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.
The services provided through this program include:
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.
