SCARF Launches New Program

SCARF, the Shelby County Animal Shelter, and the City of Sidney are working together to control the feral cat population in Shelby County. A feral cat is a cat that has been born into wildness or has not had human interaction for a significant period of time and is able to survive in the wild.
The Shelby County Animal Shelter will conduct anaother TRAP-Neuter-Return (TNR) clinic for feral cats in the community again on October 3rd & December 12th. SCARF volunteers will work to notify the neighborhood where trapping will occur, trap cats, and return them to their neighborhood once the procedure has been completed. While the cats are at the clinic, they will be vaccinated against rabies and will have an ear tipped for identification purposes. Neighbors will be asked to keep pet cats indoors during the trapping and to refrain from feeding the feral cats so they may be more easily trapped. Funding for the program will be shared by the City of Sidney and SCARF.

According to Alley Cat Allies (a national advocacy organization dedicated to the protection and humane treatment of cats), scientific studies show that Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the humane and effective approach for managing feral cats. Trap-Neuter-Return improves the life of feral cats, improves their relationship with the people living near them, and decreases the size of colonies over time. The neutered cats will roam less and will not fight for mates thereby creating less noise.

Anyone wishing to volunteer for this program is urged to call the Animal Shelter at 937-498-7201

Earn Three Cents A Day Towards Our Mission

Welzoo donation

Here is a way you can donate money to SCARF without losing any of your own money! It's called Welzoo, and once you're signed up, it begins sending three cents a day to SCARF on your behalf. How does it work? By making your home page. That just means it's going to be the first website you see when you go online. The reason: You'll naturally reach it everyday. Welzoo then automatically donates 3 cents to SCARF. You pay nothing! When you are signed in, Welzoo is like a portal to another site. They will show you a website based on your interests that you select during sign up. And Welzoo does not track what you do online since they are simply your start up page, not a browser or search engine. Here is your link to get started....just choose Shelby County Animal Rescue Foundation as your charity!
