The Euclid Beach Feral Cat Project has been practicing TNR (trap, neuter, release) since its inception in 2009. To date, the Project has assisted nearly one thousand cats! The accomplishments of the EBFCP during 2012 include the "TNR" of 129 cats, the surrender of 175 cats to the Cleveland APL, 11 adoptions by the EBFCP itself, and the birth of only 2 kittens in the monitored, feral community! This represents the saving of over 730 cats from the streets of North Collinwood areas including Wildwood Marina, The Euclid Beach Mobile Home Park, the state park pier, and Euclid Beach Villa Apartments. These numbers also reflect the spay and neutering of 233 cats. To give you an idea of how many cats this project is actually saving consider these statistics: The average number of litters a fertile cat can produce in one year is 3. The average number of kittens in a feline litter is 4–6. In seven years, one female cat and her offspring can theoretically produce 420,000 cats. Only 1 in 12 of those 420,000 cats born find a home. These are facts and the work of The Euclid Beach Feral Cat Project cuts down on the numbers in these statistics dramatically.
The primary focus of the Project is the Euclid Beach area where cats and kittens are routinely "dumped". The EBFCP now safely and securely houses and cares, daily, for over 128 - now healthy - residents. The Euclid Beach Feral Cat Project works closely with the Cleveland Animal Protective League to find homes for those friendly enough to be adopted. Those that remain as residents of the Euclid Beach area are strictly monitored, and provided with food, shelter and medical care. The dedication of those that run the EBFCP is overwhelming, unfaltering and constant.
