Purpose and Proposition


Animal Care of Davis County’s Community Cats program works to manage, control, and improve the lives of free-roaming cats in our community.


Community cats are cats that live outdoors in the community. These are typically feral cats that have no interest in humans, and avoid contact. Modern animal shelters have realized that our facilities are not necessarily the best place for cats, especially cats used to living outdoors. The practice known as trap-neuter-return (TNR) is based on the idea that if these community cats were doing well before entering the shelter, they will do well if they are returned, finding food and support from people in that neighborhood.  Our role is to make sure they are sterilized (spayed/neutered) and vaccinated.
