The Western PA Humane Society is a partner in Three Rivers Feral Project, which is an initiative to provide low-cost spay/neuter/vaccination services to area caregivers who care for feral cat colonies. This program is available to feral colony caregivers who practice Trap-Neuter-Release, which is the humane solution for feral cats.
Included in the $30 per cat fee is spay or neuter surgery, a one-year rabies vaccination, a dose of flea treatment, and an ear-tip to identify the cat as an altered cat who is part of a managed feral cat colony. Any feral cat or kitten over the age of three months is eligible for this program. (Note: A feral is different from a stray cat. A stray cat is a pet cat that has been lost or abandoned. Feral cats are born in the wild and are unable to be safely handled)
Appointments must be made in advance for TNR, and openings are available weekdays and Sundays. Drop off is between 8:00 and 9:00 AM and pick up is between 3:00 and 4:30 PM. Each cat must arrive at our clinic in a humane box trap. Traps should be covered with a towel or a sheet in order to make this experience less stressful on the feral cat.
The Western PA Humane Society can provide weekly rentals of traps for $60 each, $40 of which will be refunded upon the return of the trap in good condition within 7 days. Traps returned after 7 days will receive a $10 per week reduction of the initial refund amount. Please contact Shelley Rosenberg at 412-321-4625 X 216 or email@example.com
The Western PA Humane Society encourages compassionate individuals who feed feral cats in our communities to practice Trap-Neuter-Return. Most of these cats are not adoptable in a shelter environment, but will thrive when spayed/neutered, provided food, water and shelter, and allowed to continue their lives in their outdoor home.
To show our support of colony managers, for every 10th TNR surgery that you bring to the shelter - it is free of charge! (based upon Calendar Year)

The Western Pennsylvania Humane Society rents traps for use only with stray and/or feral cats. In the occasion that wildlife is trapped, the individual should contact a wildlife pest control company.
