Save Cats in the Bronx

Save Cats in the Bronx

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.
