Trap, Neuter & Return (TNR) Program

One of our goals is to reduce the feral cat population in central VA by 10%.  Trap, neuter, release (TNR) is the most effective and humane method of working towards this reduction and involves humanely trapping feral cats, neutering them and providing vaccines, and then returning them to their outdoor homes once healed. In order to achieve this goal, we will:


  • Work in partnership with local veterinary offices and clinics to have feral cats TNR'd so that cat colonies come as close to possible as 100% sterile.  Aside from financial assistance, this includes transportation of cats and providing shelter to healing cats after surgery


  • Educate cat colony caretakers on TNR 


  • Provide assistance to colony caretakers around food and shelter as needed


  • Make an effort to find caretakers for colonies who are without one


  • Build and distribute feral cat shelters


  • Identify and bring outdoor kittens and non-feral cats into foster care for socialization and eventual adoption


  • Keep a record of colonies in central VA so as to keep up with future support that might be needed


  • Make annual estimates of reduction or remediation of colony sizes so as to estimate achievement towards our goal
