Are roaming cats causing a nuisance in your neighborhood? In addition to producing litters of kittens every 2-6 months, unneutered and unspayed cats tend to spray, fight, and urinate and defecate in the open. Male cats can impregnate up to 100 female cats in one day!
Fix the Problem… for FREE
The most effective and humane way to manage outdoor cat populations is TNR: Trap cats, have them Neutered (“fixed”) then Return them to the place where they were trapped. This service is free for all people who bring cats in to SJACS from our service cities. Healthy, stray cats over 3 months of age surrendered to SJACS who do not qualify for adoption due to behavior considerations are eligible for this program.
If you would want to ensure the cat you bring in for TNR will not be euthanized, please use our pay service and do NOT surrender the cat as a stray. Bring trapped cats to the shelter Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 8:00 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. Use the front door. You will be required to pick the cat up in the afternoon and pay a $25.00 fee for services. The cat will need to recover indoors for 24-72 hours prior to release.
Removal creates MORE cats!
By ensuring as many cats as possible in a location are neutered, you can dramatically reduce the number of roaming cats in your area, and the nuisances they may produce. Trapping cats and removing them from the area can cause cat populations to explode. Especially if the cat being removed is already spayed or neutered. That cat will likely be “replaced” by a roaming, breeding cat that will produce litters of kittens.
Trapping Tips - Only trap during hours the shelter is able to accept cats, everyday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. You must be at the shelter no later than 9 p.m.
