Making Louisville the safest city in the country to be a community cat! Over 30,000 unowned community cats spayed and neutered!
Trap-Neuter-Return programs are the most effective way to stabilize and reduce the unowned cat population. It is also the most humane method. The basic strategy is to identify an unowned cat or colony of unowned cats, humanely trap the cat(s), spay/neuter them, and return them to their environment. The entire process takes from one to three days on average.
