Trap Neuter Return
After winning the Pepsi Refresh Project, one of NKLV's first purchases was additional havahart traps in order to jump start our trap, neuter, return (T/N/R) initiative. This farm in bath was home to 12 cats that needed to be spayed or neutered. Not only did one of our trappers, Judy McHugh, take care of the T/N/R at this farm, but she convinced the farmer to clean up the area of the barn where the cats live and ensure they are receive clean water and nutritious food.
No Kill Lehigh Valley has subsidized the surgery costs for many feral colonies in the Lehigh Valley since receiving our grant money. T/N/R is an ongoing program to help us reach our goal to reduce the cat population and thus the number of animals surrendered to shelters and euthanized.
