Help community cats this winter

posted in: Animal Community | 0

Did you know we partner with the Fairfax County Animal Shelter to support Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR) for community cats? It’s true! Community cats are cats that live outdoors without one particular owner, although they’re often cared for by many individuals. Community cats are often fearful and avoidant of humans and are not suited to be indoor pets. TNR helps to reduce overpopulation while allowing these kitties to live in their outdoor homes where they are happiest.

If you care for outdoor cats, you can help them through the tough winter months by providing the cats outdoor shelters filled with straw to keep warm, making sure they have access to fresh water, and feeding them high-calorie canned food along with regular dry food.

If you’d like to learn more about TNR in Fairfax County, including how you can help community cats by getting them spayed/neutered and vaccinated, plus some great colony care tips, sign up here for an upcoming free workshop at the shelter:
