Community cats are unowned cats that live outside.
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is a humane method of managing community cat populations.
Neighborhood Cats has excellent resources for anyone interested in learning more about TNR.
Over time, TNR has been proven to effectively control the growth of community cat populations.
"The Feral Cat Population Explosion" explains in detail why TNR works.
Our group is actively working to TNR Salem's community cats as well as assisting property owners to manage cat colonies on farms.
We also take in kittens born to community and barn cats so they can be fostered, vetted, and adopted into good homes.
Since we began in 2019, our group has touched the lives of over 754 cats, either through spay/neuter services or fostering and adopting.
