We accept feral cats only in a humane trap, with only one cat per trap. For liability reasons, we cannot accept feral cats where 2 or more are in one trap. You may drop off feral cats anytime Monday through Wednesday from 9am to 4pm for surgery. You can rent a humane trap from us by calling or stopping by the center, located at 1781 Mars Hill Rd. in Watkinsville.

About Feral Cats and Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR):

It's important to take responsibility for the neighborhood feral. Left unaltered, this cat can reproduce and before long there will be dozens and dozens of feral cats living in your neighborhood. The best thing you can do for feral cats is Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). The benefits to keeping feral cats around outweigh the cost of altering them.Removing feral cats from a location is ineffective as it opens a territorial void and then more unaltered cats move in, starting the breeding cycle all over again.

If feral cats are taken to animal control, they are considered unadoptable and will most likely be killed. Help feral cats get a new lease on life by getting them spayed or neutered at Athens Area Humane Society!
