Checking In

One aspect of TNR is colony management which involves a designated Caregiver who provides food, shelter and monitoring on a regular basis. The Coalition assists Caregivers in Beacon with the making and maintenance of winter shelters. Shelters range in materials and design and can be handmade or pre-made, but the fundamental elements remain the same : stable, insulated and weatherproof. It is important to check the shelters regularly, especially when extreme weather conditions are present. The Coalition made its rounds yesterday after the big snow storm, checking and clearing off snow. All the structures were in good shape, with this shelter offering a surprise inside (a cat).
