We are aware of how many of you are interested in getting your hands dirty to save some animals. So when we were approached by Halina, President of the World League for Protection of Animals, to help them look for enthusiastic volunteers to help some beautiful kitties we knew many of you would be keen!
What? ATAAC and the WLPA - World League for Protection of Animals- are looking for volunteers that would be interested in getting involved in the 'Community Cats' program. These are stray cats that were at one stage abandoned by members of the community. They are given this name as they try and survive in the community and are fed and and cared for by some compassionate community members. The WLPA is often asked for help by these kind people who have taken on the task of managing colonies of Community Cats whom they feed once a day. The WLPA advise and assist with TNR - trap, neuter, return - but also with rehoming of kittens and adults, where possible.
Why? In order to assist these compassionate people, ATAAC and the WLPA are looking for volunteers who are prepared to commit to feeding abandoned cats in the following areas: Forrest Lodge, Glebe, Pyrmont (near the fish market), Waterloo, Alexandria, Campsie, Blacktown.
Who? You! It is always great if volunteer feeders live, study or work as close as possible to the cat colonies. If you are only able to once a week or fortnight you are more than welcome to join existing rosters.
When? Today! There is no greater time than the present to help animals!
The WLPA... The World League for Protection of Animals (WLPA) is a self funded, volunteer run animal charity. They employ one full time person to run their office in Gladesville and a part time person to work on wildlife campaigns. They also administer a kangaroo sanctuary in Sydney where joeys are raised and in due course returned into non shooting areas in NSW.
