No matter the season, summer, spring, winter, fall or kitten, we’re out making an impact for cats and working to grow the trap-neuter-return (TNR) community. This past weekend we presented our workshop, Caring for Community Cats, to a wonderful group of folks who were looking for ways to help free-roaming cats.
We began by explaining who free-roaming cats are, where they are, and why they live outside. We covered local regulations too, and then went through the step-by-step of TNR, from assessing the situation at the start of a project, to returning cats and ongoing colony management. Our trained staff also demonstrated how to set up and set humane traps and shared practical tips from our own experience.
These workshops also serve as a way for community members to connect with our programs and with each other. We’re always uplifted by the positivity that arises when caretakers and advocates for cats get together. More cats benefit when we all come together to work cooperatively; when welfare organizations like ACR provide knowledge and resources, when individuals do their part, and when local governments lend support, the greatest impact can be made.
Thank you to the Mount Rainier Police Department for hosting and providing the event space, and thank you to all who joined us to learn about TNR and caring for community cats. Don't forget to follow our Facebook page to stay up to date on our current work and to find out about upcoming workshops.

This workshop is perfect for all cat lovers. I want to attend a workshop like this because I get the chance to learn a lot of thing, especially about the importance of taking care animals around us. Many people still don't know the right treatment people should have towards animals, especially with cats. The truth is, there are ways on how we can make this a better world for them. While there are cats who were lucky enough to have their owner, there are still cats who are in need of care and love from people.

At one time, the idea of a cat being a pet seemed to be a luxury. Now, cats are becoming more common in households and communities. Cats are great pets, but they can also cause problems if they are not cared for properly. If you have a cat, it is important to understand how to properly care for them so that they live a long and healthy life. At the Cat Health Workshop, you will learn about the different types of cats, their behaviors and needs, and how to care for them. You will also learn about their health care and behavioral needs, as well as how to find the best home for your new cat.
