Community cats can reproduce quickly and may, in large quantities, become a nuisance to their surrounding area. Animal Services recommends trap-neuter-return (TNR) services to sterilize and vaccinate community cats.
Animal Services is proud to offer a TNR program to residents concerned about emerging cat populations. This program is ideal for residents who are amenable to the cats remaining on their property, but would like to have them sterilized and vaccinated.
The Animal Services TNR program is free to Orange County residents for up to five cats per household. The Animal Services enforcement team takes lead on the program and will set the trap and transport the cat(s) to and from the clinic. This program is best suited for smaller populations. Please call 3-1-1 to begin.
