Trap-Neuter-Return has officially moved into the mainstream in Stanislaus County. The TNR movement started 23 years ago in the U.S. and is stronger than ever saving the lives of cats in communities across the nation.
The Stanislaus County animal shelter is embracing TNR, a program under which cats are humanely trapped, sterilized and vaccinated for rabies, then returned to their outdoor homes.
TNR has been demonstrably effective in stabilizing and reducing the population of feral and stray cats in this community and it has provided enormous cost savings to taxpayers because fewer healthy cats are entering the shelter and being killed there.
There is still much more work to be done and I invite you to keep the momentum going to initiate positive changes and save the lives of cats in our community. For more information, call (209) 809-5406. To make a spay-neuter appointment for ferals or strays at the Cat Network of Stanislaus County TNR Clinic, call (209) 735-0604. Be part of the solution and help Stanislaus Countys shelter become a no-kill shelter.
