Friends of Feral Cheshire Cats is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that administers a Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program for feral cats in Cheshire, CT. TNR is the humane trapping, sterilization/vaccination, and management plan for feral (wild or unsocialized cats). Visit our FAQ page for more information about feral cats and TNR.

Our program is staffed entirely by volunteers. We offer assistance to manage feral cat populations. In most circumstances, we do not have the resources to do the trapping ourselves, but can review requests for trapping on a case by case basis especially for those who are elderly or physically incapable of trapping.

  • We arrange vet appointments.
  • We assess the situation and provide guidance.
  • We provide access to humane traps through our trap bank (refundable deposit required).
  • We provide step-by-step instructions for the humane trapping of feral cats.
  • We provide transportation if resources allow.
  • We provide financial assistance as resources allow.

All cats that go through our TNR program will be ear-tipped and MUST be released to the area where they were humanely trapped. We do not provide relocation services or removal services for feral cats.


Friends of Feral Cheshire Cats does not operate a shelter. We offer a limited foster care network for homeless kittens and abandoned cats in our Cheshire, but cannot take in most cats. We can provide assistance in placing a cat or kitten you have found by providing financial assistance for spay/neutering, vaccinations and other medical treatment that will make the cat or kitten a better candidate for adoption. We can also provide a courtesy posting on our web site and assistance with the adoption process. Please contact us for details.

Our organization has been active in educating the children of our community about feral cats and the importance of spaying/neutering. We welcome requests to speak to school children and scouting troops.
