We have all seen homeless cats who hang around neighborhoods and businesses in our community. Many of these cats are “feral” – wild because they have had no human contact. They cannot be tamed as pets. They usually live in groups known as feral colonies.

“Stray” cats are homeless tame cats that sometimes join these colonies and produce feral offspring. An estimated 30,000 feral cats each year end up in Atlanta’s shelters, where the only option is euthanasia. The taxpayer cost in the Atlanta area to trap and euthanize these cats is more than $4 million annually. LifeLine Animal Project’s “Catlanta” is the first and largest organized program in the Atlanta area dedicated to humanely controlling feral cat colonies. TNR is a comprehensive method where entire feral colonies are humanely trapped, then evaluated, vaccinated, and neutered by veterinarians. Utilizing the LifeLine Spay & Neuter Clinics, Catlanta has sterilized more than 25,000 feral cats through TNR. TNR Works! NKUT. Best Friends "Fix at Four: Afternoon Stroll" PSA.
