Gravesend Cat Friends is a 4 year old Trap- Neuter-Return (TNR) and Cat Rescue group. We have neutered over 400 cats so far, and fostered and adopted out dozens more.

We are seeking general volunteers, especially those with SPACE for holding trapped cats pre and post surgery (a few days before and after surgery)... cats are in special traps (that have 2 doors, and fork separators that allow us to safely clean the cat's litter and feed it without it being able to touch us, sort of a compartmentalized cage) the entire time and will never be let loose. Basements, garages, and covered porches are ideal for this. We operate out of South East Brooklyn, so Gravesend, Midwood, Bensonhurst, Coney Island, Brighton Beach, etc, are all ideal neighborhoods for holding spaces.
We could also use help trapping and occasional fill in with transportation to and from the vet's office, almost always on Monday mornings (8:30 am) and afternoons (5:30 pm). Jeeps are great for this, as we often have 3 trapped cats to move.
We are also looking to become an official 501c charity, so that we may collect donations. We're seeking grant writers, lawyers, legal specialists , accountants and others good with fundraising to do pro bono work and help us out with this. There are also many Pet Smart and other pet store grants to apply for.
Please let us know how you can help, and thanks in advance.
