Fourth Quarter 2013 Nail Clipping Recipient: Cat Rescue of Marlborough and Hudson (CaRMaH)
CaRMaH is a volunteer organization that maintains a foster care adoption program with regularly scheduled Meow Mixers. Formerly known as Metrowest Animal Awareness Society (MAAS), it was established in 2002 in response to the feral and homeless cat population in Marlborough, Hudson and surrounding towns. MAAS began a trap, neuter, return (TNR) for these cats with feeding stations where the cats are fed daily.
Other major programs include a feral trap, vaccinate, neuter, and release program, a foster home program for healthy and special needs cats and kittens, a citizen foster program for residents needing to rehome their cats, a community education program featuring cat ambassadors, and a barn program for feral relocation. Since their inception, they have placed over 1,000 cats and kittens into homes, and have spayed or neutered over 500 feral cats. Learn more at carmah.org.
