Litter of pets (3 or more): $50.00
Animal Services Policy on Intake of Cats
The Animal Services Department supports the practice of trap-neuter-return (TNR) as the most effective and practical long-term solution to address population management with regard to feral and community cats. As a policy, Animal Services does not actively trap or remove stray felines from private property, nor are they accepted at the animal shelter. The animal shelter will accept healthy, domesticated cats as owner surrenders, by appointment only, space permitting. Animal Services encourages the efforts of property owners and private organizations to trap and neuter unowned community cats and safely return them to their home area. These methods have been shown to be an effective means of limiting the growth of stray cat populations. For more information on TNR resources in the area, please call or email.
