It’s kitten season. Considering during her productive life, one female cat could have more than 100 kittens, Camp Many Paws, a Naples nonprofit is working around the clock to help stop the overpopulation.
Camp Many Paws, is a 501(c)3 nonprofit volunteer based rescue organization dedicated to the care and management of the feral and unwanted cat population by improving their quality of life through Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR).
They also foster many of the cats that have been humanely trapped and adopt when possible. Volunteers manage feral cat communities through TNR, daily feeding and providing medical care as needed.
Cost of the cat care is covered by Founders, Mary Benjamin, Susan Piskorski, Carolyn Gray and Gwen Austin, the dedicated volunteers and supportive friends, but they need the communities help.
Collier County Choppers will host the first annual “Stray Cat Strut” fundraiser benefiting Camp Many Paws on Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 1-6 p.m. located at 1100 Commercial Blvd, Unit 112, Naples. The event includes music by local live bands, a cookout and beverages, a 50/50 raffle, a silent auction ticket of chance and games. A $10 per person donation, includes food, (beverages separate).
Please consider bringing a donation of cat food (dry or moist) and you will receive a “Thank You” gift. All proceeds from this event will go to cover the cost of medical and daily expenses for the care of the colony cats they manage. All donations are tax deductible.
Camp Many Paws has been caring for colony cats and the support of adoptions of displaced cats since 2013. Currently they manage approximately 150 cats in several colonies scattered throughout Naples and Golden Gate.
