How the Community Outreach Program Helps Homeless Cats
We are delighted to share the news that the Humane Society of Charles County was selected by the Petco Foundation and the Snyder Foundation for Animals to receive grants to help the “Friends Forever Community Outreach Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) Program” save more lives! Read more about the wonderful ways the Petco Foundation is helping shelters and rescues save more lives.
Our “Friends Forever Community Outreach TNR Program” has been implemented to help our communities in the Southern Maryland area deal with “free roaming community cats” or “feral” homeless cats, as people like to call them. Do you see cats in your neighborhood or around your business? These might be what we call “community cats.” WAIT… hold on, don’t trap them just yet! Our shelter can help you stop the growing population of community cats by getting these cats spayed/neutered, ear tipped to identify these cats as spayed/neutered, provide a rabies vaccine and health check, and then releasing them back to their original living area all for no cost. All we need from the community is a willingness to learn how to help stop the over population of homeless cats, and be their “friend forever” and advocate for the voiceless.

Do you have a “community cat” colony that you are caring for? Can you be a caretaker to a colony of “community cats”? If so, and would like to get them spay/neutered and returned back to the area they are familiar with, please fill out the below application and we will be in touch with you to trap, spay/neuter and return the cats to their original location.
