Above you can see slides of numerous baby kittens we have fostered, rescued and rehomed. This is only a small fraction of Cats that have been through our facility but we are now trying to make sure we take more photos and share them with all of you.
THE BENEFITS OF TNR
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the only humane and effective approach to community cats. Hundreds of shelters and municipalities support TNR, which is proven to stabilize and reduce population while providing additional benefits to the community:
Stabilizes and reduces feral cat colonies
Upon completion of TNR, the population immediately stabilizes, and reduces over time through natural attrition. No new kittens are born.
A University of Florida study found a 66% reduction in population size over 11 years.
Helps the shelter and local government
Shelters often find that it is more cost-effective to neuter and return a cat then to impound and euthanize. As a result, more resources are available for other programs
Shelter statistics are greatly improved because fewer cats and kittens are impounded.
TNR offers public health benefits through vaccinations.
Answers the needs of the community
Mating behaviors (such as yowling, spraying, roaming and presence of kittens) are reduced or eliminated. This makes community cats better neighbors with less visibility.
Improves cats' lives
Cats live healthy lives outdoors, and TNR allows them to continue doing so. A Study from The Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery found that less than 1% of more than 100,000 cats presented with debilitating or fatal conditions.
TNR eliminated behaviors and stresses associated with mating, improving the overall health of community cats
