Help manage the homeless cat population humanely.
It is estimated that tens of millions of cats live on the streets of the United States. Sadly, many communities attempt to control their numbers through lethal methods such as catch and kill. Such methods are not only horribly cruel, they are also ineffective and costly. There is a better way.
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the humane alternative to euthanasia for managing and reducing homeless cat populations through sterilization. TNR begins with the trapping of cats using humane cage traps. The cats are then taken (in the trap) to be sterilized and vaccinated against rabies, distemper, and other diseases. Finally, the cats are "ear tipped" so they can be easily identified as sterilized. Following surgery, the cat is returned to the trap and allowed to recover, then released to the site of capture to live out its natural life while being cared for by community volunteers.
FixNation is the only clinic in the United States completely dedicated to Trap-Neuter-Return. All services for stray cats are free, including volunteer trapper training, trap rental, and all feline medical care. FixNation and its programs have sterilized more than 100,000 cats.
FixNation's philosophy is that we have just one day - one chance - to love and care for the cats that come through our doors. We treat these cats as if they were our own.
