Traps Needed

The AWS is helping folks manage feral cat colonies.  We are in need of traps so that we can loan them out to people willing to catch feral cats in their community.  We received a grant that allows them to be spayed or neutered for free.  The trap we like the most is Tru Catch Light Duty Animal Trap 30LTD and it is on sale for a limited time  for $50.00 (usually $69.00.)  There is an option on the purchase page if you would like to  donate a trap to our shelter.  Learn more about TNR here.  If you would like to be part of the solution for the cat over population problem, call 207-985-3244 x 120.    Learn more about Feral Cats.
