(PRESS RELEASE) BALTIMORE, MD – Sterling “Trapking” Davis is one of few black men in cat rescue who goes all over metro Atlanta to Trap Neuter and Return (TNR) stray and feral cats so they don’t produce more kittens. TNR is the only humane way to control cat overpopulation and is the mission of Davis’ nonprofit, Trapking Humane Cat Solutions.

With the help of the nonprofit Companions and Animals for Reform and Equity (CARE) and ArmOR Hand Protective Gloves among others, the Atlanta resident and nationally known cat rescuer is going to attempt to set a world record for the number of cats trapped, neutered (or spayed) and returned in a 24-hour period. This challenge is not just about Davis, but his goal of inspiring other animal rescue organizations and cat rescuers across the country to beat his record to stop cat overpopulation in their communities.

ArmOR Hand Gloves has donated protective gloves for Davis and staff as they commence their cat wrangling this weekend.

“We are so happy we could help Sterling and his staff in accomplishing this very worthwhile mission,” said Pittsburgh, PA-based veterinarian Laura Catena DVM, inventor and founder of ArmOR Hand Protective Gloves. The ArmOR hand gloves provide handlers and caregivers the protection and dexterity needed to properly restrain and perform procedures. These form-fitting gloves are comfortable and durable while providing protection from bites and scratches from finger tips to elbows.

The challenge will begin late Friday night at 12:00 a.m., May 21, with Davis setting traps in neighborhoods all over metro Atlanta. Over the next 24 hours, the African American cat advocate will pick up the cats as they are humanely trapped, and bring them to Atlanta Humane Society and Paces Ferry Veterinary Clinic, where they will be spayed or neutered Saturday during the day and then returned back to their neighborhoods after a recovery period.

As an African American male who loves cats, Davis is an anomaly. That’s why he has a special message to the black community: “You don’t lose cool points for compassion.” Davis’ nonprofit and CARE want to let African American youth know there’s a place for them in animal welfare. They too, can save animals.

At the end of the trapping event, CARE will donate 300 brand new traps to cat rescue organizations all over the country, where they will be given to rescuers who often do this lifesaving work with minimal resources.

CARE is a nonprofit dedicated to this work, especially when it comes to an equitable and community-based workforce in animal welfare The event is also a celebration of CARE’s one-year anniversary, as one of only two African American led nonprofits championing for more diversity in the animal welfare industry. (Davis’s is the other.)

Trapking Humane Cat Solutions focuses on educating, assisting, and doing TNR and community cat management. Its mission is to change the stereotypes of not only men in cat rescue, but also bridge the gap in communication between black communities and predominantly white animal welfare organizations.
