What is TNR?

No, it is not the latest social media. It means: Trap. Neuter. Return.  It is the humane way to trap feral cats, spay or neuter them, vaccinate them and then return them to their cat colony to live out the rest of their lives.  Why is it important to do this? Feral cats can live in our communities without adding to the homeless population.   They will live without disease, spraying or fighting. And still help us with rodent control. A feral cat can live 10 years if it is sterilized.

 You did it!  Thanks to you – Johnny can get the surgery he needs to live  a wonderful life!   Read his story below!

johnny 4 edited (2)Hi! I’m Johnny. My prior family surrendered me to the shelter when I was sick.  San Gabriel Valley Humane Society has taken real good care of me and I’m almost all well and ready for a new home. But first I must have a surgery and this is where you can help me. Unfortunately, a vet has diagnosed me with an obstruction in my nose, probably polyps, which are interfering with my breathing.   I need surgery to remove these polyps and to breathe normally. I need to raise $1,000 for my surgery.  With your help and the surgery, I can live a long, healthy life with a purrever family.    READ MORE
