Found Cat
I Found a Cat
Here's What You Should Do:
  1. Determine if the cat or kitten is a Community Cat or a lost pet and take the appropriate action:
    1. If a cat lives outdoors, it is considered a community cat. If the cat is not ear tipped, you should catch it using a humane trap and bring it to Animal Care’s clinic to be spayed or neutered for free through our Community Cat Diversion program. If the cat is ear tipped, you can leave it there to continue living happily in its home area.
    2. If a cat seems to have escaped from an indoor home (is wearing a collar or other form of identification, is spayed/neutered but not ear-tipped, is de-clawed, or has another indication of being an indoor cat), follow the steps below.
