We want to thank Friends of KC Animals for helping us with the medical costs related to spaying three female cats in Harrisonville, MO. We were not able to catch any more but there will me more cats spay/neutered from the Adrian location. We can not fix or end the problem but we are making a small dent in the cat population. We love cats and hope you do too. Please help us reduce the number of stray/feral cats colonies in Bates County Mo.
I regret to announce that I do not have any openings in my own home and with shelters full, so we will wait until January to start up again. I hope to find more residents interested in the TNR program. I hope the following information will provide you with some insight into this program.
Petfinder: Trap-Neuter-Return is the best way to help feral cats! Please review their website information. The following is about TNR program listed on Petfinder’s website but you will find several people interested in this program. https://www.petfinder.com/helping-pets/feral-cats/feral-cat-care-tnr/-=
- Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is a population-control technique in which cats are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and returned to their outdoor homes. TNR improves the cats’ health and stabilizes the colony while allowing them to live out their lives outdoors.
- Trap-Neuter-Return takes into account what is in the best interest of each cat, depending on his or her needs and level of socialization to people.
- Socialized cats and kittens are neutered, vaccinated and adopted into homes, while feral cats are re-released.
- No new kittens are born and the cats no longer experience the stresses of mating and pregnancy.
- Behaviors associated with mating, such as yowling or fighting, stop, contributing to the cats’ overall improved health and making them better neighbors. [Learn about how to TNR feral cats in your neighborhood.]
