Community Cats

Santa Rosa County approaches population management of outdoor community cats in a proven humane manner know as Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). Under the TNR program, community cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and returned to their original habitat. TNR prevents the birth of unwanted kittens in the community, reduces the hormone caused nuisance behaviors associated with cats not spayed or neutered, vaccinates the cats for public health, and reduces the number of cats euthanized in animal shelters.
