Targeted TNR (trap, neuter, return) grant JFSL received from
Maddie’s Fund has helped
140 cats in 8 months!
#ThanksToMaddie The grant to start a community cat program and targeted TNR received in 2017 has helped 140 cats so far with a goal of 200 cats by August 2018. We partnered with the Capital Humane Society who did our spay/neuter surgeries and shots at cost. In the last eight months we have TNR (trapped, neutered and returned) 140 cats. Two areas are completely done – all the cats are spayed and neutered. We are still working in several areas to trap any remaining unaltered cats. We focused on areas that had the greatest need. One of the completed areas would bring in boxes of kittens every year to the humane society. We hope with continued TNR efforts we can TNR all the outdoor cats in Lincoln!
We need volunteers who would be willing to trap and transport community cats to and from the spay/neuter appointment.
