“I couldn’t stand behind the idea of trapping and euthanizing animals. They don’t have a voice. When I moved into my house, there were cats hanging around the yard. Then I came across one who was hurt from a fight. When you are facing a living creature that’s injured and bleeding, what do you do?
I took him (now named Preston) to the vet for the cuts and got him fixed. From there I learned more about the colony in my neighborhood and what we could do. I am proud to say the colony in my HOA are now protected and part of Dallas’ trap and release (TNR) program. It is on-going work to take care of the cats, we feed them morning and night, twice a day. But it’s worth the effort. When you take your passion and can impact a community, it’s an amazing place to be.”
