Operation: FIXation

Feline overpopulation is becoming an epidemic. It's happening everywhere and shelters (including ours!) are unable to keep up with the overwhelming amount of cats being born every single day. 

Most outside cats are not familiar with humans and would rather live on their own without them. They are unhappy being confined inside and are unable to be handled. These cats are called feral cats, community cats, or alley cats. Because they are not tame, we are unable to accept them into our adoption program to re-home as pets. The alternative? Trap-Neuter-Release!

Trap-Neuter-Release is the only alternative that works for community cats. You trap them, we spay/neuter them, and they are re-released to their original location (after letting them recover at LHS). By returning the cats to their original location, they reclaim their territory and prohibit unfixed cats from taking their place. The annoying behaviors unfixed cats are famous for (spraying, fighting, yowling) are normally eliminated post-surgery. The cats become a friendly neighbor as opposed to a nuisance!

Petsmart Charities offered Lenawee Humane Society a Trap-Neuter-Return grant, allowing us to subsidize the cost of spaying/neutering community cats through this program. Our goal was to fix 1,000 community cats from June 1st, 2015-May 31st, 2016.
With your help, we reached our goal, fixing 1,002 cats during our pilot program!

We're not done yet though. Have a cat (or a few) you'd like to sign up?
