Do you have a feral colony in your neighborhood? Take control of this colony by Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR). It is safe and stops the overpopulation that is taking over our counties. Please continue reading. If you need help there are organizations that will do it for free. Operation Catnip, and our very own SNIF program.
Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) is an effective way to control feral colonies. Feral cats are found in every community. When cats are not sterilized they reproduce. Cats and their offspring bond together in groups called colonies. The colonies stay where there is a food source. People care for colonies and provide food, water, and shelter.
To manage colonies, Trap/Neuter/Return is the only solution. TNR is humane and painless. Cats will no longer reproduce and the colony is manageable.
TNR is the only chance that feral cats have to live a safe and healthy life. TNR requires commitment.
The average life of a feral cat is 18 months.
Cats can reproduce as young as 5 months of age.
The gestation period of a cat is 56-65 days. A cat can go into heat every 14-21 days.
An unaltered cat and their offspring can produce over 400,000 cats in 7 years.
Early spay/neuter is beneficial to cats because :
- it produces less scar tissue
- it is less stressful on the cat
- there is a shorter recovery period when the cat is very young
- there is a lower risk of complications from surgeries
Anyone looking for a sweet and fun cat who thinks he’s a dog? Our foster, Kirby, has more personality than any cat we’ve had. He fetches better than our lazy dog, plays in the water, and loves to chase the vacuum. He’s also very affectionate. Great with kids, dogs, and probably cats, but ours won’t give him a chance. His adoption fee is only $25 throughout the month of May. He is 6 months old and already neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.

Thanks to Benefit Wines, we are able to offer our own line of wine! All proceeds will go to help our Paws In Need program, where we rescue animals that typically would be euthanized due to extra health care costs. So, why not celebrate and help save some lives at the same time? Choose one, or more (you know you’re going to want more), of the wines below and help save lives!
This is Jolene, she was adopted from us in July of last year. Jolene had been diagnosed with a partial tear of her CCL. While she was under treatment for this she received an application for adoption. When her family adopted her the diagnosis remained, with a recommendation for surgery.
It turns out both legs need surgery. Her family has created a You Caring page to help raise the funds needed to help Jolene. Please if you can help them with their medical cost that would be great. Jolene deserves the best and her family is trying to get her that.
Paws For Life is having a special cat adoption fee for St Patrick’s Day. Check out our adoptable cats that are 6 months old or older. For $25 you will be adopted a cat that is spayed/neutered, up to date on shots and tested for FeLv/FIV.
