Please note: As of 5/25/2022 we have had to close intake and requests for help with trapping cats/kittens for TNR or intake. We hope to be able to open our request form again in July 2022.We do not have enough resources (trappers, fosters, holding space, or available vet appointments) to continue taking requests at this time. While we try to work through our back log, please do what you can on your own and reach out to HAWS (Humane Animal Welfare Society in Waukesha) to TNR cats you are feeding. You can rent traps from HAWS and schedule discounted surgeries through their Project Guardian Program

Please continue to adopt our cats and kittens so we can make room for the hundreds more that need our help!

We are dedicated to helping create a no kill community by humanely reducing the community 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 community cat population. This reduces the number of cats entering shelters thereby reducing shelter deaths, saving lives!
