Animal Control

Humane Live Trap Rental

The Shelter-Neuter-Return (SNR) program is proven to be humane and effective at controlling outdoor cat population growth. Using this technique, cats will be vaccinated, spayed/neutered, ear-tipped for identification, and then RETURNED to their original territory. The goal of this SNR program is to maximize quality of life for the cats and to minimize growth of the colony over time.
