The number of feral cats in Georgia and the rest of the US is growing at an exponential rate. On average a fertile cat can have 2 litters a year each containing an average of 2-4 kittens. If those 2-4 kittens have kittens, that would be 8-16 kittens, and from them 32-64 kittens and so on.
We found that many of the people that Daffy’s assists are also trying to care for and feed several feral cats and kittens, but have no idea how to trap them to get them spayed and neutered. Beyond just trapping them, the average cost of a spay and neuter is $75-$100. After the cats are trapped, they also need to be transported, fed and cared for and watched for a coupe days after the procedure to make sure everything is alright. Just imagine the average person with a family and job trying to take care of 10 cats in humane traps for 3 days.
We found that for most people, the cost of the spay and neuter wasn’t the problem, it was the lack of know-how. So we began the Backyard Sanctuary and set up classes to teach people how to safely trap and release feral cats and kittens We work with vets and clinics to get the lowest possible prices and we rent out traps so people don’t have to buy them. Even if people can’t do it themselves, we have ways of helping trap, care for, and release feral cats.

Daisy’s Doghouse was created over years of research and disappointment that there were no dog kennels on-site at homeless or domestic violence shelters in Georgia. After searching for assistance, we finally found a domestic violence group who saw the need as we did. After a short meeting and a visit at the shelter, we set plans to donate our first 600 sq. ft. dog kennel, 3 runs and doghouses on site at the shelter.
During construction we found out about a lady who attempted to enter a local facility with her dogs but she was turned down due to restrictions. She made the ultimate sacrifice to return to her dogs in order to keep them safe and with her. Daisy’s Doghouse and the shelter decided to dedicate the kennel in her name and so upon completion, we added a plaque with her name. This is a small thing for such a brave woman, but it shows that she will not be forgotten for her brave sacrifices and the sad circumstances surrounding it. We hope to continue this program where we are needed.

Daffy’s P.A.S.T. helps out in the event of a natural disasters with temporary assistance to those in need. We have a 20′ trailer that has crates, food, supplies, traps, tarps, and misc. gear to help when the need arises. In 2009, the worst flood in over a hundred years hit Georgia. West of Atlanta was hit especially hard, with several areas being completely under water including one of our soup kitchens. With the assistance of some supplies from Petco Foundation, we were there to help those in need.
We coordinated groups in the area to assist us with trapping lost pets, providing temporary shelter, supplying thousands of pounds of pet food, as well as helping to vet injured pets. We assisted over 100 pets to return home or to get them adopted through a local rescue group. We also worked with local animal controls as well as attended the FEMA, GEMA, and VOAD meeting dealing with this disaster. We will continue to work with these and other organizations when it comes to natural disasters in our area.
