The Trap Neuter Release Program (TNR) is a way to lower the amount of community (feral) cat colonies around the Lowcountry. Thanks to a generous grant by Humane Net, the surgery only costs $16 and a little bit of your own personal free time. All feral cats MUST be within a trap. Please note we CANNOT accept cats in the TNR program if they are in a carrier or any other container. Space is limited to five (5) ferals per day, and it is a first-come, first-serve basis.
We accept community cats on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, 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. You would pick them up the following day between 8:30am and 9:00 am (only). We recommend holding them overnight in the trap for monitoring, and releasing them the following morning as there is a risk to early release.
If you do not own a trap, we can loan one out to you in the Spay/Neuter Clinic. There is a $75 deposit, however you are not charged unless the trap is lost, stolen or broken. You can loan one out for a month, and if not returned we will give you a reminder call. After one week has passed and we have not received the trap or a call, we will charge your account for the trap and it will be yours to do with as you please.
The services we provide with the TNR program are as follows:
- Vaccinations (Rabies and Distemper 1 year)
