Reducing the Killing
To achieve our goal of reducing the number of community cats and companion animals euthanized, we support and advocate for the following:
**Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) Programs
**High-Volume, Low Cost Spay/Neuter Programs
**Barn Cat Programs
**Pet Food Pantries
**Comprehensive Adoption Programs
Free Roaming Cats
A feral cat is unsocialized and fearful of people, which makes him a poor candidate for adoption.
A stray cat once lived in a home, but was lost or abandoned and forced to survive on his own. Strays can usually be quickly re-socialized and adopted, if homes are available.
A pet cat is a companion animal with an identifiable owner and home.
A free-roaming cat lives mainly outdoors and spends the majority of time unconfined.
A community cat is unowned and therefore belongs to the community.
What is TNVR ?
TNVR programs spay and neuter cats to reduce or eliminate reproduction, vaccinate cats against rabies and provide an ear tip (the universal sign of a vetted feral cat).
Why spay / neuter ?
Reduce the number of homeless pets killed
Improve your pet's health
Reduce unruly behavior
Save on the cost of pet care
