Community Cat Trapping

Volunteers are needed to assist with our Trap-Neuter-Return program to humanely control outdoor cat populations by neutering, vaccinating, and ear-tipping stray and feral cats. Volunteers set traps where a colony of cats is reported, then take traps containing cats to our clinic.Trapping can occur according to the volunteer’s schedule. Projects take approximately 2 to 3 days to trap all cats in a particular area. Volunteers return the cats to their outdoor home when the project is complete.
