Fighting Feline Euthanasia - ACG Spay/Neuter Facility

Alley Cat Guardians runs a model Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) program for residents of the greater Stanislaus County, California area. Our programs include access to low-cost, high-quality spay/neuter appointments for feral and free-roaming cats at our veterinary facility; feral cat trapping assistance and instruction; an adoption program for tame cats; and a support network for feral colony caretakers.

 

Alley Cat Guardians' spay/neuter facility empowers compassionate individuals to control their neighborhood free-roaming cat population and provide those cats with a safe and healthy living environment.  Trap/Neuter/Return is a proven procedure in which entire colonies of cats are humanely trapped, then evaluated, vaccinated, altered and ear tipped for identification.  Cats are returned to their original colony location where they live out their lives under the watch of dedicated caretakers.

 

TNR is widely recognized as the only humane, long-term solution for controlling the overpopulation of feral cats.  TNR works.  The breeding stops.  Cat populations are gradually reduced.  Nuisance behaviors associated with breeding, such as yowling females or spraying toms, are curbed.  And with proper colony management, feral cats do not suffer and can live long and healthy lives. 

 

Implementation of a complete TNR program confronts cat overpopulation at its root and provides our community with a life-saving alternative to impounding and euthanizing cats.

Population(s) Served

ACG's new facility includes ample space to accomodate TNR training sessions and hold volunteer meetings.  Many times callers are hesitant to begin TNR in their neighborhood because they are unsure of their trapping abilities.  Our experience trapping team is ready to share their knowledge, tips and tricks for catching even the most wiley of felines.  Detailed trapping instructions are available on our website and ACG offers clients with clinic appointments loaner cat traps and carriers for a refundable deposit.  ACG encourages individuals to participate in the TNR process and learn to trap.
