A few years back Jefferson, Iowa made the national news for shooting feral cats. Because of our organization, A.P.E. and a handful of other shelters we were able to not only get them to stop shooting cats, they now have Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) as law in Jefferson!
A.P.E. was at the very first meeting with the city. A.P.E. held weekly meetings with the city council and was the in the forefront of getting the city to adopt TNR!
With TNR efforts in Jefferson, Iowa or organization has pledge to the city to help take in kittens that are young enough to be socialized and find indoor family pet homes.
This kitty is from the Dollar General area of Jefferson, Iowa.
The kitty was born mid to late summer 2021. They are very playful and great with other cats. They have not met a dog or young children yet. However, the foster home feels they would do fine with either, with a proper introduction.
Their foster home describes them as , “They are very sweet and affectionate. They love to be held & like to lick your hands.”
