Help for Feral Cats

We are ALWAYS willing to help our community care for feral cats, after all, that is where we started. Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate, Return (TNVR) Let’s make sure these cats are cared for.

TNVR a/k/a TNR

Our extra-low cost feral cat package includes spay/neuter surgery, rabies & FVRCP (distemper combination) vaccines, a brief exam, subcutaneous fluids and an ear tip, which is a cut across the top of the left ear to easily denote the cat has been spayed/neutered and vaccinated. Under this program, ear tips are required; there are no exceptions. In addition to the ear tip, your feral cat will receive a small green tattoo on the abdomen, which readily indicates that he/she has been spayed/neutered and negates any question otherwise.

All ferals must arrive in a humane trap with a clean towel lining the bottom and a sheet covering the trap. We require that only one cat is in each trap and that food has been removed by midnight the night before surgery. If a cat is deemed friendly by our staff, the price will be adjusted to the regular spay/neuter price.

Responsibility of a Colony Caregiver

Becoming a caregiver is a large responsibility. You need to monitor the colony for signs of disease, new cats (that need sterilization), and to make sure that their body condition is adequate (they are getting enough food). In addition, you have to coordinate a surgery schedule, set up traps, and make sure you have adequate funds for their care. We understand how emotionally and physically difficult your work is.
