We were thrilled to announce the results of our Old Hickory trap-neuter-return project at out National Feral Cat Day event on October 15, 2014.

Thanks to a generous grant from PetSmart Charities we provided TNR services to 324 cats from zip code 37138 between May 2013 and August 2014. Cat intake at Metro Nashville Animal Care and Control from this zip code decreased 40% from fiscal year 2013 to fiscal year 2014. We are grateful to the residents of Old Hickory who embraced TNR as the most humane option for controlling the cat population in their community. We could not be more excited to see the life saving impact of spay/neuter! We will be moving our targeting efforts to an area near you soon!
