Feral or community cats are the same species as our feline family members. But, they have been raised without human contact. These cats still rely on human caregivers for proper food and shelter, but they would rather not interact with people. Because they prefer a life outdoors, most feral cats will likely never become indoor pets.
Trap Neuter Vaccinate Return
At Animal Friends, we’re working to help our community compassionately and humanely reduce the number of feral cats through Trap Neuter Vaccinate Return (TNVR). By using humane box traps, providing spay/neuter surgery and vaccines and returning the cats to their colony, we can allow them to continue to live the life they’re used to while eliminating the risk that they’ll continue to contribute to overpopulation.
We’re proud to offer a special TNVR package for feral cats through our Low-Cost Spay/Neuter program. For $40, the package includes a spay/neuter surgery, vaccines, parasite treatment and an ear tip so that the cat can be identified once they’re returned to their colony.
To schedule a TNVR appointment, contact our Clinic Services team.
