South Shore Felines' mission is to humanely reduce the population of Community Cats via
education and Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). We are not a shelter to accept cats from the public.
FREE TNR for cats in Ruskin (zip code 33570) from Jan. 1 - March 31, 2014. Thanks to a generous grant from PetSmart Charities, we are now offering FREE spay / neuter services for outdoor cats living in zip code 33570. Call 813-393-0844 or email Info@SouthShoreFelines.org to take advantage of this offer and get more information.
Over decades of experience with multiple methods around the world, the common approaches of do nothing, feeding bans, and trap and remove have proven to be ineffective. The only proven approach to date is Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR).
TNR involves colony management within targeted geographic areas, spay/neuter, rabies vaccination, distemper vaccination, and ear-tipping (removing the left ear tip to indicate a TNR cat). Over time, with continued monitoring, the colony is substantially reduced if not eliminated.
