Our Mission Statement & Goals
Our Mission Statement
The mission of Community Cats TNR is to work with compassionate individuals, local governments and other volunteers/community members to achieve population decline of the unaltered, free-roaming, feral, and/or abandoned domestic cats in our area through education and the use of a humane technique know as Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR)
- Our goals include:
- A long-term community commitment to, and achievement of the reduction of the local free-roaming cat population.
- Improved quality of life for homeless cats and kittens, humane treatment, and a community understanding that they are victims of circumstance, deserve care and kindness, and provide a valuable public service in rodent control.
- Reduction of the occurrence of nuisance behaviors associated with mating, including spraying, yowling, and fighting so that people and cats can live in harmony.
- An end to the incidence of cats and kittens destroyed by animal shelters and animal control agencies simply due to their numbers or failure to be adopted.
- Education and encouragement of participation from community members, other animal support groups, veterinarians, and local government so that there is a clear understanding of the success that can be achieved through the operation of a strong Trap/Neuter/Return program.
Cats are cats . . . the world over.
These intelligent, peace loving, four-footed friends – who are without prejudice, without hate, without greed – may someday teach us something.
