Join the Neighborhood Cats New York City Feral Cat Database!


If you're managing a colony of feral cats in New York City, or if you have assisted uncertified caretakers TNR their colonies, please take a few minutes to register or update the colony in the Neighborhood Cats New York City Feral Cat Database.

Here's Why:

  • Registering your colony could save your cats' lives!
  • If an eartipped cat ends up in a city shelter, we'll be able to locate the colony and the caretaker quickly and get him out quickly, avoiding unnecessary stress and prolonged exposure to illness.   
  • Close to 100 eartipped cats entered the city shelters in 2012 and less than 20% were from registered colonies, making finding their caretakers more difficult.
  • Because feral cats are territorial, it's very important to return them to their original colony. Relocation is problematic and only used as an absolute last resort.
  • With your help, the database can be a more useful tool, helping prove that TNR works.
