Mac's Fund

Mac’s Fund is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that is dedicated to the well being of community and shelter cats in and around the Philadelphia area.  We support local rescue organizations  through education and financial assistance. 

 

The Mac Fund offers financial assistance to organizations involved in TNR programs.  Mac’s Fund also supplies financial resources for emergency surgery for feral and community cats. 

 

We work closely with local animal rescue organizations to enhance the lives of these cats and  to help the community better understand these misunderstood neighbors. 

Mac's Fund is doing another TNR voucher program with Forgotten Cats! Call Forgotten Cats at 215.219.8148 and mention Mac's Fund Feline Fix when making your appointment. Cats must be community/feral cates and in a humane cat trap. Cats receive spay/neuter, FVRCP, Rabies, Flea Treatment, and Ear tip.

Clare & Steve Morrison explain what Mac's Fund is all about:

TRAP-NEUTER-RETURN-MANAGE

Trap-Neuter-Return-Manage, or "TNRM,” is the most humane and effective method known for managing feral and stray cats.  The cats, who usually live together in a group called a colony, are trapped by dedicated animal rescuers, often at their own expense, and brought to a veterinary clinic. The cats are then given a general exam, spayed or neutered, vaccinated for rabies and ear tipped to identify them as altered.   After they've recovered from their surgeries, the cats are returned back to their original territory as long as the location is deemed safe.  Once the colony has been been completely spayed/neutered, the caretaker who provides regular food and shelter should continue to monitor for additional cats and continue to TNR the new cats.   When foster or permanent homes are available, young kittens and friendly adults are removed and placed for adoption.

TNR is not only good for the cats, but it is good for the neighborhood too!  Spaying and neutering also greatly reduce nuisance behavior. Once the cats have been altered,  fighting, yowling and other noise associated with mating is eliminated. The foul odor caused by unaltered males spraying to mark territory disappears. The cats themselves are healthier and less likely to spread feline diseases. Meanwhile, rodent control is maintained by the cats' continued presence.
