Whiskers Rescue is dedicated to spaying and neutering feral, untamed cats and releasing them back to their environment to live out their lives without contributing to the stray cat population. Feral cats are cats who are born outdoors, with no human contact, and as such do not make suitable pets. Without any human intervention, however, they are doomed to live short, miserable lives producing litter after litter of kittens who will experience the same fate. Trapping these cats, neutering and vaccinating them, then returning them to their own territory is the only effective method of helping. The cats are provided with shelter and food and the colony is monitored for new arrivals, to prevent the cycle from starting all over again.
