National Feral Cat Day Event with the Surrey Community Cat Coalition - Newton

Be sure to mark your calendars! National Feral Cat Day is October 16th and Surrey Community Cat Coalition is coming to Newton! With a food drive to help feed the kitties, in store deals and great fun for a cause, this weekend you’ll be glad you came.

This is a 2-day event happening both Saturday the 15th and Sunday the 16th. The store is open from 9am to 7pm, and the event runs from 12pm-4pm each day. This weekend will make for great family fun, while filling the tummies of our kitty friends on our streets.

 

About SCCC:


Early 2,000 homeless and abandoned cats and kittens in Surrey are rescued every year, and that number is increasing.
In March 2014, animal welfare organizations came together at a stakeholder forum to address the growing number of free-roaming community cats in Surrey, which was just too many for any of the individual organizations to handle alone.
In response, the Surrey Community Cat Coalition was formed in October 2014 to coordinate rescue and education efforts and develop a cohesive action plan to address the number of unwanted cats in Surrey and the underlying causes.


Vision
A community in which people value the lives of cats and ensure they are healthy and safe, cared for, and have access to food, water, shelter, and medical treatment.

Mission
To end the overpopulation of cats in Surrey and improve their welfare through spay/neuter, adoption, public education, and advocacy.

Values
Every cat’s life is worthy. All cats and kittens have a right to live and be cared for and treated with respect and compassion.
All animals should enjoy five essential freedoms:
1. Freedom from hunger and thirst
2. Freedom from pain, injury, and disease
3. Freedom from distress
4. Freedom from discomfort
5. Freedom to express behaviours that promote well-being.

Long-term quality care in conjunction with trapping, neutering, and returning adult cats to their home site (TNR) where appropriate is the best available method to control the community cat population.
Education is key in creating and maintaining healthy communities.
A problem in the community requires the entire community to come together and be part of the solution.
Protecting animals from suffering is everyone’s responsibility.
