Denver Animal Protection, along with several animal welfare community organizations, have launched a Shelter-Neuter-Return (SNR) program to help combat the community cat overpopulation in Denver.
How You Can Help Community Cats
Cats in your neighborhood are often community cats. The difference between pet cats and community cats is that community cats are often feral. Feral cats have had little or no contact with humans and are fearful of people and cannot be adopted. These cats do have a home: the outdoors. There is a simple way you can help community cats: Shelter-Neuter-Return (SNR).
SNR is the only method proven to be humane and effective at controlling feral cat population growth. By using SNR, the community cats in a colony are trapped, neutered and then returned to their territory by one of our release partners, such as PawsCo and Denver Metro CAT, where caretakers provide them with regular food and shelter. This program ends reproduction, stabilizes community cat populations, improves individual cats’ lives, and saves more shelter cats that are unsocial.
