Trap Neuter Release Program

TNR Program

The Trap Neuter Release Program (TNR) is a way to lower the number of community (feral) cat colonies around the Lowcountry.

All feral cats MUST be within a humane trap prior to arrival. Please note, we CANNOT accept cats in the TNR program if they are in a carrier or any other container and will be denied services if not in a proper, humane trap prior to arriving at the clinic. Space is limited, on a first-come, first-serve basis, with a limit of two (2) cats per person.

We accept community cats on Thursdays, no appointment needed. Cats must be dropped off between 7:30 am and 8:00 am (only) in the Spay/Neuter Clinic located on the right side of the building. The cats must be picked up the same day before 3:00 pm. Upon arrival, please grab a number and stay in your car.  Place the number on your windshield and a staff member will deliver paperwork to your car. 

TNR cost is $25 per cat and includes:  microchip, distemper, rabies and ear tipping.
 

We recommend holding cat(s) overnight in the trap for monitoring, and releasing them the following morning as there is a risk to early release.

TRAP RENTALS

Due to the wear and tear our TNR traps sustain, we have instituted a fee to enable Pet Helpers to maintain the safety, durability, and workability of our traps for all those involved in the TNR program.  Thank you for understanding and helping Pet Helpers to sustain this life-saving program.
