Key Points About Trapping

  • Find out about pet/owned cats in the area: what color, what gender, and other identifying information. Only trap free-roaming cats.

  • Do not bring in pet/tame cats without trying to find an owner and obtaining permission. The cats should not be transported, sedated and checked for spay/neuter, if they are someone’s altered pet.

  • Check carefully for an ear tip; release immediately if identified.

  • If you trap a sickly cat, please seek medical treatment with a full service vet before scheduling surgery to maximize the cat’s health.

To become familiar with your responsibilities once you trap cats, read through “Before You Arrive” and “The Day of the Clinic.” Once you understand what is expected, you are ready to make reservations. Do not begin trapping until you have reservations.
