In September 2004, Linda's Feral Cat Assistance was formed by Linda Bryant to work on behalf of the stray cat population in Woodside.
Dedicated volunteers who are experienced in the TNR (Trap/Neuter/Release) process for feral cats, return the animals to monitored locations,
assist Linda in her work to alleviate the suffering of feral cats. The good news is that the population of abandoned animals in the area
has been markedly reduced because the efforts to eliminate the number of kittens, mainly through the TNR program, have been a great success.
However, stray cats and other throwaways continue to roam the streets of Woodside; they need to be trapped and neutered and, whenever possible,
adopted into stable homes.
The mission of Linda's Feral Cat Assistance is to reduce the feral cat population and eliminate the pain and suffering of the many unwanted
cats who manage to survive on the streets-these animals are frequently the victims of disease, inclement weather, traffic accidents and other
mishaps and suffer needlessly from neglect. The LFCA also rescues rabbits and finds suitable and secure homes for them.
Linda's Feral Cat Assistance is an independent, not-for-profit organization devoted to the rescue and temporary fostering of feral
cats before returning them to their original locations, and finding homes for kittens and cats who are socialized and adoptable.
In compliance with the TNR mandate, any animal that is captured and released is assured of shelter, food and monitoring on a daily
basis by the LFCA volunteers and are provided with medical treatment whenever required.
Linda Bryant is certified in the TNR program by Neighborhood Cats and the ASPCA. She is also a member of the Mayor's Alliance
of New York, which is working towards the implementation of 'no-kill' legislation for adoptable companion animals in New York State.
The last Sunday of every month, LCFA sponsors the ASPCA's mobile spay and neuter clinic, which provides a free service for people with
feral or companions animals that require neutering. Medical tests and vaccinations are also available at a minimal cost.
If you are interested in this program, please call Linda Bryant (718/205-1792) for an appointment.
Please contact Linda's Feral Cat Assistance for further information about our organization and assistance with the feral cats in your neighborhood.
Our not-for-profit organization, is dedicated to care and protect these abandoned, feral and stray cats. We hope to reduce over population and disease by preventing the birth of unwanted litters through TRN (Trap/Spay/Neuter/Release). Once neutered the cats are returned to their outside homes, where we can monitor their health and make sure they have shelter and food.
If you would like more information, or need help with the feral cats in your neighborhood please contact us.
