January 25, 2014

At 71 years old, while most seniors are out sitting on the porch Melonie Kinert the President of Islands Feral Cat Project is out and about trapping cats for spaying and neutering, transporting cats, feeding feral and community cats, fundraising, informing the public about feral and community cats, she does all the paperwork, accounting, recruiting and anything else our organization needs.

Melonie started Islands Feral Cat Project when she saw the need to help feral and community cats in keeping the cat population down.
What Melonie does not only affects the Islands of Savannah, Georgia but all of Chatham County.

IFCP is a non-profit organization that helps the feral cat communities by:
loaning traps for the capture of wild, sick, and injured ferals. We give advise and lessons on trapping, and offering advise on the care of feral colonies. We arrange for the Spay/Neuter of our little friends, which in turn helps keep the colonies from multiplying. We also arrange treatment of sick and injured ferals.

Melonie Kinert is the recipient of the 2013 "34th Annual" Volunteer Recognition Award Presented by the United Way
