Trap Neuter Return

Trap Neuter Return in Calgary

MEOW Foundation’s TNR program assists feral Calgary cats who do not have the socialization necessary for adoption into homes. Cats in this program are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, microchipped and returned to their neighbourhoods. Trained community caregivers provide them with a stable source of food, water and shelter.

Why is TNR important?

On average, female cats have three litters each year. Kittens born to feral cats are not spayed or neutered, which further increases the homeless cat population. Our TNR program humanely controls and reduces Calgary’s feral cat population, while providing these cats with the essentials necessary for survival outdoors.

How Can I Become a TNR Caregiver?

Caregivers are responsible for providing food and water to the neighbourhood cats in their care. All vet care costs are covered by MEOW Foundation.

If you are feeding feral or wild cats in your neighbourhood, we’d love to have you as a TNR caregiver! Email for more information.

How you can Help Feral Cats

Like all our programs, our TNR program runs by donations from our generous supporters. Your donation helps provide food, shelter, and medical care to Calgary's feral cat communities.

You'll find lots more information on TNR in the Resources section of this website.
