Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have decided to dissolve South Shore Felines Inc. It has been a difficult decision, but we will terminate all operations effective Tuesday, September 30, 2014.
We would like to thank all of our friends and rescue partners for their time, financial support and efforts to help the numerous abandoned pets, the free roaming community cats, and the caretakers that see to their everyday needs. We were successful in providing needed care and aid to many hundreds of cats and kittens in our community over the past years. We wish all the current rescue groups much success as they carry on this important mission.

Making a Positive Difference in the Lives of Cats and the South Shore Area Community

South Shore Felines' mission is to humanely reduce the population of Community Cats via
education and Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). We are not a shelter to accept cats from the public.
Over decades of experience with multiple methods around the world, the common approaches of do nothing, feeding bans, and trap and remove have proven to be ineffective. The only proven approach to date is Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR).
TNR involves colony management within targeted geographic areas, spay/neuter, rabies vaccination, distemper vaccination, and ear-tipping (removing the left ear tip to indicate a TNR cat). Over time, with continued monitoring, the colony is substantially reduced if not eliminated.
