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

**Rescue Groups

**Foster Care

**Comprehensive Adoption Programs

**Pet Retention

TNR, Spay/Neuter

Free Roaming Cats

Definitions:

 

  • feral cat is unsocialized and fearful of people, which makes him a poor candidate for adoption.

  • 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.

  • 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
