Community Cats – Brandywine Valley SPCA


Our services increase the health and wellness of community cats while proactively reducing the number of animals being born without homes in our community.

TNVR Services

In an effort to properly address and manage the cat overpopulation problem in our community, the Brandywine Valley SPCA employs Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return (TNVR) efforts through our Community Cat Program. TNVR has been shown to be the most humane, most efficient, and least costly method of stabilizing community cat populations.

We identify areas with significant cat populations and offer services and support for the residents of those communities. Cats are humanely trapped, taken to the BVSPCA’s Animal Health Center to be spayed or neutered and vaccinated, and then returned to the location they were found to live out their lives.

TNVR Services

  • Includes spay/neuter surgery, ear tip, rabies & FVRCP vaccinations
