Saturday, July 1 at 12:30 p.m. Animal Rights Program. The New Jersey Animal Rights Alliance stops by as a part of the “Paws, Claws, Scales and Tales” summer reading program to discuss their organization and their Feral Cat Program.

A "feral" cat is one who has reverted in some degree to a wild state. They originate from former domestic cats who were lost or abandoned and then learned to live outdoors or in environments involving little human contact, such as warehouses, factories or abandoned buildings. In most cases, feral cats are not completely wild because they still depend on people for their food source, whether it's a caretaker who comes by once or twice a day, a dumpster outside a restaurant, garbage cans, or the like.
