Rascal Charities’s TNR program was developed as a way to humanely control pet overpopulation. Feral cats and strays can be a problem in some communities, and trap and euthanasia is not the answer as proven by cat population studies. Most community residents are also against the idea of killing cats and look for a humane way to control the problem while allowing the population to live off its life without adding new cats to it. We will be using money from spay/neuter donations, Rascal TNR merchandise sales, and fundraisers to help fund this program.
Ferals will receive the following services:
- Examination under anesthesia
- Spay or Neuter
- Left Ear Tip
- Rabies Immunization
- Treatment for conditions such as mild Upper Respiratory Infections and wounds
Feral cats must be caught in traps and must be released in the same area they were trapped. If a feral cat is found to be too ill to be released, it will be humanely euthanized.
If a feral kitten is trapped, the organization will decide if the kitten can be adopted or if it should be returned to the colony.
The second part of the program will help prevent owned cats from contributing to the cat overpopulation problem by offering a subsidized price to individuals with indoor/outdoor cats in need of financial assistance. Owned cats will receive the same services listed above for a cost to the owner of $32 per cat. Pet owners must be able to show picture id and proof of qualification (government financial aid card or letter). We will hold special clinics for owned cats both at the Rascal Animal Hospital in Dublin and through the Rascal Unit at different locations.
Additional services may be requested by owners or caretakers and will be done at our regular prices at the owner’s/caretaker’s expense.
