The Problem

The outcomes we envision include neighborhood youth learning about cats; feeling good about helping neighborhood animals; and learning about the veterinary and animal welfare professions.

Our Plan

The youth plan to: * plant cat nip and cat grass seeds in their neighborhood * visit the veterinarian to observe surgeries and care for animals * trap the stray and feral cats in their neighborhood, then take care of the stray cats * bring unwanted cats to the shelter for adoption then follow them until they find a home * build winter homes for feral cats * write a book about their summer experiences helping animals * have a marked impact on their community
