How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

In 2010, CCMD spayed/neutered and vaccinated more than 500 free-roaming cats. Presuming that 50 percent of the cats were female and that they would have had an average of 2 litters per year, of 4 kittens each, in one year we prevented the birth of 2,000 homeless kittens. 

 

We hope to expand our spay/neuter clinic capacity in order to alter even more animals, and continue our efforts to raise awareness about trap-neuter-return (TNR) programs, and educate feral cat caretakers about how to implement TNR.

Programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Program 1

Feral cat spay/neuter clinic

CCMD organizes a monthly spay/neuter clinic at BARCS, the Baltimore City animal shelter. We generally alter between 45 and 55 cats at each clinic. Cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies and distemper, and ear-tipped for identification purposes. The cost per-cat to the feral cat caretaker is $20, but CCMD provides financial assistance for those who need it.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"The monthly clinic program is the heart of our organization. This is a well coordinated all-volunteer event.  Colony cats from around the Baltimore metropolitan area are humanely trapped and delivered to the clinic site. The montly clinics are held at the Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter (BARCS). All feral cat caretakers/trappers are loaned CCMD equipment and are taught how to use it.  We also hold annual seminars to teach caretakers to build outdoor shelters to keep colony cats warm and dry. And we hold a free montly class at BARCS to teach fundamentals of TNR."
