Planned Feralhood is working as agent to the Marin Humane Society to remove the feral cats from the Leroy Martinelli Ranch. The Point Reyes National Seashore has taken possession of the land as of July 1rst. The tenants are gone and trailers have been removed. We need to rescue these cats in the next two weeks. They have already been spayed and neutered by Planned Feralhood years ago, and we have fed and monitored them for the last decade. We need back yards or barns to relocate them to. We need donations to finance the medical care and testing they will need before relocation. They will be held in Planned Feralhood's care until relocation placements can be found. Please donate to Planned Feralhood, PO Box 502, Point Reyes Station, CA 94956. This will be a very costly endeavor. Donations are tax deductible. Volunteers to help in the trapping and transporting, setup of holding kennels, and care would be deeply valued.
