Trap Neuter Return in Calgary

MEOW Foundation’s TNR program is specifically designed to assist feral cats who do not have the level of socialization necessary for adoption into homes. Cats in this program are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, microchipped, and returned to their neighbourhoods. Trained community caregivers provide them with a stable source of food, water and shelter.

Why is TNR important?

TNR MarlboroughOn average, female cats have three litters of 4-6 kittens a year. Kittens born to feral cats are not spayed or neutered which further increases the homeless cat population. MEOW Foundation’s TNR program effectively and humanely controls and reduces Calgary’s feral cat population, while providing these cats with the essentials necessary for survival outdoors.

Please note: Due to severe cold weather during the months of December and January, our TNR Program will be operating at a reduced capacity.

MEOW is only able to offer TNR services to cats within the city of Calgary.
