The Cat Welfare Society (CWS) has put out an SOS for funds.
In a Facebook post put up on 1 March, the CWS said that it urgently needed $135,000 to “continue funding our humane sterilisation efforts and to assist in mediating against the removal of our community cats.”
See post below.
The CWS added that over the last 20 years, more than 34,000 cats have been sterilised since 1999.
In 2018 alone, 6,000 cats were sterilised which was a record high.
“This initiative directly reduces culling rates, which was as high as 10,000 brutally removed from our streets over a decade ago,” the CWS said.
It added that the $135,000 will keep it going for 6 months, with the goal of sterilising another 2200 cats to ensure a thriving community cat population that is under control.
“Your support will enable humane decisions and serve as a gentle reminder to be kind to all animals that share this earth with us. Your donation is vital to our survival,” it said.
The CWS also released a short video showing stray cats in various neighbourhoods, a partnership with communications agency SPIN Worldwide.
