In the U.S., 50 million dollars are spent every year by the animal control agencies. Studies have shown that Trap-”Alter”(Neuter/Spay)-Return is the most successful method, is operated at lowest cost to local government and residents, and provides the best life for cats themselves.
- stabilizes the population to a manageable level
- eliminates annoying behaviour associated with mating
- is humane and fosters compassion and community spirit
According to the latest statistics from the San Diego Department of Animal Control, as of July 1997 there is a decrease of almost 50% in the number of cats impounded and killed since introduction of the Trap-Neuter-Return program of the Feral Cat Coalition in San Diego. We hope to have the same results here.
