We regret to inform the Cat Team 7 community that, effectively immediately, we will be pausing operations on Naval Station Norfolk. The additional professional and personal obligations recently taken on by our all-volunteer board members, in combination with restrictions and safety measures associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, have forced us to temporarily step back from our activities on base. We remain committed to the welfare of our beloved Navy cats and are working with the NSPCA as well as the Norfolk municipal shelter (NACC) to help abandoned or stray animals in our absence.
Our sincere thanks go out to all of the generous supporters and volunteers who have made the work we do a possibility. With your help, we have rescued, rehabilitated, and rehomed hundreds of cats and kittens from NSN, helped to slow population growth within the colony, and put an end to the suffering of gravely ill or injured felines. We look forward to resuming operations once it has been deemed safe for all those involved.
