TNR Program

TNR Program

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 amount of new tom cats coming to the area and helps to minimize fighting.

For more information about TNR and the benefits of it, please see our education page.

This service is $25 per cat.

The services provided through this program include:

  • Neuter/Spay procedure
  • Rabies Vaccine
  • FVRCP Distemper Vaccine
  • Parasite Treatment
  • Ear Tip Procedure
  • Injected Pain Medication
  • Penicillin Injection



All cats must be brought in appropriately sized live cat trap (32 x 11 x 12.5 inch). If you do not own this kind of trap, FVHA can provide rental traps for cats scheduled through our TNR program.

Here are some of the benefits…

  • Fewer Cats: TNR reduces the size of community colonies, anywhere from 16% to 66%.
  • Less Smell: Too familiar with the smell of male cat urine? Neutered male cats mark their territory less and have a less pungent smell.
  • Less Noise: Neutered cats fight less and make less noise.
  • Rodent Control: Cats are a natural and effective rodent control method.
  • Disease Reduction: TNR includes vaccinations and reduces population size, which in turn can improve overall health of not only the community cats but also of other wildlife in the area.
