Scruffy came to us as an unfriendly feral a couple of years ago. We neutered him, brought him up to date on his shots, and released him into our feral colony, as he clearly preferred a life outdoors without people to life as a pet. Over time, Scruffy overcame his unfriendly ways and warmed up to our staff, who care for all of our ferals' basic needs year-round. He became an official mascot for the Franklin County Animal Shelter, coming out to greet us each morning and evening, taunting the non-feral adoptable cats from outside the windows of the First Cat Room, and sunning himself on the warm gravel of our back driveway from spring to fall. Sadly, Scruffy was found hit by a car near the shelter this past summer, and he is sorely missed. In Scruffy's honor, we'd like to start a Trap, Neuter, Release (TNR) project in his name. Funds raised will be used to fund TNR projects throughout Franklin County, Maine, to help folks with a growing feral problem prevent overpopulation. Thank you very much, on Scruffy's behalf, for helping us with this very important issue!
