Community Cats

Community cats, also called feral or outdoor cats, live and thrive in the outdoors. They are not “stray cats” that previously have been handled by humans. Most community cats are not socialized to people and, therefore, are not adoptable. However, this does not mean that they should be taken to pounds and shelters. Community cats live full, healthy lives outdoors, but unfortunately they are usually euthanized in shelters.

Catch and Kill does not work.

Animal Control’s dated approach for community cats – catching and killing – is endless and cruel. Cats choose to reside in locations for two reasons: there is a food source, whether it is intended or not, and shelter. When cats are removed from a location, a new colony of cats will move in, or the cats left behind from the original colony will breed, causing the overpopulation cycle to continue.

Trap-Neuter-Return does work.

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) benefits the cats and the community. Cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and ear tipped (the universal sign of a fixed and vaccinated cat), and then returned to their outdoor home. This stabilizes the colony and means there will be no more kittens.

You can make a difference.

Together, we can educate people about community cats and the fact that they do not belong in shelters. Help us spread the word that TNR is the humane approach to controlling community cat populations.
