Old Dominion Animal Hospital hosts TNR Clinic with Companion Animal Fund and CAT Action Team

We are thrilled to be partnering with Cat Action Team and the Companion Animal Fund to sponsor our second TNR (trap-neuter-release) clinic on Saturday April 20th. 

This is an important community initiative given that the number of feral cats is on the rise. Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) is a humane method of managing the feral cat population. 

What happens at a TNR Clinic? 

Feral cats- who live together in colonies, are trapped and then brought into an animal hospital where they can be spayed/neutered and vaccinated for rabies.  After they have recovered, these cats are then released back to their original territory or placed for adoption by local non-profit rescue organizations when foster homes are available. 

By partnering with CAT Action Team and the Companion Animal Fund, we are able to provide a humane and effective way of treating our community’s feral cat population. TNR Clinics like ours help to ensure that colonies do not grow exponentially in the spring with new kittens and behavioral concerns, like fighting, breeding and marking are eliminated. 

How can you help? 

We are currently collecting donations of towels for our clinic. We are currently accepting clean towels at our Charlottesville location on 811 Preston Avenue Charlottesville, VA 22903.
