KCHA is a proud partner of Alley Cat Allies, and was named one of ACA’s Future Five: Shelter Partners to Save Cats’ Lives. As such, KCHA enacted a Feral Cat Protection Policy, meaning we serve healthy feral cats through Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). KCHA does not impound feral or “free-roaming” cats for euthanasia or rehoming. If you need assistance with affordable spay and neuter services for feral or free-roaming cats, please call (304) 342-1576 ext. 119.
In TNR, cats are humanely trapped, spay/neutered, vaccinated against Rabies, ear-tipped for easy identification, and returned to their colony to live out their lives. TNR:
- Stabilizes the cat population
- Reduces nuisance, mating-related behaviors such as spraying, yowling, and fighting
- Prevents unwanted kittens
