  • The Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program is proven to be humane and effective at controlling feral cat population growth. Using this technique, all cats on property will be spayed/neutered, ear-tipped for identification, and then returned to their territory. The goal of this TNR program is to maximize quality of life for the cats and to minimize growth of the colony. PAWS of JH, its volunteers, and participating vet clinics use qualified staffing and approved materials for all procedures performed. Carefully read, understand, and agree to all of the following before signing your name.
    • I give consent to PAWS of JH staff, PAWS volunteers, and participating vet clinics’ staff and volunteers to perform trappings on my property and will inform neighbors of this program.
