We partner with other local non-profit organizations to reach our mission to sterilize cats / kittens by assisting the public and transporting their cats/kittens to low cost spay neuter clinics. Our goal is to make a great impact on the over population of cats in our surrounding area. We also participate in TNR of feral cats in our community. TNR humanely manages feral and free roaming cats, while preventing the cats from breeding. They are humanely trapped, spayed/ neutered and vaccinated, then released back to their home or relocated if necessary to reduce their numbers and improve their quality of life.
