Trap Neuter Release

Community TNR Program

The City of Oklahoma City offers a Trap Neuter Release (TNR) program for feral cats, known to some as the Community Cat Program. If you live inside of Oklahoma City limits you are eligible to bring your community cat to Oklahoma City Animal Welfare any day of the week between 9 – 5:30. Your cat will be spayed/neutered, receive a rabies vaccination and an ear tip, and be returned to the address you provide them at no charge to you.

The TNR program helps manage free-roaming cat populations without harming them and can eventually lead to a humane end to a cat overpopulation situation in local neighborhoods. Oklahoma City Animal Welfare encourages the public to take part in this program.

OK Humane & TNR

We are currently accepting a total of 15 walk in appointments per day Monday – Friday for feral or community cats. Pricing for these cats is $30 which covers the cost of surgery, a rabies vaccination, and an ear tip. Drop off is between 7:30 – 8:30 am and pick up is the same day between 4:00 – 5:00 pm. This pricing is available to any person trapping feral and free roaming cats for “TNR”, regardless of home address or income. An ear tip is mandatory to receive this pricing and to be eligible for a walk-in appointment, no exceptions. These spots are on a first come first serve basis and each cat must arrive in their own cat trap or secure hard sided carrier. If a cat arrives in a cardboard box, plastic bin, wire dog crate, or if there are multiple cats in one trap/carrier they will be turned away. This is for the safety of the cats, as they can escape these carriers. You will need to wait 24 hours before releasing your cat back outside as they will be disoriented from sedation. For any animal not picked up by 5:00 pm there will be a $25 late fee and any animal remaining at the clinic past 5:30 pm will be charged a $50 boarding fee.

If you do not wish for your cat to receive an ear tip you will need to schedule the cat for a non-TNR spay or neuter surgery appointment online through our Spay & Neuter page and they will not be eligible for the discounted price.
