TRAP NEUTER RETURN MAINTAIN (TNRM)

Our TNRM Program helps manage the Community Cat population on Salt Spring Island. TNRM is a cost-effective and humane way of stabilizing community cat populations and, in fact, reducing them over time, as the cats are no longer reproducing. In addition, unwanted behaviours such as fighting and spraying are significantly reduced when all cats in a colony are spayed or neutered.  

When we ‘TNR’ a colony, our approach is as follows:

  1. Meet with colony caretaker(s) to discuss the colony (numbers, ages of cats, etc) and any health concerns as well as various options for trapping,
  2. Humanely trap cats in the colony (note that this process can take several weeks depending on the number of cats being trapped and the availability of the caretaker(s) to assist),
  3. Spay/neuter, vaccinate, and ear tip cats in the colony, and
  4. Return cats (after 2-3 days of recovery) to their managed colony to live out their lives!

We rely on caretakers to provide food and shelter for their cats, and to monitor the ongoing health of their cats. We are always available for support as needed.  

If you need help with care of your community cats, please CONTACT US!

If you are interested in getting involved with our TNR program as a volunteer, please complete our Volunteer Application.

BACKYARD BUDDIES | WORKING CATS

While we hope to place all our cats in loving indoor homes, the reality is that some cats do not adjust well to living inside. The Working Cat/Backyard Buddy program provides solutions for feral, under-socialized or free-roaming cats (also called “Community Cats”). Placing them as primarily outdoor cats in barns, sheds, or other outbuildings is a humane and practical alternative to euthanasia. These cats can discourage rodents, provide companionship for horses and other farm animals, and can live out their lives in relative security and comfort. 

If you can provide shelter and a regular supply of food and water, a Backyard Buddy/Working Cat may be ideal for you. All cats are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and treated for parasites before being placed.  

If you are interested in adopting a Backyard Buddy/Working Cat, or would like more general information about this program, please CONTACT US!
