Community cats are free-roaming cats who live outdoors and may have humans helping take care of them, but are not “pets.” With proper community support and proper care—including the need to be fixed and vaccinated—people and community cats can share the earth harmoniously.

The unfortunate reality is that we are currently hiring for a veterinary surgeon and will be offering very limited TNR this spring. We will only be conducting scheduled trappings for those who are physically unable to trap and transport cats to other TNR clinics in the metro area. Once we are able to fill the surgeon role, we plan to increase volume and will update the webpage as well as the HSHV Community Cats facebook group.
