Learn about the benefits of Trap-Neuter-Return and our Community Cats Program's increadible success!
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.
Together, everyone in Atlanta can help with the mission to save lives.
