Community Cats Fund (TNR)
Our Community Cats Fund provides a necessary service to our community and the cats within our community.
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is an effective and humane approach to meeting the needs of community members, caring for the cats in our community, and reducing the burden on shelters and animal control to handle overpopulation. Each cat that receives a spay or neuter prevents countless litters of kittens from entering the sheltering system, which for many shelters results in euthanasia. These same cats that receive this procedure, as well as essential vaccinations, live significantly healthier and happier lives once returned to their colonies. While under anesthesia, each cat receives an identifying ear-tip to signal that they have already been sterilized and are part of a colony. Ear-tips also help to distinguish stray cats from community cats at a distance, furthering the beneficial impact of TNR. In addition to basic TNR services, we aim to be a resource to those in need of assistance with concerns related to community cats. We are happy to provide advice and direct you to the appropriate resources if the assistance you need is outside of our range of care.
