Reducing the Number of Stray Cats Entering the Shelter System

According to The Humane Society of the United States, there are 30 to 40 million community cats living in the United States today.

Many community cats (also called “stray,” “street,” “free-roaming,” “feral” or “semi-feral," and found outdoors in human communities) are not able to become companion animals.

Communities are faced with several options when dealing with community cats:

  • Ignore

  • Euthanize

  • Trap, Neuter, Return (TNR - also TNVR with Vaccinate)

  • Relocate

The best case scenario for most community cats is TNVR. Population growth ceases and communities learn to exist peacefully with stray cats living nearby.

 

Relocation is a last resort when all other No-Kill options have been exhausted. NJ STRAYS works to trap and transition community cats to places where they are WANTED and SAFE: barns, warehouses or rural habitats. This ensures that these cats can live out their lives in peace, without disrupting human communities.

NJ STRAYS provides FREE services to communities in North Jersey:

 

  • FREE community cat relocation

  • FREE lectures and workshops: How to Cope With Stray Cats in Your Neighborhood

Barn cats offer several benefits to their benefactors. They:

 

  • Reduce disease-carrying and pesky rodent populations

  • Hunt and eat bugs

  • Can reduce overhead by eliminating the rodents and bugs that consume livestock feed
