10-9-18: WE ARE TRAPPING CATS AGAIN! On Oct. 4, I wrote telling all that SPAN was stopping the cat trap/neuter/release as they didn't have enough help. Well... A lot of volunteers have stepped up to the plate to drive to/from Jacksonville with the cats...just so we didn't lose the Grant money. Again, Crescent City is allowing us to fly on their coat tails as they received the Grant. Thank you Crescent City! Angie DePotter, a big 'Thank You' goes to you for all your help getting this going again! AMAZING. Crescent City Flower Shop gets SERIOUS kudos for facilitating this project! With that said, we put 5 traps out on A, B, and Pleasant. Matt and Al went out this morning to check the traps. They trapped 3 cats and...A BOBCAT! I wish I had been there as Matt said he opened the cage and the cat flew out one way and he flew the other! Again, if you see any cats that have a clipped ear, that means it has been 'fixed'. Because of the bobcat, I caution everyone to tend to their animals. DON'T FORGET...Pomona Park Town Hall is collecting Pet Food donations now through mid-December. Food (wet and dry) and cash donations accepted). Please know all collected will be delivered to SPAN and other organizations involved in rescuing animals.
Join us at the Community Center for Turkey and sides. Bring your family and a side dish or dessert to share!
WITH GREAT SADNESS...I have to report the Spay/Neuter Program has been suspended due to lack of volunteers to transport cats to/from Jacksonville. They are having to turn the van back in. A couple folks at SPAN (South Putnam Animal Network) resigned for personal reasons and SPAN needs both young and old men/women to volunteer! If you are able to assist, please email the SPAN team and: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Get involved with your Community and help out!

TO ALL CAT OWNERS IN THE TOWN LIMITS OF POMONA PARK!!! We are part of a very small grant that is allowing us to trap cats and SPAN (South Putnam Animal Network) then takes them to Jacksonville to be 'fixed', clips a small portion of one of their ears, and returns them in the traps to the Town. THIS GRANT WAS RECEIVED BY CRESCENT CITY and they are sharing it with Pomona Park and Welaka. What then happens is someone from the Town picks them back up and releases them in the EXACT spot where we trapped them. We leave food with them and they are on their way - either back to your home or as feral cats - simply fixed. NOTE: The small 'snip' on the ear is not painful, nor are they hurt. It is simply to notify all involved that if we trap the cat again, we will release as it tells everyone that the cat has been fixed (from Animal Control, Vets, etc.) Again, please take care of your animals. These Grants can do just so much. We are very appreciative of them and to Crescent City for sharing!
