The Problem

Community Cats need to be spayed and neutered to stop the cycle of kitten births outside. Life on the streets is hard! Cats kill native wildlife and suffer from poor welfare conditions outdoors.

Our Plan

Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate and Return or Catch, Spay, and Release. Whichever you want to call it, we will help unowned cats outdoors. We will humanely and safely catch the cats, have them spayed/neutered through local non-profit organizations or our County Animal Care and Control where they will also be vaccinated against diseases and microchipped. The adult cats that are fearful of humans will then be released back to where they were found to control the local population. Any kittens able to become indoor cats will be fostered and adopted out. If you would like more information about how YOU can help community cats in your neighborhood, comment and get in touch! We would be happy to help you find local resources in your area OR if you live nearby we can work together!
