Summary

More than 24,000 cats are euthanized annually in Colorado simply because there aren't enough homes for all of them. Unfortunately, we can't adopt our way out of this problem.Sterilization is the only way to humanely solve the cat overpopulation problem.Although, many people do not have the means to resolve the issue because of disabilities or age and many ask for our help. Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is the internationally proven method to humanely control free roaming cat populations.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Our organization receives frequent calls from many people who do not have the means to trap these cats and have them sterilized due to disabilities or age. Without the funds to cover surgery costs the population of homeless cats will continue to grow and their communities will continue to be inharmonious.

How will this project solve this problem?

By spaying or neutering 100 free roaming cats for the disabled and elderly, The Feline Fix is preventing the birth of more than 500 homeless kittens and allowing harmony between feral cats and the communities where they live. Our goal is to spay/neuter 100 free roaming cats. Just $40 covers the cost of one cat to be sterilized.

Potential Long Term Impact

Trap-neuter-return (TNR) saves taxpayer dollars as homeless cats do not enter area shelters. The more than 500 feral cat births prevented through this program enables shelter funds to be used for adoptable cats as feral cats are wild and will only be euthanized in shelters. A successful TNR program also makes for harmony between feral cats and the communities where they live.
