Spay/Neuter Assistance for Feral Cat Colonies

Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) is a program for feral cats designed to reduce the stray and feral cat populations in the community. TNR is widely accepted as the most humane and effective way of managing and reducing free roaming cat populations. The Humane Society of Western Montana offers a comprehensive TNR program for feral cat colony caregivers including free trap rental and spay/neuter assistance. Social and adoptable cats and kittens will be admitted to the Humane Society's adoption program while the remainder of the colony will be spayed or neutered, ear tipped, receive a rabies vaccination and be returned to the colony. Participation in our TNR program is free of charge, but we encourage donations to help continue the program.

To apply for assistance with feral cats, please download and complete the application and tracking list and mail it to:

TNR appointments for feral cats will be established only after the completed application and tracking list has been received.  The Program Manager will contact you after your paperwork has been submitted.
