Feral cats are abandoned pet cats. They were domesticated and then humans let them down, not even providing vet care and spaying/neutering. Many feral cats living together are called a “colony.” Feral colonies exist in a place where there is a natural resource for them, whether that is shelter, water, food, or all of the above. Once a colony forms, they begin to propagate. Since gestation is ONLY 66 days, a cat can have up to 4 litters per year. These kittens will probably grow up having no contact with human beings and therefore will be wild. Unfortunately, when one pair of kittens starts propagating, they can produce up to 382 cats by year three and 12,680 by year five (if all of the litters survive and propogate themselves). Luckily, if the wild kittens are trapped and tamed at approximately 5 weeks old, they can become wonderful trusting animal companions and NOT continue this terrible cycle.

The ONLY proven solution for adult feral cats is called TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return). The Feral Cat Food Bank of Austin (Austin, Texas) has added the letter “F” for food. TNRF. By feeding these cats, once they have been spayed/neutered and vetted, volunteers can help keep them healthier and prevent them from becoming a nuisance. The nuisance factor is usually cats scavenging for food, such as in a dumpster outside a restaurant.

Save Our Pets Food Bank (Atlanta, Georgia 31106) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping families keep their pets in their home. When Save Our Pets Food Bank started in 2008, it had no idea that the need for its services would continue to grow. Save Our Pets Food Bank doesn’t see the need decreasing any time soon. This includes free pet food on a monthly basis and soon, low-cost heartworm care.

The initial mission of Save Our Pets Food Bank was to help pet owners in the Atlanta, Georgia area. The food bank has gone far beyond those area boundaries now and has helped over 300 pet food banks get started nationwide. SOPFB recently joined an Alliance of Pet Food Banks around the country. The purpose of this was to come together to get the attention of pet food manufacturers nationwide. With millions of pets in rescues and shelters throughout the country it is heartbreaking to know that so much pet food is dumped by manufacturers instead of giving it away to organizations like a pet food bank.

SOPFB is very grateful to be a part of this alliance and knows it will make a tremendous impact on how the organization operates in the future. The most important thing is getting the pet food and help to those in need.
