Feral Cat Spay & Neuter Program
The Toby Project works closely with the feral rescue community to sterilize cats living outside in numerous colonies throughout the city.
In a cooperative effort with Ferals In Peril we operate a free, stationary feral-cat spay/neuter clinic for TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) groups, thereby stemming the growth of these colonies and lessening their tremendous impact on shelter overpopulation.
TNR is a method of humanely trapping unaltered feral cats, spaying or neutering them, and returning them back to the same location where they were living. It is the only effective, humane option for reducing feral cat populations. TNR stops the births of new cats in the colony and allows the colony members to live out their lives within their own group. The reduction in the number of these homeless cats moderates the incidence of starvation and disease among them and eases community concerns and neighborhood tensions brought on by large colonies.
If you are experienced in TNR and would like to partner with us, please contact one of our feral coordinators:
