In an effort to curb Austin's (Texas) feral cat population, the Austin Humane Society has since 2007 operated a free Trap-Neuter-Return program. T-N-R is a volunteer-led effort to trap strays and ferals, get them to the AHS clinic to be fixed (dewormed, given shots, and to have one ear "tipped" so that they can be identified from afar as fixed) and then returned to the streets, where they often live in colonies – groups of cats that volunteers generally continue to feed and to tend to for years.

Spay and Stay of Illinois has received a second PetSmart Charities grant to help with its Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) efforts in Waukegan, Illinois. The grant, which was announced Friday, is to assist Spay and Stay in its efforts to trap, spay/neuter, vaccinate and microchip 750 free-roaming stray or feral cats through its Project Fixin’ Waukegan.

R.I.P. Texas A & M's Bisbee: "The feral cat and unofficial Texas A & M campus mascot Bisbee, named for his favorite napping spot near the Biological Sciences Building East, was found dead Thursday, as Aaron Deering of The Battalion reported."

"The Space Coast Feline Network has spayed or neutered more than 10,000 cats since its inception. Imagine how many kittens that prevented from being born. How can anyone not believe it’s better to keep these poor, unfortunate animals from adding to the population as opposed to trapping them and killing them?"
