Our goal is to save feral cats in Leon County. We do this through a variety of methods: TVARM (see below), rescue from city shelters, taming, and adoption.
To help save the lives of feral cats (the wild offspring of abandoned or stray cats) in Leon County, Florida, we are humanely trapping cats, and having them altered (neutered or spayed), vaccinated, and micro-chipped. When they are ready to return to their colony, we make sure that there is a caretaker to feed them. A caretaker is a loving individual committed to feeding and watching over a colony of feral cats. This is called a TVARM (trap, vaccinate, alter, release, and maintain) program. In some cases, we will also work to tame kittens and adult cats.
