C5 is an all-volunteer organization working to prevent unnecessary euthanasia of healthy feral and free-roaming cats by providing trap, neuter and return (TNR) programs to the community. The cats are trapped, spayed or neutered, vaccinated and returned to the colony caretaker. The colony caretakers play an important role in the life of the feral and free-roaming cats. They provide food, water, shelter, and ensure the colony is managed by supporting TNR. 

 

Feral cats or free-roaming cats usually live in colonies. The colony may or may not have a colony caretaker who feeds and manages the colony. Recently, due to foreclosures and economic impacts, domestic/socialized cats are being abandoned. These cats are not truly feral however, they are left to live in the community and fend for themselves. These cats are referred to as free-roaming and often join a nearby colony. 


TNR is an effective, humane way to reduce cat overpopulation issues. Since January, 2010 C5 has trapped over 24,000 feral cats, had them spayed or neutered, and returned to their colony caretakers. By humanely trapping, spaying or neutering, vaccinating, and returning cats to their outdoor homes, no more kittens are born; the population decreases. 

Through education, Trap, Neuter and Return, and advocating legislation, C5 aims to reduce the number of free roaming and feral cats euthanized in Clark County. 

At the same time, we can free up animal control and shelter resources for adoptable animals while assisting peaceful coexistence among communities  and the feral cats who call those communities home.
