Cat Action Team


Caring for and eliminating reproduction in feral cat colonies

Washoe County is home to more than 26,000 feral cats, most living in colonies. The NHS Cat Action Team (CAT) creates awareness about living harmoniously with feral cats and the benefits of Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) – an effective and humane way of managing feral and outdoor cat populations – as well as facilitating TNR itself. Over 700 cats were spayed or neutered thanks to CAT’s efforts during 2013. For more information about Cat Action Team, call the animal help desk at (775) 856-2000 ext. 337 or email .
