KILL THE CRISIS!
NOT THE ANIMALS!
We are A group of compassionate and caring people who help animals who are helpless,
mainly stray & feral cats, but not exclusively.
Spay - Neuter Programs:
We got the city
of Hudson to create a spay/neuter fund for the residence of Hudson, that means that
everybody, living here can spay/neuter their pet for (cats & dogs) for only $10.00!!
We hope that will help to stop the birth of so many unwanted animals.
Our Feral Cat Program:
The TNR (Trap/Neuter/Return) method is our effort to control the overwhelming
problem of overpopulation of unwanted cats. Feral/Stray cats are humanely
trapped, transported to a vet for spaying/neutering/inoculating and than, after
their ear is notched for recognition, are returned to their managed colony,
where they can live out their life. Our caretakers will feed the colonies
(17 in Hudson and Columbia County,
caring for 480 feral cats) every day and
shelters are built against the elements. The cats are monitored on a daily base.
Shelters are built for the winter to provide protection from the elements. Sick
or injured cats are medically attended and either released after recovery or
adopted out into loving homes.
Our Adoption Program: If cats are found who are tame or kittens, they
are tested for Fel.Leukaemia and FIV, they get spayed/neutered/vaccinated and
are placed in foster homes until adoptive homes are found. We follow a thorough
adoption process and guarantee to take the animal back if care is no longer
Our Rescue Program: We are receiving more and more calls for abused,
neglected and injured animals. One of our volunteers will follow up on the
complain and assist in the situation.
Animalkind also provides assistance for low income pet owners and will give out bedding,
dog/cat houses and food for the ones in need.
