Community cats are cats without owners, and therefore need the community’s help. Together, we can make sure these cats are spayed, neutered and vaccinated. This practice will keep the population from growing larger and ensure healthier lives for all cats.

Are you an animal lover? Please think about fostering a cat. This selfless act frees up valuable space in our shelters, so we can take care of more cats. What’s more, you’ll be giving the animal a more natural, relaxing environment until he/she is ready for adoption. Your heart will thank you.

A caring resident in Price Hill called and told us about Trixie, so we notified a community cat caregiver. She brought Trixie to the vet in a humane trap. Trixie was then spayed, vaccinated, and given a left ear-tip so people could tell from a distance that she’d been fixed. Next, our caregiver returned Trixie to her outdoor home where she is now healthier and happier!

Do you have a Call of the Mild story? Tell us ‣

  1. Please leave stray kittens where you found them (as long as they’re in a safe place). Those kittens may look helpless (and adorable!), but mom is likely out searching for their next meal.
  2. If you’re feeding a stray, please take responsibility and call us for spay/neuter. We’ll make sure your cat friend is spayed or neutered and safely returned.
  3. If you see a cat with a tipped left ear, the animal has already been spayed or neutered. For more information, please read the Field Guide.

Spaying and neutering is the most humane way to effectively control pet overpopulation in the no-kill nation. And community cats are no exception. Spaying and neutering will ensure that community cat populations never exceed available food sources, which would lead to starvation, disease and worse.
