Saving Cats Get TNR in Brenham and Washington Co.

Two-thirds of the 625,000 pets killed in America's shelters every year are cats. About two-thirds of the animals killed in shelters are cats. Most are free-roaming, stray or feral cats -- also known as community cats. Although some of these cats are adoptable, many more are not. And for unadoptable cats, a trip to the shelter is often fatal.

Why is this important?

In order to create compassionate no-kill communities and achieve no-kill for cats nationwide, we need communities to support lifesaving programs like Trap-Neuter-Return [TNR].

The process is simple: cats are caught (often by volunteers), evaluated by veterinarians, vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and returned to their original outdoor homes, unable to have kittens.

These programs are also proven to be the most cost-effective, veterinarian-approved, and animal-friendly solution for controlling and reducing free-roaming cat populations.

What are the benefits of mandatory spay and neuter laws?

A majority of states have implemented mandatory spay and neuter laws to address the overpopulation of homeless cats (and dogs). The goal is to decrease the number of unwanted animals that suffer and die on the streets, decrease the risk to public health and safety, and reduce the costs to local governments for impounding and destroying (euthanizing) animals.

Humans are causing pet overpopulation by being irresponsible pet owners and not spaying/neutering their cats (and dogs). We must help prevent pet overpopulation which creates unwanted cats (and dogs).
