Mission Statement

Mission Statement Our mission at Focus on Ferals is to assist community cats through a full management plan which focuses on spay/neuter and includes Trap-Neuter-Return for feral cats, a socialization and adoption program for feral kittens and friendly strays, and ongoing support for the people who care for these cats. Our vision is to achieve a No-Kill nation through the effective use of humane strategies, where every cat is treated with care and compassion.

Description

Trap-Neuter-Return

Feral Cat: having either been born in the wild and never having had human contact, or reverting to a wild state after having been abandoned; the great majority of feral cats cannot be tamed. Generally, attempts at taming or adoption of ferals prove to be fruitless. Our efforts can be realized one-hundred-fold if we do the greatest good for the greatest number of ferals by stopping the cycle of reproduction. Communities can help these forgotten cats by providing them with food, water, shelter, and spaying/neutering services through the "Trap-Neuter-Return" full management program. Briefly, TNR consists of the humane trapping, sterilization, and return of feral cats to their familiar habitat to be cared for daily by dedicated volunteers. Kittens under eight weeks and/or tame cats are placed into adoption programs.
