(Trap, Neuter, & Return Program)
Peninsula Friends of Animals assists with the trapping of feral cats which are then treated for health problems, spayed or neutered, and released back into a situation where there will be feeding stations and humane oversight. Spaying just one female can prevent the birth of over 400,000 offspring in the next 7 years. Our active TNR program ensures the eventual end of the feral colony, as opposed to the perpetuation of the misery of unwanted cats living on their own, victims of starvation and sickness.
TNR has been successful in other communities that now have zero growth in their feral colony population. Working together, we too can achieve this goal.
How can you help?
- Offer to assist PFOA in humanely trapping feral cats or transporting them to a local vet.
- Offer space in a garage or storage room for a feral cat to recover in a portable kennel from spay/neuter surgery – usually for 24 to 48 hours.
- Feed cats in local feral colonies or build shelters for them.
- Provide a permanent home for a feral cat in a roomy, secure building or a cat-fenced yard.
- Make a tax deductible donation to PFOA’s TNR Program.
