Trap-Neuter-Return saves lives!Learn about the benefits of Trap-Neuter-Return and our Community Cats Program's increadible success!

TNR makes an increadible difference in Atlanta!LifeLine Animal Project is committed to improving the standard of care for animals in the community. The Community Cats Progam─the first and largest organized feral cat program in Atlanta─is a great example of how lives are being saved.

The program is dedicated to humanely controlling feral cat colonies by providing neighborhoods with the resources and support they need to manage feral cat populations. Through Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR), cats are trapped, neutered, vaccinated and released back into their neighborhoods. LifeLine provides traps, trapping instructions, two clinics to service the cats, education about proper cat colony management and support throughout the process. LifeLine to date has helped sterilize more than 35,000 feral and stray cats in over 21 counties.

The Benefits of TNR

  • Community cats help control the rodent population
  • There is less fighting, howling and diseases spread
  • This kind of lifesaving program actually saves around $2 million in taxpayer dollars by keeping these cats out of county shelters

The goal is to humanely decrease the number of feral cats until there are no more community cats. TNR is much cheaper than euthanasia, and it’s the only the ONLY effective method to reduce unwanted animals. Most cats will not survive relocation attempts, and new cats often move in to areas that were previously populated with a feral cat community to fill the vacuum.

With the goal of making Atlanta no-kill, LifeLine has approached the homeless problem with a number of different solutions. In addition to the Community Cats Program, LifeLine offers discounted and free spay/neuter and vaccinations at the two LifeLine Spay & Neuter Clinics. We also loan humane cat traps for outdoor communities. For more info, contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

LifeLine’s Trap King – Sterling Davis

LifeLine is lucky to have a very enthusiastic, passionate and dedicated Community Cat Coordinator. Sterling Davis goes into the community to help with our feral cat program, and is focused on educating and teaching neighbors about the benefits of TNR.

Sterling’s passion for animals started at age 12 after interviewing a slaughterhouse owner for a story he was writing. When he got home, he told his mother he wanted to become a vegetarian, and his love affair with animals began.
