Gore said she felt the meeting was a great success. About 20 people turned out for the discussion. Several people came forward at the meeting to offer to take an active role in the effort, including Willie Norred and Mary Ann Durrer who has taken the job of treasurer.

 “We will continue to announce our meetings hopefully via the Times as well as individual emails,” Gore wrote in a follow-up email.

She said she and Buell plan to request to speak with the Civic Club on St. George Island and perhaps the homeowners’ association in the Plantation.

“We are in need of others who may be interested in becoming board members for our organization,” said Gore. “Our immediate goals are to continue to seek volunteer support; to look for seed money, through donations and/or people to assist us with fundraisers; to search for vehicles to utilize for transport of cats and/or kittens; to find a suitable air-conditioned storage room/facility for caged cats post-surgery; to earn money for the purchase of traps; and of course to become a non-profit/501(c)(3) organization.”

Penelope’s Pet Stop in Eastpoint has offered to help with housing cats post-surgery.

If you want to help by either volunteering, making a donation or adopting a cat, please call at Gore 323-0123 or Buell at 370-1125.
