Help us control the community cat population!

TNVR is the internationally proven practice of humanely trapping, spaying/neutering, vaccinating, then returning (to their colonies) feral or free-roaming (outside) community cats.


Community cats, sometimes known as feral cats, are born and raised in the wild, or have been abandoned or lost and reverted to wild ways in order to survive. Many times abandoned pets join these cats in our communities.


Community or feral cats live in groups called colonies and live near food sources. These colonies can be managed through a non-lethal method called Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return (TNVR), in which cats are humanely (and painlessly) trapped, spayed or neutered, and returned to their colony site where volunteer caretakers provide them with food, water and shelter for the duration of their lives. TNVR is the only method that has been proven to effectively manage colonies of feral cats and reducing their population.

TNVR is the only chance these cats have of living safe, healthy lives without reproducing.

TNVR helps the community by stabilizing the population of the feral colony and, over time, reducing it. At the same time, nuisance behaviors such as spraying, loud noise and fighting are largely eliminated and no more kittens are born. Yet, the benefit of natural rodent control is continued.
