Community Cat Programs

Based on years of research, Community Cat Programs (CCPS) offer a unique model for animal welfare organizations and shelters to ensure quality of life for both indoor and outdoor pets. Guided by principles that benefit each cat as an individual, rather than a blanket intake process that can actually harm many thriving felines, CCPs consistently lead to better outcomes and increased quality of life for cats and the communities they call home. 

At Liberty Humane, we strive to stay current on all research being done in this field and have compiled the below list of resources that have guided our understanding and policies surrounding community cat programs and trap, neuter, return. We encourage all of our supporters and stakeholders to review the many great resources below to help better understand this important work.
