Little Blue Society resolves
highly volatile, difficult disputes arising from the presence and
care-giving of feral cats in areas e.g. businesses, churches,
residential areas, public facilities...etc., where they are not
welcome. This has pitted tenants against landlords, neighbor against
neighbor, government agencies against private citizens, and city/county
employees against Management.
We have helped numerous humane
societies, animal welfare organizations and individuals resolve such conflicts. To date, 99.9% of all
disputes have been peacefully and successfully mediated.
negotiate with the stakeholders to set up a legitimate TNR
(trap-neuter-release into area where trapped) program on the property.
The caregiver is allowed by the opposing party to continue feeding and caring for the
cats in a mutually designated area, and to provide veterinary care for those animals that need it. The
population is monitired by the caregiver and the cats that are becoming socialized are
placed in foster homes for eventual adoption to permanent homes. New cats that come in to the area are also incorporated into the TNR program.
The goal of this Program is to achieve zero population growth and to eventually vacate the area of cats.
- Little Blue Society believes that the TNR Program, when properly maintained, benefits both cats and wildlife because it is the only known method that effectively lowers feral cat populations in the long term. And fewer cats means less predation, so TNR benefits local bird populations and other wildlife. However, we DO NOT advocate maintaining feral colonies in biologically sensitive areas where the cats might threaten endangered species or other similarly challenged wildlife. We proactively encourage and assist with relocation in those circumstances.
TNR program is endorsed by all animal welfare organizations, local and
national humane societies, and numerous cities and counties that
provide low-cost spay and neuter vouchers to encourage the use of TNR,
which has been proven to be the most humane and effective way of
reducing the number of unwanted cats. The TNR program also lowers the cost that shelters incur to house, feed and euthanize the unwanted animals.
- The feral cats on the property provide a free rodent elimination service.
- The feral cats are health-checked/healthy and free of disease, which helps protect the neighborhood's free-roaming pet cats.
Little Blue Society advises and educates individuals and organizations on proper maintainance of feral cat colonies to minimize conflict with human neighbors and other wildlife species. We also educate the public on responsible pet ownership and the importance of spaying and neutering companion animals.
