Report for duty on your designated day; pick up several cats in their crates with a list of addresses where each cat is to be released. 6. Once at the location, open the crate in a safe area away from the street to deter the cat from running in the street and into potential danger. 7. Return empty crates to the shelter in the designated return location with the required paperwork.
