Trap Neuter Release
High quality spay / neuter for feral cats is possible thanks to Friends of Companion Animals and the Paws Clinic. Our times for the trap neuter release service varies so make sure to call or message us about the times for spaying and neutering and how you can help control cat populations in your area.

How Can FOCA Help Me Trap a Cat?
For help trapping, call Friends of Companion Animals at (734) 224-0700. FoCA will lend you a trap and show you how to use it. Once you trap the cat or cats, you can drop them off at FoCA during scheduled times and we will take them to be spayed/neutered. You can then return the cat(s) to your neighborhood, where they will have healthier and happier lives (and prevent a growing cat colony).
How Much does it cost?
There is no ‘rental fee’ for the trap and it’s only $30 per cat to cover the clinic costs to do the spay / neuter. For those people living in communities where cat populations are creeping upward, it’s a small investment in your local cat colonies future.
How It Works In Four Steps
- FoCA will lend you a trap & show you how to use it.
- Once trapped, call FoCA to bring the cat(s) to us, along with $30 per cat to cover vet fees.
- Paws Clinic veterinarians do the spay/neuter procedure and ear tip.
- You can return the cat(s) to your neighborhood knowing you helped prevent a growing cat colony.
“Grounded in science, Trap Neuter Return stops the breeding cycle of cats and therefore improves their lives while preventing reproduction…Since feral cats are not adoptable, they are killed in pounds and shelters. With a successful program like Trap Neuter Return, it’s hard to believe that animal control agencies continue to kill cats, even though that approach has shown zero results.” – Alley Cat Allies
FOCA’s Cat Programs
The Paws Clinic, a high-quality, affordable spay and neuter service, has done over 40K procedures. They offer discounts to people seeking low-cost vet services for felines.
Trap & Release
To help control the cat population in Monroe County FoCA offers trap, spay/neuter, and release programs. It’s a great way to keep neighborhood cats from overpopulation.
Discourage rodents and provide a companion for horses and other farm animals. Each cat is spayed/neutered and vaccinated so they are ready to ‘work’ and be a friend to your family.
We often have senior cats in need of quiet loving households. At other times, we’ve got felines of all ages that need a foster home. For senior humans seeking companionship it’s win/win.
