By fixing and caring for cats in your neighborhood, you are taking a step towards ending the homeless cat overpopulation in Indianapolis as well as improving their lives. Congratulations for taking responsibility, acting humanely, and taking a positive action instead of doing nothing at all.
What is a community cat? It’s a cat that has been fixed, vaccinated and eartipped then released back into the area from which it was found. They are the unowned stray or feral (unsocialized) cats who live outdoors in our neighborhoods with or without a particular caretaker.
Community cats may be temporarily brought inside a colony caretaker’s residence, for their protection, in the event of severe environmental conditions or medical necessity.
Report acts of neglect, cruelty, abandonment or abuse directed against any cat(s). Call the Mayor’s Action Center at (317) 327- 4622
Fixing the cats/Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) coupled with proper feeding, shelter and on-going health monitoring stops the unchecked breeding of the cats, improves their lives and allows the colony to diminish naturally over time. Failure to properly care for community cats can exclude you from our program.
