Quick list of reasons to spay or neuter your pet:

  • Help prevent the deaths of unwanted animals.​

  • Dogs and cats who are spayed or neutered will be less likely to roam, fight, get hit by a car, get lost or stolen.

  • Spraying and marking will decrease, or even stop completely.

  • Help prevent uterine, ovarian and breast cancer in your female pet.

  • Help prevent testicular tumors, perianal tumors, hernias, and prostate problems in your pet.

  • Some cities have ordinances requiring pets to be spayed or neutered.

  • Contact NAAWA for spay/neuter assistance.

Trap, Neuter, Return - Community Cats

Trap-Neuter-Return is the humane and effective approach for stray and feral cats. Scientific studies show that Trap-Neuter-Return improves the lives of feral cats, improves their relationships with the people who live near them, and decreases the size of colonies over time.

Trap-Neuter-Return is successfully practiced in hundreds of communities and in every landscape and setting. It is exactly what it sounds like: Cats are humanely trapped and taken to a veterinarian to be neutered and vaccinated. After recovery, the cats are returned to their home—their colony—outdoors.

 

Kittens and cats who are friendly and socialized to people may be adopted into homes, instead of returning to their outdoor colony.  If a colony is too large and it needs to decrease in size, some cats can enter into our Free Range Working Cat Program where they are adopted by families who have warm barns.  In exchange for providing good food, water and a warm barn, free range working cats will provide mouse control. 

 

Trap-Neuter-Return provides a life-saving, effective solution for these beautiful, independent cats.
