Community Cats

Community cats (also known as feral, stray or free-roaming cats), are the most-at-risk animals in shelters throughout the U.S. Since community cats are at great risk of being killed if they enter shelters, many shelters and rescue groups ensure that they do not end up there by organizing and operating humane trap/neuter/return (TNR) programs. Trap/neuter/return is a comprehensive management plan in which healthy community cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and then returned to their outdoor communities.

However, due to the large number of animals involved and the destructive impact animal hoarding has on human well-being, it is crucial to recognize hoarding and to get appropriate intervention to reduce human and animal suffering.
