Community Cat Policies: The Community Cat Program, launched in 2011, is a program aimed at reducing the population of outdoor felines by ensuring all owned cats are spayed or neutered and that free-roaming cats are trapped, altered and returned to their outdoor homes by their caretakers. Through Trap-Neuter-Return (“TNR”), we are able to provide these felines with necessary vaccinations and health checks before sterilizing them and returning them to their homes. The SPCA provides this resource at no cost to residents of Charlottesville and Albemarle and works diligently with members of the public to help manage the community cat population. TNR is the only method proven to effectively reduce the free-roaming cat population. It is a non-lethal approach that is being embraced by towns and municipalities all across the nation.

The SPCA provided sterilization surgeries and veterinary care for 801 community cats and kittens in 2021. Since we started the Community Cat program in 2011, feline stray intake has dropped by 53%, allowing us to increase feline transport and save more lives!
