Trap, Spay/Neuter, Return
This process helps manage the number of community cats.
Colonies are set up for the cats who are unable to be socalized and adopted.
We love to see pets stay with their families, thus we are able to assist with the transport of family animals.
TNR is the most effective way to control community cat populations. Unlike humans every time a cat gives birth they are giving birth to mulitple kittens which allows the population to increase at an exponential rate. The image below is a great visual example of why the population increases so quickly.
This entire process begins with one unspayed female cat, who WILL be found by a local tomcat. In just one year this unspayed female and her offspring will yield about 95 cats. The average lifespan for these outside cats is 5-7 years. You may think it is just one cat but that one cat turns into 95 which then leds to many more. Please join us in our efforts to control this population by spaying and neutering these outdoor cats.
Trap: Humanely trap the cat
Neuter: Take the cat in the trap to a veterinarian or clinic to be spayed/neutered, vacinated, and ear-tipped.
Return: After the cats have recovered from surgery, return them to the location they were trapped.
A cat colony is a place where communitiy cats live. These cats have free roam of the area and are mostly feral cats. They depend on a caregiver to provide shelter, food and water. Such colonies help manage the amount of feral cats euthonized in animal shelters. The population size of such colonies are managed through TNR to prevent the cats from reproducing.
If you sit in the driver's seat and your paws cannot reach the pedals give us a call! We can help make arrangements to manage the population of community cats by assisting in their transportation to the vet/clinic.
