Cat Trapper with TNVR Program

Save to Favorites

The Fayette Humane Society

Sample trapping site
Even chickens get involved!

Need volunteers-mainly trappers--for the Fayette Humane Society's cat program called TNVR (Trap/Neuter/Vaccinate/Release). The purpose of the program is to catch community cats (those that have no owner), get them fixed and vaccinated, then return them to their outdoor homes. The goal is to reduce the future cat population. Trap one cat and you've met our goal--instant gratification! Plus no experience required-you can shadow an experienced trapper until you’re comfortable going "solo". Volunteers can help by doing any piece of the following or, better yet, do it all:

1. Talk to feeders of the cats to understand the situation (location; number of cats; who feeds them; age of kittens (to determine if they weigh enough for the spay/neuter)
2. Make appointments with the clinics
3. Trap the cats
4. Harbor cats that night and for one night post-op
5. Drive them to clinic in the morning and pick up in the evening (OR arrange for one of our organization's other volunteers to do the transporting)
6. Return the cats to the trapping site and release them
7. Track data for each cat trapped (sex; age; etc.)
8. Disinfect the traps
9. Start over!
