Spirits Place, in Saint Albans, Maine, is a shelter devoted to the care of community cats. But it’s also a place devoted to the care of the community. Although they spay and neuter cats and help low income families with the care of their companion animals, they also educate.
Local high school students learn about and help care for the cats as well as manage their Facebook page. And some even make the pottery Spirits Place sells to help support their shelter. Special needs individuals from the community also regularly come to help with the cats, finding a place in the community where they are welcome and useful.
When Spirits Place reached out to us for help with a large cat colony in a local trailer park, we were honored to be able to support their efforts. They were able to alter 35 cats and place 20 kittens in other shelters for adoption.
