For decades, the corner of Jefferson Davis Highway and Hood Drive in Spotsylvania, County Virginia served as the dumping ground for unwanted cats. Sadly, most of these cats went without food, lived without shelter, received no medical attention when injured, nor received love and affection. The property owner wanted the cats removed from the site, so Operation Hood volunteers spent almost 2 years caring for the cats while working to relocate them.Those that were feral or could not be tamed were released into “The Fence”, a protected and volunteer-maintained piece of property surrounded by a ‘Purr-fect’ cat fence that includes permanent insulated sheds, feeding stations, and outdoor litter boxes.
At present the colony on Hood Drive has been relocated. The current land owner has been cooperative in allowing Operation Hood volunteers to monitor the site until the land is sold. As of January 2018, our goals within Operation Hood have shifted to focusing on TNR (trap, neuter and return) Our mission is to work within our community to educate others on the purpose of TNR (trap, neuter and return) and why it is important. Operation Hood is also working with local shelters to assist with issues within the community to help make a difference in our area. Our desire to find homes for the cats that reside within The Fence has not ended. We continue to work to find homes for them even as we reach out to the community to assist with community TNR efforts.
As an all-volunteer organization, we cannot survive without your support. Donations are needed for food, medical attention, spaying/neutering, and vaccinations. All contributions will make it possible for us to continue this life saving work.
Thank you for your generosity, kindness and support.
