We Care for Animals is a Trap-Neuter-Return based non-profit organization with a mission to humanely lower the population of Community Cats through TNR.
We Care for Animals started in April 2016, knowing Community Cats (Feral) that are brought into our shelter are deemed unsocial and unadoptable. Often they are at extremely high risk for euthanasia. With that in mind I decided to start a non-profit organization knowing there is a humane method called (Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return) . We Care for Animals uses humane education as the base of all TNVR program with training in trapping, caregiving, and colony management.
We continue to spay/neuter and vaccinate Community Cats, and are able to address medical issues within the colonies. We are evolving as we provide training on TNVR and have become a trap depot for the community so they may safely provide TNR practices to their colonies.
We Care for Animals focuses on Community Cat populations rather than owned pets.
At We Care for Animals look at the community and Community Cat as a whole that work for the benefit of each other.
What is T-N-R ?
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the only proven and humane method of managing community cat colonies, and is endorsed by leading animal welfare organizations such as the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).
Community Cats are humanely trapped, spayed/ neutered, vaccinated and ear-tipped (the universal symbol of a sterilized). They are than returned to their outdoor homes, where they are monitored by caretakers. Research has shown that, when correctly implemented, TNR stabilizes and reduces community cat populations, eliminates undesirable behaviors associated with mating, and is more effective and cost-efficient than lethal control.
