Project Gulf Coast Support

Project - Gulf Coast Sustained Relief: Triple R Pets has supported the Gulf Coast in the wake of Hurricane Katrina since forming in November of 2005. The primary focus area has been the Mississippi Coastal areas, but help extends to Alabama and Louisiana through coordinated efforts with other organizations. Along the coast, we provide food distribution, veterinary care, TNR, free micro-chipping and support for residents to allow them to keep their companion animals while rebuilding their lives.

Project - Disaster on the Home Front: Aggressive TNR programs, coordinated with other local agencies to continue to work towards lowering the feral cat population.

Project - Community Outreach: Several small Community Outreach Programs are being managed by local volunteers. Some examples include: working with senior citizens to provide transportation to veterinary care offices, food donations and veterinary care funding as needed; providing transportation of animals who are being re-homed or re-located to new shelters for better adoption chances.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Triple R Pets strives to provide TNR services to the west and southwest areas of Cook County along with the counties bordering Cook County to the south and southwest. Through the TNR program, Triple R Pets helps hundreds of neighborhood cats live healthy lives without continuing the cycle of reproduction. The caretakers within the Triple R Pets' programs meet all the requirements under the Cook County Feral Cat Ordinance. Additionally, through annual caretaker colony surveys, Triple R Pets provides valuable statistics on colony attrition that furthers the goal of TNR as an accepted and approved practice.

Triple R Pets services the needs throughout the community through programs that empower local caretakers to provide low cost TNR services along with practices that keep neighborhood cats safe. Through community education, local municipality agreements and agreements with local animal shelters, Triple R Pets is able to reach out to a broad demographic of caretakers and leverage an all volunteer base to meet the needs of the caretakers.

Triple R Pets serves a unique purpose within the TNR community. As an all volunteer organization, the capabilities of the group are as deep as the volunteer base. From public education, to targeted area programs within specific communities, Triple R Pets is able to provide a variety of services to meet the needs of the community.

Through the on-line database, Triple R Pets tracks the number of cats TNR'd as well as the status of each cat on an annual basis. Using this data, Triple R Pets is able to demonstrate the natural attrition in the colonies that TNR supports. Additionally, through partnerships with local animal shelters, Triple R Pets is able to see the impact on the intake and euthanasia rates in the areas where Triple R Pets has programs.
