TNR, trap-neuter-return, is a nationwide trend to reduce the overpopulation of homeless cats. It reduces the number of cats euthanized in shelters. Do it alone, with a friend or with a group. Save a Stray will loan traps, teach you how to set the trap. Next, check the trap often. Once a cat is trapped, the cat goes to the vet to be neutered, cost is covered using donations. Once neutered, they are released where they were found. You donate whatever amount of time works for you.
Save a Stray will provide traps and instructions on how to set and check the trap. Save a Stray covers the cost to neuter using donations.
In Mobile County, Alabama, there are thousands of cats that have no home. Consider that:
> A kitten can get pregnant as early as 4 months of age.
> In Mobile's climate, cats can breed all year long.
> The average litter is 3-6 kittens.
The Mobile County Animal Shelter stopped accept healthy cats/kittens. Citizens who live in the county have nowhere to turn if a cat shows up in their yard. Cats are left outdoors, reproducing constantly.
Well intentioned citizens who feed cats often fail to get them neutered. Feeding them actually enhances reproduction. The number of cats increases exponentially. TNR is crucial to stopping this pattern.
Contact your Mobile County Commissioners and Mayor/City Council to demand the Mobile county & city shelters adopt aggressive TNR programs.
