Bellevue's TNR Program Aids In Reducing Feral Cat Population

TNR is a humane way to control the feral cat population.

The Village of Bellevue has created a feral cat trap, neuter, and return (TNR) program in conjunction with Cats   Anonymous. The TNR program is a    humane way to control the feral cat population.  In this program, cats are humanely trapped, spayed/neutered, given a rabies shot and returned to their original location under the care of an individual called a caretaker.   Feral cats that have been spayed or neutered have a cropped ear.

If you are caring for a feral/semi-feral, outdoor or barn cat and would like to participate in the TNR program, please contact the Animal Control/Humane Officer, Monica Hoff at (920) 819-6709 The veterinarians at Cats Anonymous are volunteer veterinarians.

To assist in covering the cost of medicine and anesthetics, the Village has partnered Cats Anonymous and has received a grant.
