Reducing the population of stray & feral cats using Trap, Neuter, Return. A circumstance of Trap, Neuter, Return is trapping friendly stray felines who can be offered for adoption once their vet work is completed. These felines are fostered and provided with food, water, shelter and follow-up vaccinations, deworming, grooming and when necessary, medications. More often than not, kittens are involved in this work, and we take in those kittens, providing appropriate care for them until they are adopted. This often involves treating ill kittens and taking care of neonates (bottle babies.) Likewise, when we have foster space available and are contacted about friendly stray cats and/or kittens, we will assume responsibility for them and offer them for adoption.
We are a group of individuals seeking to better the lives of feral cats in colonies by TNR & giving adoptable stray cats & kittens the chance to be adopted & live safely indoors. Before being shown for adoption, every cat or kitten is spayed/neutered, age-appropriately rabies vaccinated, has at least one (usually 2 or more) FVRCP vaccinations, wormed, tested for FeLV & microchipped. We are also an advocate for FIV positive cats & encourage potential adopters to consider adopting an FIV positive cat.
