About the Trap, Neuter, Vaccinate & Return Program

In order to help control the overpopulation of feral and stray cats in our community, KCK runs a trap, neuter, vaccinate and return program. Through the program and with the help of volunteer caregivers, community cats are trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and ear-tipped (the universal symbol for a vaccinated, neutered cat) and returned to the location where they were trapped. Terms and Conditions of our TNVR Program:

Please read the Terms and Conditions carefully before applying to the program.

  • Cats in the program are un-owned or stray and living outside
  • Caregivers will use this program solely to benefit community cats, not "owned" animals or animals they intend to adopt out to the public
  • Cats will be trapped only for the purpose of spay/neuter or other necessary medical treatments
    • Following surgery, the cats will be released at the location where they were trapped, unless deemed medically inappropriate
  • Cats in the program must be under the regular care of the applying individual. Regular care entails:
    • Caregivers must ensure adequate shelter is available for the cats
    • Food and fresh water are provided by the caregiver to the cats on a daily schedule and the feeding area is kept clean
    • Food dishes will be removed within 30 minutes feeding and never left overnight to ensure wildlife (i.e. skunks) are not encouraged to enter the location and thus putting the animals at risk
  • Caregivers will actively protect the cats from harm. Under no circumstance will any cat be removed from to colony permanently or given to someone who may cause harm, injury, or death to the animal
  • An alternate caregiver must be found for times of the applying caregiver's absence
  • All appropriate medical treatments will be determined by a licensed veterinarian
  • If found to have severe debilitating disease or injury and upon recommendation from a veterinarian, any cat may be humanely euthanized
  • Failure to comply with the TNVR program terms and conditions will result in the individual's removal from the program. Please keep these terms and conditions for your records.
