- Humanely reduce the free-roaming cat population through the practice of Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR).
- Ensure and promote the cats’ overall wellness by providing assistance for their basic needs of food, water, and shelter.
- Respond to their medical needs by addressing injury or illness and apply preventable treatments.
- Work with local authorities to adopt humane, fair practices and laws concerning free-roaming cats.
- Educate the general public on free-roaming cat behaviors and their basic needs to learn how to co-exist, while advocating free-roaming cats’ ethical and humane treatment.
- Eliminate unnecessary killing of un-owned, free-roaming cats.
ECFCC cares about the over-all physical needs of the animals we serve. As important as spaying and neutering is, we reach beyond that to encompass all of their basic needs in order to ensure a good quality of life. Our vision began over 10 years ago, to create an environment where all creatures are treated with respect and dignity, to provide the resources necessary to ensure that their needs are met, and to bring our community together to accomplish that.
In the spring of 2018, the ECFCC purchased a beautifully wooded 3 acre parcel of property on which to build. We chose a location that we could develop into a type of nature center for all to enjoy.
Our building project will create educational opportunities to teach people about the importance of co-existing with other wildlife. A learning center where people can come and learn, get the facts, and dispel any untrue myths. This center will also offer items for people to help take care of animals; such as outdoor shelter housing, feeding stations, and flea and parasite preventatives.
Further goals are to offer wellness clinics, such as microchipping and vaccinations; and low cost spay/neuter capabilities.
