The rainy, cold weather on Saturday, October 22nd was a reminder that many animals need shelter from the elements. On that day Faithful Friends Animal Society invited volunteers to build homeless cat shelters for non-domesticated cats so they can still stay warm and dry throughout the winter.

The volunteers included lots of families and students from the university of Delaware, who slogged away in the wet weather to build temporary houses made of storage bins, insulating sheathing, hay and duct tape.

“This is so encouraging because this is the biggest turnout of volunteers in the worst weather and they are staying to get the job done,” said Faithful Friends Director of Development and Public Relations Shannon O’Neill.

Many area residents maintain colonies of outdoor cats and make sure they are spayed and neutered. So FFAS says volunteer shelter build days helps the cat owners and their felines.
