Community Cat Program
In 2016, Gateway Pet Guardians started a new approach to controlling the homeless cat population in the Metro East. Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) specifically targets stray and feral cats—cats that otherwise could not be adopted out into a family home. In TNR, cats are humanely trapped and taken to a veterinarian (in our case, Carol House Quick Fix Pet Clinic) to be spayed/neutered and vaccinated. After recovery, the cats are returned to their home—their colony—outdoors. Cats are also eartipped, which is the universal symbol of a spayed/neutered cat. The whole process takes a total of two days.
