Cat Welfare - behind the scenes

Category : animalwelfare

The Cat Welfare Society intends to 'reduce the stray cat population through humane means, namely sterilisation.'

In "Working with the Cat Welfare Society" Dawn (presumbly Dawn Kua) blogs about her activities with the society quite frequently.

She features Spay Days, the recent Asia for Animals conference (see the June 2005 archives), discusses Trap-Neuter-Release, mediation, fund raising (Neil Gaimen lends a hand) and other issues.

She also features some handsome and cute cats about town every now and then!
