TRAP – NEUTER – RETURN
Our Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) center serves as a resting stop for free-roaming cats to recuperate after surgery as they go through the TNR process. Feral cats arriving at the CCC receive the necessary food, medication, and love (of course) before they are returned to their outdoor homes.
Cats without indoor homes are what we call free-roaming or community cats. These are simply cats that live in the community. In your alley ways, backyards, and parks. These cats have no owners but are no less deserving of the love and care we give to our indoor pets. When these cats are left alone, they breed A LOT! Thousands of kittens are born outside and many don’t make it. That’s where TNR comes in.
Do you have free roaming cats in your neighborhood? The Community Cat Center offers classes and resources to community teams throughout the state who want to help stop the cycle of free-roaming outdoor cats. Interested in helping the cats in your neighborhood? Check out Resources for information and guides.

PAWSWATCH COMMUNITY CAT CENTER
TNRM stands for “Trap, Neuter, Return, Monitor.” Trap-Neuter-Return is the humane, effective approach for feral cats. Feral cats are humanely trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and ear-tipped (the universal symbol of a neutered and vaccinated cat), and then returned to their outdoor home.
PawsWatch encourages Rhode Islanders to assist the cats on their own property, with our help. We are not a shelter, and we do not take in owned or stray cats; however, we may facilitate the adoption of cats and kittens being cared for by our friends and neighbors.
