The Rehoboth Board of Selectmen in February 2016 voted to approve a Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) program in Rehoboth and to accept the offer of Rehoboth Animal Advocates (RAA) organization (formerly the Friends of Rehoboth Animal Shelter) to conduct the TNR program.
Rehoboth Animal Advocates does not receive any financial aid from the town of Rehoboth.
The Animal Advocates operate the TNR program independently of Animal Control and the town shelter. The shelter will take in only the cats or kittens that are deemed adoptable after being trapped. Most feral/community cats are unsocialized and cannot go into homes. Animal Control is involved with rabies quarantine cases.
Our Mission Statement
In 2014, we started out as the Friends of the Rehoboth Animal Shelter. In 2016, we changed our name to Rehoboth Animal Advocates to better reflect our new mission statement which is:
· To provide a Trap/Neuter/Return Program (TNR) in Rehoboth.
· To promote awareness of the feral cat population and its effect on animals, environment, and residents.
· To promote awareness of care and support for abandoned and neglected animals.
· To support and help shelter animals.
