Trap-Neuter-Release (TNR) Program
In just five years, two feral cats can produce 11,000 feral kittens, which leads to overpopulation. The Moreno Valley Animal Shelter's TNR program, which has been in operation since 2015, humanely captures feral cats and conducts spay and neuter operations to reduce smell and noise caused by male cats, reduce rodent populations in neighborhoods, and help control the cat population in Moreno Valley.
Since the program began, the Shelter has serviced over 2,100 of our feline friends! Moreno Valley provides these vital initiatives so our community and our cats continue to thrive.
To learn more about our TNR program, call 951.413.3790
