A group of volunteers will be constructing shelters to help outdoor cats weather the winter during a workshop at Partnership Hall next month.
Sponsored by Laurel Cats, whose volunteers work to reduce the community cat population through spaying and neutering while also helping humans care for outdoor cats, the workshop will be held Saturday, Nov. 8 at 2 p.m. at Partnership Hall, adjacent to the Laurel Police Department at 811 Fifth St.
"The shelters are a fairly simple design and made out of readily available materials," Laurel Cats volunteer Helen Woods said in a statement. "Those who attend the workshop will not only go home with a shelter they made but go home with skills to build additional shelters for cats that they care for."
Space is limited and participants must preregister by calling 301-886-0161 or email@example.com. Members of the Laurel Cats' Caretaker Alliance program can attend at no cost. Nonmembers pay a $20 fee per shelter for materials. A list of tools required for the shelter assemblies will be provided at registration.
