Globe University Partners with Local Cat Organization to Hold Trap-Neuter-Return Event

APPLETON, Wis. (April 11, 2014) – To reduce the feral cat population and decrease the spread of disease, Globe University-Appleton veterinary technology program along with Wish Upon a Paw and Cats Anonymous are holding a trap-neuter-return (TNR) event on April 19, 2014, from 7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. Over the course of the day, the groups expect to spay/neuter and vaccinate more than 100 feral cats and release them back into their territories.

Studies have proven that TNR is the single most successful method of stabilizing and maintaining healthy feral cat colonies, while providing the best life for the animals themselves. Feral cats are often associated with bothersome mating behavior including roaming, yowling, fighting and odor. TNR is very beneficial to the community because it reduces these behaviors, as well as allows for the cats to continue providing natural rodent control in rural areas.
