Become a Feral Cat Colony Caretaker
Low-cost feral cat Trap-Neuter-Release program will reduce the number of homeless cats and provide much-needed care
Every year, thousands of feral cats whose natural habitat is outdoors, away from people, are born in the metro Detroit area.
MHS is looking for volunteers willing to assist thousands of feral cats in the coming years, by utilizing a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) strategy, which has proven to be the most effective and humane way of helping feral cats,
Because feral cats are generally not able to be socialized and placed into adoptive homes, the most humane option is to ensure that they can live out their lives outdoors while not breeding more homeless cats.
MHS' new Feral Cat Program will assist individuals who wish to manage a feral cat colony near their home or workplace with the opportunity to provide the animals with much-needed care. Caretakers will be trained on proper techniques and equipment to humanely trap feral cats and bring them to the Michigan Humane Society for sterilization and care. The animals will then be released back to their habitat.
For those interested in becoming a feral cat colony caretaker and participating in MHS’ low-cost feral cat TNR program, MHS is hosting a required workshop. Sign up today!
