Introduction to Trapping Cats
FCF's Trapping Assistance Program
Preparing to Trap
Trapping Pregnant Cats or Mothers with Young Kittens
FCF loans trapping and recovery equipment in
Alameda and Contra Costa counties of Northern California. Traps
come in three sizes: kitten, cat, and raccoon (for large
cats). We have recovery cages sized for two cats at a time. Basic
instruction is provided for inexperienced trappers. A deposit
is required and is refunded when the equipment is returned in
Our traps are intended for getting
feral cats spayed or neutered and releasing them
back in their home neighborhood; our traps are not to be used
to take any animal to the shelter or pound.
Information on local
veterinations who will spay/neuter feral cats is available.
The Fix Our Ferals program holds periodic clinics where feral
cats can be spayed/neutered at no cost. Check
their website for details.
