North Shore Animal League America’s Community Outreach program helps bring awareness to the plight of community cats through education, TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return), assisting with the adoption of friendly cats and kittens, and supporting community cat caretakers. The program is designed to provide education to the public on how to help these cats live long and healthy lives, while at the same time reducing the population through TNR and adoption of ‘friendlies.’

About the Program

The Community Outreach Program offers education and resources to help community cats and kittens in your area, including:

  • Equipment rental for TNR and for fostering a community cat in need, such as a pregnant or injured cat
  • In-person training on our campus to learn how to use a trap and other equipment
  • Low-cost feral houses
  • TNR
  • A food bank for community cat caregivers
