4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
National Capital Area Spay & Neuter Center 
1001 L Street SE

During this workshop, we'll teach you how to construct a cat cottage from Rubbermaid-type storage bins. It will take about an hour to construct your cat cottages and you can come anytime between 2-7pm. We ask participants to bring two 18-gallon or larger bins (not clear plastic) -- one to take home to your own community cats and one to share with caregivers in need across the District. 

Please consider donating extra duct tape!
