The Bloomfield Animal Shelter, in partnership with People for Animals, will hold a community meeting to introduce Bloomfield’s “Trap/Neuter/
Vaccinate/Return” (TNVR) program at the Bloomfield Civic Center on Tuesday, May 2, 2017 at 7 p.m.
Feral cats, also known as community cats, are cats that live outdoors, often in groups. Many are unsocialized and unable to live in a home as pets. The purpose of the TNVR program is to spay or neuter these cats so they will not reproduce, vaccinate them to ensure they remain healthy, and return them to their original location. Any friendly cats or kittens are retained and adopted out as pets.
Valerie Wilson of People for Animals will present the details of the process and explain the long-term benefits of the TNVR program. She will also explain what residents should do if they see see feral/community cats in their neighborhoods.
There will be a Q & A session at the end of the presentation to address any questions or concerns.
Any residents who are currently feeding cats in their neighborhood are encouraged to attend and have the opportunity to be certified as cat colony caretakers at the end of the meeting.
