We've all seen stray and feral cats. They're the homeless cats who often live in colonies somewhere in our neighborhood. But left unchecked, these stray cats will cause a population boom that won't be good for them or us. So we're happy to be the only organization in Austin offering free spay/neuter of feral cats. Learn more about feral cats on our Feral Cat FAQs page.
In fact, since the program began in 2007, our clinic has sterilized more than 25,000 feral cats. Considering just one unsterilized female cat and her offspring can be responsible for over 10,000 kittens in just four years, we think this program is pretty important to the health and safety of Austin's feral cats!
In order to trap, sterilize and return stray cats to their colonies, we need your help. It's as easy as 1-2-3:
1. Receive training on how to use our safe, humane cat traps. You can either take a workshop or come in to rent a trap and receive a one on one training with a member of our staff.
3. Borrow a trap, trap the cats and bring them to our clinic.
The Feral Cat Program is for anyone in Central Texas who wants to make a difference and save some lives. Consider becoming a Feral Cat Trapper for the Austin Humane Society. Whether it's just one time or many times, you can help save feral cats and prevent a future population boom.
