What is a community cat? A community cat is a wild animal. Usually a person is unable to touch or pick up a community cat. They will normally run from humans. To catch a community cat, it is often necessary to humanely trap them using a hav-a-heart trap. Community cats tend to live in groups called a colony. A colony will normally not accept new cats into the group. The best way to manage a community cat colony is through spay/neuter. By spaying / neutering all of the members of a colony, the colony will shrink through attrition. For more information on community cats, visit Alley Cat Allies.
We provide spay/neuter services for community cats at a discounted rate. Surgery for community cats is done on Thursdays. We have a limited number of humane traps available for use (requires a deposit, which will be returned when the trap is brought back).
