The Fredericton CARMA chapter has closed its 2017 Trap-Neuter-Return program for the winter. TNR is not feasible in cold weather as cats as need time to recover from surgery and regrow fur on shaved areas. We will resume TNR in the Spring of 2018 for the Greater Fredericton community. The territory served by Fredericton chapter is defined on our coverage map accessed through the link above. We have again this year surpassed our annual goal of 500 spay/neuters for colony cats in this territory.
Our foster/adoption program operates year-round to provide homes for at-risk friendly cats and vulnerable kittens we have removed from TNR sites.
If you are caring for or concerned about a stray or a group of free-roaming cats, check out How to Help a Stray Cat on the main page of this website. Cats need people to survive. Please continue to provide food, water and shelter through the winter months. Plans for simple, life-saving cat shelters are offered under Resources on the CARMA website main page.
CARMA Fredericton began a Trap-Neuter-Return for feral cat colonies in the Greater Fredericton area in 2007. Since then we have spayed or neutered more than 6,500 cats.
To achieve our goal of 500 spay/neuters annually, we adopted a large-scale clinic model for our feral spay/neuter program, using trained volunteers and donated veterinary services. Local veterinary hospitals host these events, enabling us to spay/neuter 70 or more cats in in one morning.
It takes a community! Join us! You will learn some new skills, met some great human beings, encounter unforgettable cats. The CARMA experience will change you as it changes life for the cats and the neighbourhoods they live in.
