Community Cats

 

"Community Cat" is an umbrella definition that includes any un-owned cats. These cats may be "feral" (unsocialized) or friendly, may have been born into the wild, or may be lost or abandoned pet cats.

Feral Cat Program

Trap, Neuter, Return

Many Community Cats are cared for by compassionate people who provide food and water for these cats. Others thrive without any human intervention, especially in our coastal climate. They live in neighborhoods, shopping centers, commercial properties, and near dumpsters - anywhere they can find shelter. Whatever a cat's individual circumstances, the term "Community Cat" reflects the reality that for these cats, "home" is within the community rather than in an individual household. For these cats, however, overpopulation remains their biggest threat.

HSNMB promotes Trap/Neuter/ Return (TNR), which has proven to be the most effective, humane method of reducing Community Cat populations. Through TNR, these cats are humanely trapped, vaccinated for Rabies, neutered, ear-tipped, and returned to outdoor homes to live out their lives. Individuals are encouraged to engage in TNR whenever possible.

HSNMB has traps available for a $50 refundable deposit.
