Seeing stray cats?

The humane, effective way to control the number of community cats is trap-neuter-return (TNR). Community cats are the feral and stray free-roaming cats in your neighborhood. Together we can control their population and help save cats' lives.

Benefits of helping stray cats:

  • Allows spayed/neutered, vaccinated, ear-tipped cats to be returned to their outdoor area to live out their lives. (Ear-tipping is a universal symbol of a spayed/neutered cat.)
  • Humanely controls the community cat population so there are fewer cats over time.
  • Reduces the number of cats killed by keeping these cats out of municipal shelters.
  • Minimizes nuisance behaviors like spraying, fighting, howling and roaming.
  • Improves the health of cats and neighborhood relations.
