It is estimated that in 7 years, one female cat and her offspring can produce thousands of cats. No matter which calculation you use, the number of cats far exceed the number of adopters. 

Overpopulation is a serious concern in our jurisdiction. HSH provides a service for feral and community cats to be spayed/neutered, given a rabies vaccine, pain medication, ear tip identification, and then returned to the point of being trapped. 

TNVR reduces the stray cat population and feline cat euthanasia in shelters. TNVR offers a humane option for cats being cared for by community members and colony caretakers. 

HSH offers residents the option to pay $40 to trap and release feral and community cats in their neighborhoods. Cats must be returned to the point at which they were trapped. No exceptions. 

There is limited funding available to offset costs and a limited number of traps that can be loaned out. HSH Outreach team also traps in targeted areas. 

Residents can purchase feral cat houses through HSH September through January while supplies last.
