We are dedicated to helping create a no kill community by humanely reducing the homeless cat population in the Milwaukee area through targeted trap-neuter-return (TNR).
The community cats in this video were born and raised outdoors with little human contact, and are not suited for lives as house cats.
They have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped to a loving caretaker and returned to their outdoor homes through a program called TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return).
It is estimated that there are about 70 million stray cats in the United States.
Every year approximately 1.4 million cats are killed in shelters.
Less then 5% of stray cats are reclaimed from shelters by their owners.
What is TNR?
Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the only proven method of humanely reducing the cat population. After the cats are trapped they visit a veterinarian to be spayed, neutered, vaccinated, and ear tipped. After they recover from surgery they are released back to their neighborhood. They are given food and shelter by community cat caretakers.
Sterilizing cats prevents more cats from being born and adding to the already overwhelming cat population. This reduces the number of cats entering overwhelmed shelters thereby reducing shelter deaths, saving lives!
About Urban Cat Coalition
Urban Cat Coalition is dedicated to helping create a no kill community by humanely reducing the homeless cat population in the Milwaukee area through targeted trap-neuter-return (TNR).
We conduct targeted trapping and support community cat caretakers by being a resource to provide guidance with trapping and colony care.
We educate the community on cat overpopulation and the benefits of TNR.
