WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT WHAT WE DO

COMMUNITY CATS

Cats, especially feral cats, have no chance of making it out. In 2011, 80% of all felines that entered the shelter were euthanized. Briefly, there are too few adopters to provide homes for the local population. People who leave the locale often abandon their unfixed pets, who then forage for themselves, breed, and increase the population even more.

What is T-N-R?

TNR is short for Trap-Neuter-Release, a community activity in which feral cats are trapped, brought to a spay/neuter event for sterilization, and then returned to their home territories.  TNR can save lives and reduce tax dollars spent in our communities here in Southern New Mexico.

Dept of Defense & Cats

The DOD recognizes that many cats who become “feral” are actually cats who have been abandoned by their owners, or who have strayed from home and are unable to find their way back.

Pet Smart Charities

PetSmart Charities supports TNR,  which depends on community assistance to provide food and water. Very importantly, cats that have been in TNR programs have been vaccinated against disease, which makes the whole community safer.

Alley Cat Allies

Many organizations offer a grants to assist communities in creating and maintaining TNR programs. One of the is the national Alley Cat Allies, They gave a $500 grant to the city of Yukon, AK, for their “innovative and sustainable programs.”  Alley Cat Allies initiated National Feral Cat Day on their 10th anniversary in 2001. It is celebrated on October 16th every year.
