     Trap Neuter and Release Goals:

  • Reduce the population of FREE ROAMING (FERAL) Cats through SPAY/NEUTER to prevent the reproduction of unadoptable/unwanted kittens
  • Reduce the number of stray cats dropped off at animal shelters
  • Educate the public about Trap Neuter Release (TNR) and create a network of volunteers to facilitate the program

Feral Facts:

  • Virtually 100% of feral cats taken to kill shelters are euthanized.
  • The domestic cat population is estimated to be 82 million cats. The feral or free roaming cats may be as high.
  • While 82% of domestic cats are spayed or neutered – only 3% of feral cats are sterilized
  • Most of the 4.5 million cats and kittens euthanized in the U.S. each year are offspring from free roaming cats.
