Feral Cat Mass Trapping Program
The APL Spay/Neuter Clinic is focused on helping to control the feral cat population through aggressive spay and neuter. Studies have shown that TNR can stabilize the size of a colony if at least 70 percent of the adults are neutered. Results are more immediate if caretakers are able to trap a large majority of the colony at once. Individuals caring for a colony of 5 or more cats may make an appointment with the APL Spay/Neuter Clinic to be trained on how to correctly and safely perform a mass trapping. Once training is completed, the Clinic will loan traps and trap forks, arrange volunteer help if needed and schedule surgical slots for the number of cats you plan to trap. Our goal is to help walk caretakers through the process of a mass trapping and to assist them in any way that we can. We have provided links below to the paperwork that is required for caretakers who wish to participate in our mass trapping program. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment or a training session, please call 217/789-SPAY (7729).
