We work toward the humane management and reduction of street cats, stray and feral, through a Trap Neuter Return (TNR) program. We work with communities to address the issue of street cats, provide support to cat care givers and use the opportunity to teach respect for all of life and can help to counteract violence at it’s core.

Help The Residents And Cats
In Your Community
Does someone in your neighborhood feed cats? It might be someone who's isolated, or doesn't know about TNR, or is fearful that their cats may be taken away and killed.
You can help - we can help you help them. Download our 'Seeing Street Cats' brochure and put it in their door (not mailbox please). It would be best if you could talk to them or write a personal note.
Remember, it wasn't long ago and they may have been threatened with a citation or the threat of trap and remove.
