TNR (Trap-Neuter-Release)

This program is geared towards spaying/neutering our free roaming cats here in Steuben County, we are all aware that we have an overpopulation of cats here in the county and we need your help to help them. Unfortunately our shelter in struggling with funds and cannot afford to spay/neuter every cat in the county but with your help we might be able to do more than we are right now. We provide traps here at our shelter (we require a $35.00 deposit but is returned to you when our trap comes back) and ask that you donate $56.00 for the surgery. All of our local vets are aware of this program, all you need to do is call and make an appointment with them to know when you need to trap any local free roaming cats. Please call the shelter for any additional information or questions.

Foster Program

We need people willing to take animals into their home on a temporary basis, mostly for medical needs (pregnant, mamas with newborns, animals that are to young, etc.) and Humane Society pays for their food and treatment. When the problem is resolved, they are then returned to our adoption program.
