Cats are domestic by nature, but without human contact, the offspring of an abandoned pet will quickly revert to a wild or untamed state known as feral.

Feral cats live in family groups, or colonies, near places where food and shelter can be found. They live an average of five harsh years before succumbing to illness, starvation, injuries or cruelty. During this time, they reproduce and the colony grows.

The most effective and humane way to break this tragic cycle is to Trap, Neuter and Return (TNR) the adult cats to the colony and to alter and domesticate as many kittens as possible.

TEAM supports TNR and feral cats in traps are welcome aboard the TEAM Mobile Feline Unit.

TEAM has user-friendly, humane traps available for a refundable deposit and those who bring a feral cat to TEAM for spay/neuter can receive a rebate through the TEAM Incentive Program (TIP).
