Within our three communities, Star Valley, Jackson, and Teton Valley, thousands of feral and stray cats roam freely and breed rapidly. Communicable diseases run rampant through these communities as they are easily transmitted through bites and breeding. These cats suffer due to disease, the elements, predation, and lack of food.
If you have feral or stray cats on your property, apply for our TNR program. Once we have your permission, the PAWS Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) team will set humane traps on your property. Traps are set at night and checked in the morning. The captured cats are transferred to a local vet to be assessed and spayed/neutered. After recovery cats are returned to their property. This program is free and we simply ask property owners to provide adequate shelter, food, and water for the cats.
