What is a community/feral cat?

A community cat is a cat that lives outdoors and does not have a particular home or owner. They may be friendly or, in some cases, feral(not socialized with people) these cats typically depend on humans for food, whether it is a neighborhood caretaker, dumpster, or other source.

What is trap neuter vaccinate return(TNVR)?

TNVR is not only humane but is the most effective method of controlling feral/community cat population growth. TNVR benefits the cats and the community. Using this technique community/feral cats living outside are trapped, neutered, left ear tipped, rabies vaccinated, and then returned to their outdoor home.
