Monroe Cats TNR

We are committed to advocating for an end to the killing of cats, leading the movement for change, and protecting the lives of cats—and the people who care for them. We help free roaming neighborhood cats live a healthier life and help end animal overpopulation by spaying and neutering.

Our group is non profit, all volunteer based organization. We do trap-neuter-return in our community. We live trap cats and kittens, sterilize them, vaccinate, and ear tip. The cats are then returned to where they were trapped or placed in a foster home for adoption.

We are educating folks in our community on how to stop cats from breeding in their neighborhoods and how to comfortably live with sterilized free roaming cats. We work to help the cats’ well-being, improve their relationships with neighbors, and assist the people who live nearby to understand and co-exist with community cats.

We are always looking for donations and volunteers.

We trap and transport every week taking cats to The Paws Clinic and The Cat Dr. several times a week.

If anyone has free roaming cats they need sterilized, please contact us. Together we can help our community and the cats that live here.

Abandonment of Pet Cats

While a true feral cat has been taught survival skills, an abandoned pet does not have those same abilities.
An abandoned pet would also be known as a friendly, or a stray, which will want to Interact with humans. These pets have been fed by humans for a period of time, then suddenly find themselves in a world where they are unable to fend for themselves. If they are lucky they will find a kind human who will feed and care for them. This is often not the case. They either starve to death, get beaten up from attacks from other cats, which usually leads to infection and death, get hit by a car trying to go back home, or a predator kills them.

Responsible guardianship dictates sterilizing a kitten at 2 pounds or about 3 months old. Here are two reasons for this:

  • First: because kittens can begin their reproductive cycles as young as 4 months.
  • Second: to ensure nuisance behaviors do not begin and that the cats will have secure relationships within their homes.
