Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR)
T.N.R. is the ONLY proven Humane and Effective method of addressing our community cat populations here in Warren County. This allows the cats to live a long, happy life in the environment that they are comfortable with, while preventing the colony from reproducing.
TNR involves setting traps in order to catch outdoor, unowned and unsocialized cats. Once trapped, they are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and released back to their colony. This is a service that we proudly offer to property owners who are struggling to manage a growing cat population.
Did you know that kittens can become pregnant at as young as 4-months old? And that an unspayed female can have as many as 180 kittens during her lifetime?
A successful TNR program requires help from the property owners to track progress and maintain traps. It also requires funding! Our cost for surgeries alone is $75 per animal, not including labor.
To apply for help, begin by filling out an application and submitting it to the shelter.
