The Humane Society of Valdosta-Lowndes County would like to announce that we will be hosting our first Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) clinic at our home office on Sunday, May 2nd, 2021. We’ve been working hard to help our companion animals find their furever families and/or foster families. We’ve also conducted several Life Ride transports recently. As a result, we are happy to say that all our animals have foster homes or have been adopted! This was only possible from our dedicated volunteers and community members!
To help our goal of making Lowndes County a No-Kill Zone area, we like to combat the issue at the source, overpopulation. The TNR program is a humane way of controlling the feral cat population. Community cats are self-sufficient and do not pose a threat to the community. Feral cats mean they live outdoors without an owner. With our program, we first capture the cats (Trap), then we spay/neuter and give them a rabies vaccination. Lastly, we release them back to their community. Spaying and neutering the animals can decrease the reproduction of animals and hinder any medical or behavioral problems from developing in pets. The sterilization of female pets is referred to as “spay.” The sterilization of either female or male pets through the removal of reproductive organs is referred to as “neuter.”
We love to help our community’s companion animals, and our ultimate goal is to get Valdosta-Lowndes County to a No Kill zone. It costs us $35 per cat in our TNR clinic, so any donations of supplies, money, or time is greatly appreciated.
