out to the Michigan Humane Society's Adoption Centers in Detroit, Westland, or Auburn Hills. In fact the NEW MHS-Detroit and MHS-Westland were
specifically designed for the long-term comfort of cats so they can experience less
stress and remain longer and have more opportunities to be adopted. They have a
extremely high adoption rates for adoptable cats (and dogs, by the way). To make an appointment interview before taking a cat to MHS go to their website to find the phone
number of the specific MHS Adoption Center you are interested in. Another excellent
shelter that goes the extra mile for all animals it receives and which also has extremely
high adoption rates is the Humane Society of Huron Valley in Ann Arbor (www. hshv.org).
All of these shelters are wonderful and humane places and worth the drive regardless
of where you live:
(Please note that the MHS provides an additional service to pet owners through its
animal behaviorists. Often problems w/pets can be resolved when you receive the right counseling for a particular problem. That is why they prefer to speak to you before you
surrender your pet: MHS Animal Behavior Helpline: (248) 650-0127. Calls are generally returned within a 48 hour period. MHS offers this as a free service to anyone in need, not just those who adopt animals from them or bring animals to them.
