Feral Cat TNR
Trap, Neuter, Return programs are the ONLY successful programs to reduce the number of free-roaming cats and allows shelters to focus resources on dogs and cats that can be rehomed and reduces death rates.
The following groups offer information and resources:
– All About Animals Rescue, Warren, offers TNR training, support, and affordable spay/neuter surgeries. View their website for dates for TNR workshops, trap rental, trap use videos, shelter building plans, and more.
– Carol’s Ferals, Grand Rapids, assists community cat caregivers with TNR and support services, adoption of friendly cats and kittens obtained through their TNR program, and advises caregivers how to find quality homes for cats they wish to help on their own.
– Community Cats TNR, Mason County, is s a group of volunteers, caregivers, and veterinarians working in the City of Ludington and Mason County, MI to reduce and stabilize the number of free-roaming, abandoned, homeless, feral cats.
– Feral Kitty Trappers, South Lyon. Help for feral cat caretakers with Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). Kittens are trapped and taken to an accredited TNR facility. Cats receive a wellness check, spay/neuter, a rabies vaccine, and are also ear tipped. The cats are kept 24 to 48 hours, then returned and released back to their trapping location.
– Metro Detroit Feral Cat Meetup is a group of people who are managing feral cat colonies or interested in helping those who do, such as fostering cats for a few days after they’ve been sterilized or helping someone care for a local colony. They are NOT a rescue group and cannot pick up, relocate, place OR adopt out kittens or cats.
– Trap-Neuter-Return Community Facebook group for advocates to post TNR related items, ask help with problems, discuss issues, share struggles and successes… we are TNR groups working for the common good of community cats!
