Trap, Neuter/Spay, Return (TNR) Program
You can help improve lives and prevent pet overpopulation by helping us spay and neuter un-owned, free-rooming cats living near your home or business. This service is FREE to Upland residents and businesses.
What is a "community cat"?
A community cat is an un-owned cat living outdoors, either independently or in a colony, in a specific area.
Typically, they are not socialized (not friendly to humans) and cannot be adopted.
What is the general TNR process?
Trap: Humanely capture a cat with a humane trap provided to you (with a refundable deposit of $100).
Neuter (or Spay): Take the cat in the trap to a pre-arranged veterinarian to be fixed, vaccinated, and ear-tipped (the universal sign of a fixed cat).
Return: Pick the cat up after recovery, return them to their outdoor home where they were trapped, and return the trap for your deposit
