Practicing and promoting Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) in DuPage County, Illinois

  We're a 501c3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting and practicing Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) in DuPage County, Illinois. We believe that TNR is the only effective, humane and long-term solution to the problem of cat overpopulation.  

The Feral Fixers e-Newsletter - Issue #1 - October, 2008

  Want to help?

Interested in helping Feral Fixers?  We are looking for a 'few good volunteers'!  Specifically, we're looking for someone to help us transport cats to and from PAWS (the Spay/Neuter clinic we use) in Chicago.  We need transport both in the morning and the afternoon.  If you're interested in helping, call us at (630) 881-FXRS (3977).

  Over 750 cats!

To date, Feral Fixers has had over 750 Feral cats spay/neutered.  Assuming that half of these are female and assuming that each female would have had two litters of four kittens each (a conservative estimate), this means that there have been THREE THOUSAND less kittens born because of our efforts.  Fewer unwanted kittens and fewer cats being euthanized because of no shelter space - we ARE making a difference!

  What is TNR (Trap / Neuter / Return)? TNR is a full management plan in which stray and feral cats already living outdoors in cities, towns, and rural areas are humanely trapped, evaluated, vaccinated, and sterilized by veterinarians. Adoptable cats and kittens are transferred to sheltering organizations to be adopted into good homes. Healthy adult cats unsocialized to humans are returned to their familiar habitat under the lifelong care of their original caretakers.
