Dakota – May 21, 2013 – On Wednesday,
May 22, members of Heartland Humane Society
will team up with Cedar County Veterinary
Services and the City of Vermillion to
perform the humane society’s first TNR
To stabilize and ultimately reduce the feral
cat population, many animal and governmental
organizations are turning to trap, neuter
and return (TNR), a method of managing cat
colonies that involves trapping the animals,
spaying or neutering them, vaccinating, and
returning them to where they were found.
The project is being made possible with a
grant from the American Society for the
Prevention of Cruelity to Animals (ASPCA.)
“We are very excited to perform this TNR
clinic and we’ve had wonderful support from
Cedar County Vet and the city of
Vermillion,” Kerry Schmidt, Executive
Director of Heartland Humane Society, said.
“Studies have shown that such clinics like
this one can reduce the cat population by as
much as 60 percent over time.”
A project goal of 50 cats has been set.
