Support Our TNR Efforts

During the peak TNR season, our team faces significant financial challenges as we strive to manage the feral cat population responsibly. Every cat we trap, neuter, and return helps prevent the exponential growth of homeless cats, but the costs are substantial.

Though not feral, stray cat Mavis was caught in a Meant 2B Loved TNR trap. She needed to have her fur shaved off because it was so badly matted, it remained in one piece after being shaved off. Over time, mats grow tighter, and become itchy, and become hot on the cat’s skin, causing great discomfort. Eventually the skin becomes irritated and inflamed, risking possible infection.Without a TNR program, Mavis would still be out in the wild, suffering.

Why TNR Matters

TNR (Trap. Neuter. Return.) is crucial in controlling the feral cat population, reducing the spread of disease, and improving the lives of these cats and the communities they live in.

Financial Challenges

The cost of neutering or spaying a single cat can be as high as $220. With no financial return on our investment, our resources are stretched thin during the TNR season. Your support can make all the difference.

The Urgent Need for TNR Support

The unchecked growth of feral cat populations poses significant challenges, not only to the environment but also to local communities. Feral cats, without intervention, reproduce rapidly, leading to overpopulation and increased spread of diseases. Meant 2B Loved Pet Rescue Society is dedicated to managing these populations through humane practices.

Financially, the burden of spaying and neutering these cats is substantial. Each surgery costs approximately $115 for males and $220 for females. Given the high number of feral cats handled during peak TNR seasons, these expenses accumulate quickly, stressing our resources. While in previous years we were able to access vouchers to cover spay and neuter costs, with potentially no vouchers this year our financial strain has intensified.

By contributing to our TNR campaigns, you help us manage these costs and continue our vital work. Every donation ensures that another cat can be humanely treated and returned to its habitat, stabilizing local populations and preventing future hardships. Your support is crucial in maintaining the balance of our community ecosystems.

Hear from Our Community

The TNR (trap, neuter, release) program is a fantastic one. It will drastically reduce the number of unwanted animals that keep reproducing in our area and surrounding areas. I hope with the help of some extra funding they will be able to continue this for many years to come. They are a vital part of our community.

Meant 2B Loved Pet Rescue Society has come to our aid multiple times in the past few years to rescue kittens, cats, and TNR cats in our warehouse yard where they end up due to the many hiding places available to them after people dump them in the area. They have taken in 10 kittens from 2 different females to rehabilitate and rehome along with one of the mother cats that hadn’t become feral yet. They have also done TNR on 3 cats, 2 female and 1 male that we still have on the property for now until a farm or barn environment becomes available for them.
