TNR Trapping Request

Feral cats exist everywhere, from rural areas to urban settings. In Orleans Parish, community cats are protected by law. Therefore, the Louisiana SPCA does not pick up and remove feral cats unless they are gravely ill or critically injured. Removal of feral cats is an ineffective method for attempting to create a cat-free area. Because of a phenomenon known as the "vacuum effect," new cats would enter and settle in the territory of the removed cats, since the colony location is a source of food and shelter. Instead, the Louisiana SPCA provides a TNR, or Trap-Neuter-Return, program to mitigate issues caused by feral cats and prevent colony growth. After completing this form, our volunteer cat trappers may contact you and hopefully will be able to TNR the cat(s) you have indicated.

Under Orleans Parish Ordinances, Section 18, complainants against feral cats are required to prove that cats roaming free in their neighborhood are a public or private nuisance. Proof is considered photo or video documentation showing neighborhood cats causing physical damage to your property. A nuisance is considered a complaint regarding tangible acts that a cat or many cats are causing which result in damage to your home or property, particularly when steps have been taken to guard against such damages.
What steps, if any, have you taken to prevent damages and deter the cats? Check all that apply.
