Can 'no-kill' shelters for feral cats help wild birds?
The "10th Life" Sanctuary is a seven-year-old "no-kill" 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity dedicated to providing lifetime care to sick, unwanted, and feral cats. At the present time we are providing lifetime care for over 600 cats.
We help people and cats. We also help other animal shelters and rescue groups become "no-kill" by taking their perfectly lovable - but unadopted - cats.
Are no-kill shelters and sanctuaries a better option for feral cats than Trap-Neuter-Release programs? Sanctuaries built like this -- with enclosed habitats -- prevent the cats from preying on wild birds and other native species.
Should birders donate to and promote no-kill shelters that accept feral cats?
