SICSA President and CEO Nora Vondrell said, “There is a history in this community, and many other similar communities, of solely relying on resources from local municipalities, SICSA, and other animal welfare organizations to solve the stray and feral cat problem. The reality is that the most important part of the Community Cat Initiative we are proposing is the community-portion.”

SICSA will also be offering a free Community Cat seminar for the public on May 21 and June 3. If interested, sign up on the website.
