Feral cats deserve to live and enjoy life like any pet cat. In fact, too many of Chattanooga’s feral cats are abandoned pets or their descendants. Your help can improve the quality of their lives and at the same time enrich your own.

TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return)
Chattanooga is home to thousands of "feral" cats who often live in social groups called colonies. These colonies can be found in or near warehouses, apartment complexes, parks, wooded areas and almost anyplace where food  and shelter are available. Small colonies may contain just a few cats while larger colonies can easily include more than 30 cats. Feral cats are not tame and are usually quite wary of people.

Cats are prolific breeders and colonies can grow rapidly, increasing 10-fold in just a few years when sufficient food is available. A humane method of limiting the uncontrolled growth of colonies is TNR. Using this method, cats are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and then returned to their outdoor home. After spay/neuter surgery the cats are healthier, quieter, roam and fight less and their numbers stop growing.

To learn more about feral cats visit Alley Cat Allies online. They have a wealth of information on every topic relating to feral cats. Here's a small video sample from Alley Cat Allies library.

 

Helping Feral Cats
Wally's Friends has already spayed and neutered over 1000 feral cats. We support colony caretakers and trappers with low-cost spay/neuter surgeries and feral cats in traps are the only animals we welcome without appointments.

Some of Chattanooga's colonies we have helped:

  • The Talley Colony
  • Cats of Steel
  • Faculty Felines
  • The Brawley Bunch
  • The Argenbright Pride
  • The Walker Clan

Sponsor spay and neuter of feral cats. Your donation will be applied to surgeries for feral cats.
