Ohlone Humane Society is seeking volunteers from the tri-city area (Fremont, Newark, and Union City) to help community cats.
We have a volunteer team who work together each week to TNR (trap neuter return) community cats. The TNR manager sets the schedule and each volunteer helps with any of the following: the actual trapping, provide overnight shelter aka pre-house, take to the vet, pick up from the vet, recover 1-3 nights and return them to their respective community homes/colonies.
You will receive hands on training from an experienced volunteer. Knowing that you are helping to reduce the population of Stray/ community cats, rescuing kittens, reducing euthanized and sick cats is very rewarding.
Please contact us for more information or with any questions.What is Trap-Neuter-Return(TNR)? Trap-neuter-return (TNR) involves trapping all the cats in a colony, getting them spayed/neutered, adopting out the kittens and friendly cats, then returning the wild adults to their territory and providing them with food and shelter. TNR eliminates or significantly reduces the noise from fighting, odor from spraying, and more litters of kittens. This progressive approach is fast becoming the preferred method of street cat population control across the nation.
