Feral Cats

To address the feral cat population, The Town of North Hempstead (TONH) has a free TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return) program for its residents. To summarize, humane traps are lent to residents who bring the cats in on a designated date to be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and ear-tipped. Residents pick up the cat(s) after surgery and return them to their original colony after holding them for a small recuperation period. Currently, Spay/Neuter Clinics are scheduled once a month. 

The TONH also has a contract with a certified humane trapper for those requiring assistance. 

If you need assistance with feral cats in your neighborhood, please call 311 and fill out a service request. Someone from the Feral Cat Program will contact you.
