Some TNR groups will help - it's just a question of finding them, and it can take some work. We couldn't find anyone to help us, so we did it ourselves. Initially I got advice from people here, and we borrowed a trap from the local vet.
As you can see, I joined the site in 2002. Since then, I honestly don't know how many cats we've rescued. We trapped and paid ourselves to have 20+ cats spayed and neutered from this place alone. We fostered a number of kittens, and developed a foster network amont the vet staff. We got to know all the local vets.
But neither hubby nor I ever had a cat as a pet, and now we have 6. The last 4 were all kittens that couldn't really be adopted out because they were too sick or had behavior problems.
Once you get involved - it's hard not to keep going.
It can be SO rewarding, sometimes SO frustrating - but that's what's so great about having these forums. There's people to answer questions, provide support and encouragement, and to cheer you along for successes, too.
Where in NJ do you live? Hubby's very ill these days and we haven't been doing much trapping except right around us. But we're in NW NJ, in Warren County.
We were just looking for foster homes for a mom that just had kittens (we were taking her to the vet to get spayed. We were pretty sure she was pregnant, but having rescued for so long, if she wasn't too far along we were going to have her spayed anyway). ....but she was too far along. The morning after we got her to the vet, she had kittens.
But I've had 3 responses now from people willing to foster her (I e-mailed 22 rescue orgs). Depending upon where you are, I'm willing to bet they'd be willing to pick up and foster the momma and those kitties.
I haven't turned down any of the offers yet - I want to make sure the fist person that contacted me about it is going to do it. So your timing her is perfect.
Unless you decide you want us to talk you through rescuing them, bringing them inside, and fostering them, and how best to work to get them adopted out.
(It's actually pretty easy at first, especially if you work for a mid-sized firm. Almost everyone who likes cats where we used to work now has one of "our" cats!
