Purchase a winter shelter and keep stray cats warm and dry. Many local places will not ship winter shelters because it's too costly. Call to ask if the shelters are in stock and arrange to buy them at one of these locations. You can also purchase cat shelters on Amazon or at Chewy.

Do-it-yourself shelters: Winter shelter is critical for feral and stray cats living in frigid climates and can help them thrive despite the low temperatures. Listed here are mostly examples of inexpensive, do-it-yourself shelters that can be built in a matter of hours or less.
There are just too many feral cats to ever find homes for them all. For those ferals, Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) is the best alternative. And, after the return, as they live the La Vie Boheme (outdoors), it is our responsibility to make sure they are as healthy and as comfortable as possible.
