Feral Cat Trap-Neuter-Release Program
The Humane Society of Boulder Valley offers a Trap-Neuter-Release program package price: $50 includes spay or neuter surgery, a spay incision line tattoo, an FeLV/FIV test and Rabies and FVRCP vaccinations. In addition to the sterilization surgery, one ear is tipped (notched horizontally) while the animal is under anesthesia. The ear is tipped to help easily identify those altered feral animals at a distance, so that they do not need to be anesthetized again in the future in order to determine if a spay/neuter has been performed.

Feral cats must be inside their traps when they are brought to the clinic for surgery. Clients should bring a cat carrier to transport the cat home. Clients should consider providing a safe indoor location (such as a garage) for the cat to stay in for one night following surgery.
