Trap, Neuter, and Return Feral Cats
Feral cats exist in the shadows of just about every community. These homeless cats usually live short, miserable lives without consistent food, water, shelter or veterinary care. Living in colonies with other feral cats, they struggle in a world filled with threats; many don't survive beyond one year.
Feral cats are a direct result of our failure to spay and neuter our pets. Millions of stray and homeless pets are euthanized in animal shelters each year.
Trap, Neuter and Return programs are recommended by most animal organizations as the most humane and effective approach for improving the lives of feral cats while reducing their colonies. As part of these programs, feral cats are humanely trapped, taken to a veterinarian for spaying or neutering, and then released where volunteers commit to providing them with adequate food, water, shelter and monitoring.
Trap, Neuter and Return programs are not without their critics ― most notably, those concerned about protecting birds and other wildlife ― but partnership efforts have shown that collaboration is possible.
Feral cat success stories abound, and the future is looking brighter for stray cats everywhere. But a world free of homeless pets depends on the help of caring volunteers like you.
