We Care For Animals

We Care for Animals is a Trap-Neuter-Return based non-profit organization with a mission to lower the population of Community Cats in a kind and compassionate way.

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 TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) to reduce the numbers of Community Cats over time. We Care for Animals uses humane education as the base of all our TNR programs with training in trapping, caregiving, and the health of local colonies.

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 TNR and have become a trap depot for the community so they may safely provide TNR to their colonies.

We Care for Animals focuses on Community Cat populations rather than owner friendly animals and we do not foster.  At We Care for Animals we look at the community and Community Cat as a whole that work for the benefit of each other.

 

What is Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR)?

Feral cats are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, ear-tipped (the universal symbol of a sterilized feral cat), and returned to their outdoor homes, where they are monitored by caretakers. Research has shown that, when correctly implemented, TNR stabilizes and reduces feral cat populations, eliminates undesirable behaviors associated with mating, and is more effective and cost-efficient than lethal control.
