If you’re feeding cats in Harford County, you are not alone. One estimate by Best Friends Animal Society puts the number of feral cats in Harford County close to 35,000. No Kill Harford has been in touch with dozens of people just like you who are helping community cats by providing them with food, water, and shelter. Harford Community Cats is our Trap, Neuter, and Return (TNR) program. If you are feeding feral cats it is CRITICAL that you are doing the following things for your colony:
- Ear Tipping
- Providing clean food & water daily
- Providing shelter
- Seeking veterinary treatment when necessary
- Addressing complaints from neighbors
- Making sure your cats are cared for when you are not available
We Can Help
You don’t have to do it all by yourself. We can help with trapping, transport to clinics, caring for your colony when you’re away, and more. Our focus is to make sure that colonies are cared for properly in order to protect human health, maintain a high standard of animal welfare, and stabilize the feral cat population in Harford County. If you need financial assistance in order to have your colony spayed, neutered, and vaccinated or for cat food we can help with that as well.
To get started, please register your colony with us. Your information will be kept completely confidential. We’ll contact you to talk about your needs and provide you with all of the assistance that we can. If your colony is all spayed, neutered, and vaccinated and you don’t need any help, consider registering anyway. If will help us keep a census of feral cats in Harford County and identify locations to return ear tipped cats to. Again, your information will be completely confidential.
