We conduct a trap/neuter/return program on a project basis in Delaware, Morrow, Knox, and southern Richland Counties. For this program, our trained volunteers trap feral (wild) cats in humane traps and transport them to a licensed veterinarian for spay or neuter surgery, a one-year rabies vaccination, ear-tipping, and medical treatment if needed. After a brief recovery, the cats are returned to their home. The colony caregiver is expected to provide simple, long-term care to the cats.
We are not a cat removal service, animal shelter, or adoption agency.
SNACK relies on our volunteers to trap and transport cats to a veterinarian for surgery. Like many other organizations, our volunteer staffing is down with the pandemic. Our activity in 2022 is likely to be very limited. If you are interested in SNACK's assistance, please read over the TNR Frequently Asked Questions and submit your application for assistance. If we cannot help you, we can offer some suggestions.
Also, if you are interested in trapping community cats on your own, we closely follow the guidelines of Alley Cat Allies when we conduct TNR projects. Please see https://www.alleycat.org/resources/how-to-help-community-cats-a-step-by-step-guide-to-trap-neuter-return/
