Community cats

Giving care to outdoor cats and reducing the number born without homes.

Outdoor cats need love too

Our services increase the health and wellness of community cats while proactively reducing the number of animals being born without homes in our community. Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate, Return (TNVR) has been shown to be the most humane, most efficient, and least costly method of stabilizing community cat populations. We affordably provide basic healthcare to feral cats you bring to our facilities. Grant funding may be available.

TNVR services

We provide spay/neuter surgery, administer rabies and FVRCP vaccinations, and mark cats with a painless ear tip clip.

Trap rentals

Humane live-release traps are available for safely capturing, transporting, and returning community cats.

Supporting rescue groups

We work with many rescue groups and other shelters to support their TNVR programs.

Scheduling surgery

If you are a community cat trapping organization or individual with one or two cats, no appointment is necessary for Malvern and New Castle. All other locations require an appointment.
