Tony and Jean Pike are an integral part of our Foster Program. They not only foster our adult cats but a great number of kittens each year. In 2019, they generously donated the use of a trailer for our Mobile Adoption Center. Tony installed custom built cages in a fully appointed trailer to house our cats and kittens that are transported to adoption events and festivals throughout Lake County. In this way we can reach out and educate a great number of people about our Trap-Neuter-Return and adoption programs.
The cats and kittens in our care come through our own trapping efforts. In 2020, Painesville Township created a sponsorship program to assist with the cost of spaying and neutering stray and feral cats in the TWP. In the same year, Tony’s dad and best friend, Roger, passed away. He lived next door and was a daily presence in the lives of Tony, Jean, and the foster cats and kittens. Lake County and Ashtabula Community Cats designates $2.50 for every adoption for the Painesville Township Sponsorship Program in memory of Roger L. Pike.
Donations can be made to the Painesville Township Collaborative TNR Program
