"PARTNERING FOR A PAWS"
The Caldwell Police Department & Wellington Humane Society
are teaming up for a TNR PROGRAM.
Trap/Neuter/Release (TNR) is a way to help reduce stray cats in the community. It is a safe and humane way to assist in controlling the population of stray cats by ending the breeding cycle.
TNR will help in addressing community concerns, reducing the number of cats taken to animal shelters, and reduce the number of unowned and feral cats. TNR will also help prevent and reduce the number of predatorial animals coming into the neighborhoods in search of food.
The Caldwell Police Department will be setting live traps around Caldwell, trapping and transporting the feral cats to the Wellington Humane Society (WHS). Once there, the feral cats will be spay/neutered, vaccinated and ear clipped. Once this is complete, the Police Department will return the cat to the same location they were trapped.
Although we would like to be able to provide this service to all, there is a limited amount of funding and space. We are asking Caldwell Residents to assist in our determination of the location needs. If you would like to request a certain location for trapping, you will need to complete the Request Form below.
