CITY KITTY PROGRAM

Since 2002, PetPromise has been working with feral cat caregivers to control feral cat populations in Central Ohio through TRAP • NEUTER • RETURN.

Through our City Kitty Program, PetPromise provides rabies vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery and offers the use of humane traps when needed. Additionally, PetPromise volunteers provide guidance in the humane trapping of, and post surgical care of, altered feral cats and kittens and expert advice to novice caregivers in their guardianship of feral cats in their neighborhoods.

TRAP Humanely capture feral cats who can't be handled. Take them to the vets who treat their injuries and diseases.

NEUTER Spay or neuter the cats and confine them safely until they recover.

RETURN and MANAGE Return the cats to the original habitat/trapping site and provide for feeding and monitoring by volunteer caretakers.

This humane method of feral cat population control, is more effective than trap and kill, and reflects a caring human community. Feral cat populations are gradually reduced. Nuisance behaviors associated with breeding, such as the fighting, yowling and spraying are virtually eliminated. The spread of disease and malnutrition are greatly reduced. The cats live healthy, safe, and peaceful lives in their territories.
