Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is a widely accepted, humane method of controlling the population of feral cats.
Our group is very actively working in the Salem area to TNR free-roaming community cats as well as assisting property owners to manage community cat colonies on farms.
Over time, TNR has been proven to drastically reduce the number of feral cats in communities.
The cats are trapped in humane traps, taken to the vet for spay/neuter and vaccinations, then released back at the place they were trapped.
Volunteers feed the cats, provide shelter, and monitor the health and well-being of the cats. The cats live out their lives.
If you are looking for help with cats on your property, please bear in mind that spay/neuter costs us a minimum of $100 per cat. We cover this cost when we can but funding is not always available as we rely 100% on donations to cover our costs.
We are not a government-funded entity and we are run completely by volunteers.
