You have too many cats in your neighborhood? You can improve the lives of outdoor cats with Trap-Neuter-Return, the humane and effective approach for feral cats.  To successfully trap, neuter, vaccinate, eartip, and return feral cats, you need a plan. Learn how you can help reduce the number by humanely trapping and sterilizing.  It's the only method proven to work.


The City of Garland has implemented a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program and Garland Pawsibilities is here to mentor Garland residents by:

             *    Training citizens on caring for a feral cat colony.
             *    Giving tricks of the trade for trapping feral cats.
             *    Certifying residents as Colony Managers.
             *    Providing surgical/sterilization assistance when available.  

Please note that trapping assistance, pick-up of cats for surgery and/or transportation is generally not available.  
If you are interested in becoming a certified colony manager or volunteering with the TNR program, email us at for more details.
