There is only one way to solve the problem of unwanted cats and dogs: have all domestic animals spayed or neutered. Thanks to the concerted efforts of Paws-Ability and the local animal rescue groups, and the efforts of the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Animal Protective Services (BCAPS), all animals now adopted in Brunswick County from any of these groups are spayed or neutered and vaccinated before they are adopted.
When there is funding available, we also work with volunteers throughout the community who trap community (outdoor) cats and transport them to a participating veterinarian for spaying or neutering and being vaccinated before the animal is returned to its neighborhood. Widely known as “Trap-Neuter-Return,” this allows the cat to remain in familiar territory, and continue to help reduce rodent population and other services, without reproducing.
Paws-Ability is a member of Alley Cat Allies’ Feral Friends Network. We used their educational materials to help get our community’s TNR programs re-focused and back on track. By educating the public, recruiting and showing volunteers how to trap outdoor cats and transport them to a veterinarian or to Fix A Friend, we can reduce the number of homeless cats and kittens.
If you need assistance in Brunswick County with any outdoor cats who do not have a home and you may be feeding, please contact us.
