Georgina Feral Cat Committee is a dedicated group of volunteers whose goal is to work with the community to address the feral cat issue in the Town of Georgina. In summer of 2017, we received support for the volunteer work we do by Georgina Town Council and we work under the auspices of Paws of Georgina.


Evidence supports the best way of addressing the feral cat issue is to adopt a TNR program. 

TNR stands for Trap, Neuter and Return. Volunteers work with the community to trap the feral cats, get them spayed or neutered (and vaccinated!), and then return them to their colony where they are cared for by a colony caretaker. During the spay/neuter surgery, one of the cat's ears gets "tipped" to identify them as spayed or neutered. 


TNR has been practiced around the world for years and is proven to stop the breeding cycle of cats and therefore improves their lives while preventing reproduction. Simply removing the cats and killing them leaves a void. They will ultimately be replaced with more feral cats. 


Once spayed and neutered, feral cats no longer exhibit many of the problematic behaviours that are often associated with feral cat colonies - particularly fighting, yowling and spraying.
