The Fox Valley Humane Association’s TNR program provides spay/neuter and vaccination services to community cats for a nominal fee. This program is designed for feral/outdoor cats only.
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is a humane method of trapping community cats to be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and returned to their colonies to live out the remainder of their lives. TNR is the most humane and efficient way of controlling cat populations. It helps to reduce disease, overpopulation, noises and nuisance behaviors such as spraying and promotes better overall health of outdoor cat colonies.
After being spayed or neutered, cats tend to live longer, healthier lives. Spaying a female will prevent them from going into heat, which in turn reduces the number of new tom cats coming to the area and helps to minimize fighting.
The services provided through this program include:
