Trap/Neuter/Return

Check out some photos of my Saturday experience volunteering at a spay/neuter clinic for feral cats in State College!

This past Saturday I had the opportunity to volunteer with Small and Exotic Animal Club (SEAC) at The Hundred Cat Foundation spay/neuter clinic. This is a monthly clinic held to curb the feral cat populations in State College through the practice of trap/neuter/return. Around 35 cats were fixed on Saturday in a mass volunteer effort--a great experience open to all students looking to gain valuable hands-on experience in veterinary medicine!

What is trap/neuter/return?

Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) is a humane method of reducing the population of feral, stray, and unowned roaming cats over time. Feral and stray cats already living outdoors are humanely trapped, evaluated, spayed or neutered, and vaccinated. The population of the colony is reduced naturally over time. This treatment, sometimes the only medical care these cats receive in their lifetime, contributes to a healthier life for these cats and kittens.
