ACR's programs promote better care for community cats through trap-neuter-return. Local programs include placing unwanted cats in new homes, running a low-cost spay/neuter clinic, and providing support for local feral cat caretakers. Nationally we operate a network of CAT ACTION TEAMS across the U.S. Our May Spay Challenge has developed a national network of veterinarians offering free or low-cost TNR services.
