Cat Transport
Load 'em up!

As part of our Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) activities, we are looking for volunteers to help transport cats to/from the spay-neuter clinics that we use. We need volunteers to assist in both the "morning runs" (usually 7AM to 10AM) and the "afternoon runs" (usually 4PM to 7PM). Occasionally these times are extended if conditions warrant. You need to have a vehicle that can carry 10 cats in traps/carriers at a minimum, 20 cat volume is preferred. For the morning runs, you will need to review the paperwork which is to be delivered to the spay-neuter clinic. When doing the afternoon runs, you will need to review the paperwork you receive from the spay-neuter clinic as well. You must be at least 21 years of age, agree to follow all Feral Fixers and clinic procedures and be willing to sign a waiver.

If you are interested, please visit our website (www.feralfixers.org) and click on the Want to Help? link at the top. There you will find a link to an online Questionnaire that you can complete and submit to Feral Fixers.

Mission Statement

Feral Fixers is an organization dedicated to practicing and promoting Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) in DuPage County, Illinois.

Description

Our Goals:

(a) To educate local governments and the public on the benefits of a Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) program in DuPage County.

(b) To humanely control the population of feral cats in DuPage County, Illinois, primarily through a Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) program.

(c) To provide educational resources and other assistance to feral cat colony caretakers and local veterinarians.

(d) To provide coaching on TNR methods to feral cat colony caretakers and others interested in furthering the objectives of TNR.

(e) To work in cooperation with other animal welfare organizations interested in furthering the objectives of TNR in DuPage County, Illinois.

(f) To promote the importance of spaying and neutering for all cats, feral or non-feral.

Our Long-term goal: To reduce both the number of cats euthanized and the feral cat population in DuPage County while improving the quality of life for both cats and humans through the high-volume use of low-cost or free spay-neuter services to sterilize feral, semi-feral, stray and domestic cats.
